It’s the most busiest time of the year! With work, kids, family and all the Holiday hustle and bustle, it’s sometimes difficult to juggle all the Holiday obligations. But, Holiday parties don’t have to be elaborate or exhausting. How about a mini Holiday party with your favorite people with good food and great company? Isn’t that’s what the Holidays are all about? Getting together? Well, I’m excited to share some easy tips on how you can host a low key, festive and easy Holiday Party for family and friends!
If you’re like me, you don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen preparing a meal for a party. Sure, you want good food for your guests, but you also have to clean and decorate. So why not pop a few tasty Red Baron Pizzas in the oven, whip up a batch of Buffalo Wings with Ranch Buffalo Dip and serve plenty of Coca-Cola™ in holiday themed bottles? Then you have plenty of time to clean, decorate and best of all enjoy the company of family and friends.
How to Host an Easy Holiday Party
Before you start cooking and decorating, you’ll want to stop by Albertsons to stock up on Coca-Cola and Red Baron Pizza, plus the ingredients you need to make the wings and sauce. Not only was I able to find everything I needed for the party, I also received a Fandango Movie reward. We have a tradition of going to the movies on Christmas, so the timing couldn’t be more perfect!
Once you have your grocery shopping done, you’ll want to start with the buffalo wings. You’ll love how easy these are to make, see my recipe below along with the accompanying Ranch Buffalo Wing Dipping Sauce.
Once your wings and pizzas are in the oven, you’ll want to start decorating the party area. Keep things simple by utilizing holiday decor you have on hand. I set out my set of flocked trees along with garland and woodsy decor. I lined the table with a buffalo check table runner and hung a banner in front.
To add more interest, I added a few crates under the table with red lanterns and more trees.
Aren’t these Santa themed bottles perfect? My family loves Coca-Cola with Red Baron Pizza and Buffalo Wings. And I love that they double as decorations with their holiday themed packaging!
I used galvanized cake stands topped with wooden chargers to serve the pizza.
Not only do the stands give height to the table, but it adds to the woodsy farmhouse decor.
I served the Ranch Buffalo Dipping Sauce in a buffalo check bowl and the wings on a large white platter to coordinate with the theme as well.
