What better way to express gratitude for your friends than to throw them their very own holiday? Us elves throw each other parties all season long! It brings us great joy to be together. I want to share a few of my favorite decorations I’ve seen at gatherings that are great ways to tie in themes.

The first is a seasonal way to greet your guests by embellishing your front door as a gift! Simply make a large bow with burlap ribbon and fasten the ends like a present on either side of the door. Use a few points of blue tacky on each side; the tacky will preserve the door finish.

A fun finger-food to include in your gathering is garlic pretzels! This is a great recipe that is made ahead of time and takes only minutes to prepare!

Ingredients:

1 bag of Snyder’s “Snaps” Pretzels

⅔ cup olive oil infused with garlic

3 tablespoons ranch powder

Directions:

– Pour pretzels into a large mixing bowl

– In a small bowl whisk together olive oil and ranch powder

– Pour oil mixture over pretzels and toss to coat evenly

– Toss pretzels every 15 minutes for an hour

– Place pretzels into a large freezer bag and let sit for 24 hours

– Then serve!
