WINTER ENTERTAINING IDEAS

STYLISH SOUP BUFFET


Keep guests warm with a buffet of different soups. Choose one cream soup, one vegetarian option and one of something lighter, along with bread, croutons, fresh herbs and seasonings so your friends and family can dress up their bowls to their own tastes. Package up leftovers into Mason jars along with print-outs of each soup recipe while everyone is mingling and having a good time, and leave the jars by the door. Guests can then grab their soup of choice along with a recipe card as a parting gift.

CHILI COOK OFF


Chili is one of those quintessential winter meals, so we think it would be fun to base a winter party around everyone’s favorite cold-weather dish. If you have the space, you can have people actually cook during the party (start earlier in the day so there’s time to cook, eat and mingle), but if there isn’t room, have guests create their favorite chili recipe at home and bring it over. Try to get as many different variations as you can (vegetarian, white bean, chicken, etc.) to keep things interesting, and provide ballots so everyone can vote for their favorite. Have a small prize on hand for the winner (an apron or wooden would spoon work well)

COMFORT FOOD POT LUCK

There’s nothing better than comfort food on a cold day, so why not gather a group of your nearest and dearest and have each of them bring their favourite comfort food dish? To keep things organized and avoid doubles (or triples) of one dish, ask guests to RSVP with the dish they plan to bring. If there are guests who don’t like to cook, have them supply things like bread, salads and snacks. Once everyone has arrived, set up a long table with plates, bowls and cutlery so everyone can serve themselves. For beverages, we suggest mulled wine, hot apple cider, or red wine sangria with cranberries and orange slices.
