Going to or hosting a Christmas party? I have the BEST simplest cocktail recipe along with the most addicting appetizer to bring with you. Both of these are sure to leave your friends and family wondering how you came up with something SO delish!!!!!

Raspberry Delight

Here’s What You’ll need: champs

  • ½ Ounce of Chambord
  • 4 ounces of chilled champagne
  • 4 Raspberries

Start by putting the chambord in the glass. Then pour the champagne over the chambord. Top your cocktail with 4-5 raspberries. It’s that simple and so yummy!


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 (8oz.) Cream Cheese
  • 2 cups finely chopped pecans
  • ½ cup finely chopped celery
  • ¼ cup finely chopped green peppers
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoons seasoning salt

Here’s what you’ll do:

Combine cream cheese, 1 cup pecans and remaining ingredients until thoroughly blended. Shape into ball or log and roll in the remaining cup of pecans and serve with crackers.

P.S.– It’s best to use a food processor or chopper to make the items chopped as fine as possible!cheeseball

  Hi, I’m Jessie from Fashion Life! I am so excited to provide you with a look for one of your many Christmas parties this season!   I went for a more formal look and loved it.  I think this look is so elegant and would fit in anywhere, whether it’s a Christmas party at a restaurant or even at someone’s house.  I actually used a black lace dress for my top and put this long gold maxi skirt over it.  I added gold and silver accessories and a black clutch.  I think sparkly is a must for holiday parties.  I usually add sparkle through jewelry, but you can see I also added it here in my clutch and belt.  The clutch is a bit hard to see, but there are rhinestones on the clasp.
