Anna writes: “I need some help with our first Christmas Party, not just recipes, because I don’t know much about cooking but there is no way we can afford a caterer. 30 people are coming to our small apartment, and I need simple ways that I can do a nice party. Thanks!“

Ask-a-Caterer Replies: Hello Anna - We’ll help make your first Christmas Party a success - the first of many, you’ll see!

Check out our Christmas Section on the site:

Holiday Food Ideas has several ideas that will work nicely. Chicken Fingers and Bacon Kielbasa Wraps are both easy to make ahead and serve. And really good!

No matter what hot foods you serve, you want to use a Food Warmer or two to keep your hot foods hot. Read all about how they work and where to get them.

For 30+ more Appetizers that are easy to make ahead and keep warm, read our Appetizer section.

Don’t forget our Snacks , including Crescent Pizza - which is just fabulous, easy and cheap!

And how about some Salads ? More and more, people enjoy the quality, color and healthfulness. Chef Salad is way easy and loved by everyone - something in there for every taste.

These are some very easy Desserts - and one of the easiest is the Apple Crisp - which you can get all prepped up the day before, and bake it when your guests are starting to arrive. The aroma when baking is out of this world!

Here you’ll find dozens of Chocolate Desserts , but check out the Chocolate Covered Fruit Skewers . This is too good, very simple to have all ready in the fridge.

One thing we’ve learned is that presentation is just as important as the food itself. Spend some time with your decorations and buffet table, thinking about colors and the beauty of the food itself. No wonder they’re called “food stylists.”
