This past weekend, Garrett and I had a little Christmas Housewarming Party. We invited over just a handful of friends who live nearby. I would have loved to invite more people, but our apartment is just too tiny.
For food, I stuck to easy finger foods – veggies, chips, pretzels, popcorn, holiday candies, Hot Artichoke Dip with toasted tortilla wedges.
Using a similar method to the Easy Mini Pizza Bites Appetizers, I made a spinach pizza wreath, which was eaten up in no time!
I cut the center out with a knife before I baked it and then cut it into small slices when it came out. The bow is made from a red pepper.
Somehow we managed to pack everyone into the living room and we all sat down to watched pics from the wedding last month. It was a fun way to catch up post-wedding and reminisce about how fun it was.
We received many lovely gifts including scotch, candles, wine…and something to put the wine in…
We also received some lovely Christmas planters and now our house is brimming with beautiful flowers. Its so lovely to come home from work and find the house all festive.
After many hours of merriment, some of us were ready for bed. I just love that these two fell asleep together (with Whiskey no less) by the Christmas Tree. Considering how loud we all were that night (sorry to my neighbours!), I have no idea how they could crash so easily.

A house-warming party is a great ice-breaker, don’t you think? It’s best to celebrate with your new neighbors in your new house. It looks great. There seems to be no shortage of tasty food to celebrate your new home. Congrats on that!
