Planning a party with Canary and King

We get it, planning a party can feel intimidating—no matter the season. It’s easy to feel stuck when choosing the menu, especially with so many different diets today. But an “appetizer party” is a casual way to host, with a little bit of food for everyone.

CHEERS - Holiday Charcuterie Board Appetizers

I’ve pulled together three different appetizer platters—one meat and cheese, one veggies and fruit, and one antipasti—for you to borrow from or build on this season.

A cheese ball is a great idea for this time of year, too. You can make this Smoky Cheese Ball or this Easy Feta Cheese Ball Appetizer!

Easy entertaining tips

Here are a few basic guidelines for setting a table:

  1. Consider the guest count, and what kind of party you are hosting. Serving boards and charcuteries are a casual way to set the food out and let everyone serve themselves. Perfect for the holidays!
  2. Determine how you will serve the food, and how much food to make.
  3. Are you serving appetizers before a full meal? Or are the appetizers the main meal? This will determine how many people the platters will feed.
  4. Add styling elements that bring in texture and color. We love the black and white striped runner, with a classic black and white napkins.
  5. Get creative and bring the table to life!
