    Last year (the first year of retirement)...I did a holiday themed Happy Hour on the Thursdays of December. I ended up doing three of them.

    Appetizers Night with a signature drink called Rudolph's Tipsy Spritzer

    Feliz Navidad a Mexican dinner with a Merry Berry Holiday Punch

    Chips. Dips, and Desserts with a wine tasting of holiday wines.

    I want to do the same thing this year as its a great way to host and invite people into my home for the holidays. It generally doesn't run too late and people can come and go as its set up buffet style. I'd love to "mix it up" a bit this ideas for themes for my Happy Hours?

    Molten Lava party:
    Sort of like an ice cream bar, but with chocolate molten cakes with various toppings.

    Or use brownies instead - chocolate, blonde, mint, peanut butter etc.

    Nutty as a Fruitcake party:
    Serve fruit pizza; bite size biscuits with various fruit jellies, jams, and ham; small fruit tarts; crepes with fruit and cream cheese filling and even fruitcake, if you're brave enough! ;) And nuts of various flavors...cinnamon coated, spicy, sugared, etc.

    White Christmas-decorate with white tablecloths, white and crystal dishes, etc. Serve white food such as white cheese dip and chips, shot glasses with a white soup (maybe potato?) and whatever else Pinterest might come up with.

    Candy land- bright colorful decorations and jars of candy

    North Pole-cookies and hot chocolate (maybe spiked!) with toys as decorations and everyone wears Santa hats

    These are just some quick thoughts that need fleshing out. I'll keep thinking!
