One of the things I love about our family Christmas celebration is that it's lounge-y. We lounge. We putter. We keep it low key. In fact, last year we made the whole event a PJ party, and the kids have asked us to do that again this year. I think that is awesome, because there is no pressure … and even better ... no make-up! Just the fam in our pure, unadulterated state, enjoying each other.
On gift-opening day, we have a huge spread with appetizers, soups and cookie trays. This year I will be making Black & Blue Cheese Ball Mix as a dip with veggies and Honey Teriyaki Peanut Dip - which is not only a family fave, but also a 5-star recipe on our website.
In addition to the delicious food, we also have an array of indulgent beverages, both hot and cold. Check out the video below for some casually elegant inspiration!
