1. Roasted Vegetable Platter

This is not your average charcuterie board! These boards make great finger food ideas for holiday parties. To create this spread, use roasted vegetables like carrots, asparagus, fingerling potatoes, roasted red bell peppers, and tomatoes. Accompany everything with your favorite dips like hummus — a couple of varieties at least so that you have something to satisfy every palate! You can also add cheeses if you like or keep it vegan-friendly.

And to serve it? We recommend choosing a beautiful wood board for a cozy winter look. Festive gold
appetizer forks and spreaders are the perfect size for your guests to make up a plate of delicious veg.

2. Heirloom Tomato Salad

Heirloom tomatoes are one of the best parts of summer — but they also make for amazing holiday party recipes. You’ll need diced heirloom tomatoes, pickled red onion, burrata cheese, and balsamic glaze. Mix these ingredients and serve with a beautiful serving set for a simple salad to go with the rest of your holiday cooking.

3. Bake an Apple Galette

If you’re looking for simple holiday recipes, this one is a rustic take on the traditional apple pie. You’re going to need apples, sugar, cinnamon, honey, and butter. You can make a simple dough with flour, sugar, salt, and butter for the crust, or you can use a pre-made pie crust to put everything together. Serve your finished galette with coffee in our cozy wood-patterned coffee cups.

4. Fall and Winter Flatbreads

If you’re searching for a versatile cooking idea, this one's for you! With flatbreads, you can create any number of easy finger food recipes, or you can make themed party food.

Otherwise, choose your favorite toppings and bake them on store-bought pizza dough for quick, easy, and perfectly elegant cocktail party food.

Need topping ideas? Try pastrami, red onions, Swiss cheese on rye dough, kale, Parmesan, roasted chickpeas, or grilled vegetables with tzatziki sauce.

5. Cranberry Mule Mocktail

What’s a party without a festive drink, right? Cranberries are traditional around both Thanksgiving and Christmas, plus this recipe is easy to make. You’ll need ginger beer, cranberry juice, a spritz of lime, plus some fresh cranberries to garnish. Stir everything up and pour it over ice — preferably in these gorgeous gold cocktail tumblers.
