On Sunday Sam and I hosted our first party. The only other time we tried to have a party our washing machine flooded the apartment 15 minutes before our guests arrived so we had to relocate the party to my parents’ house!

Everything seemed to go really well. Our guests were very kind and complimentary of the food. As far as being a hostess, next time I will work more on entertainment. For this party I put all my focus on the food and décor. Thank goodness there was a football game on to break the ice when our guests arrived. Later on we had a great time playing Catch Phrase. Overall I had a blast and cannot wait until our next party – maybe at Christmas.

I definitely wanted the menu to reflect fall flavors. Most of the recipes are from my favorite food blog, Annie’s Eats. All of the recipes turned great, although Sam and I did have to make a good many alterations to some of them. Some of the crowd favorites were the Stuffed Mushrooms, Peanut Butterfinger Mini Cheesecakes, Cinnamon-Sugar Pretzels, and Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins. I am going to add each item from the menu as individual posts because I’m still trying to figure out the formatting for posting recipes and it’s really frustrating!

Menu:

  • Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins
  • Cinnamon-Sugar Pretzels
  • Peanut Butterfinger Mini Cheesecakes
  • Molasses Cookies
  • Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing
  • Salted Pretzels
  • Fall Greens with French Vinaigrette
  • Stuffed Mushrooms
  • Cranberry Pecan Chicken Salad Sandwiches
