Girls night in

And it's the end of the weekend and only 10 more days until Christmas… who's ready?

This weekend I had a girls' night in with some of my friends. 
Us ladies run around everyday  making the holiday season perfect and magical for our families, our friends and everyone else. I thought it would be fun to get a few of my girlfriends together for a little appetizer party and fun. 

Everyone made an appetizer-- some two, one friend three and I organised the drinks, the dessert and the fun. But as usual, when I'm having fun I don't think of busting out the camera. Here are just a few though.

We started the night with a pomegranate ginger champagne concoction. I like my signature drinks to begin the night.

If it's one thing girls appreciate, it's the little things. And as didn't have to bust my tail cooking lots of food, I was able to focus on the all the little details. I downloaded free printables from Catch My Party. 

(These are cupcake toppers that I used as wine charms so people could write their name on the back). 

Before all the appies arrived. I also had name cards done for each dish. 

In case anyone's interested ( I always am since food is my jam), this is what we had that night.
Mushroom Crostinis with a Parmesan Cream Sauce in a Whiskey Reduction
Chicken Taco Bites

And for dessert, I did chocolate pots de creme (recipe coming tomorrow!)

Our cousins/friends Am/Mo did this veggie platter for their party last week and I totally stole the idea.

Some one was so excited with everything going on, she kept coming downstairs.

I like to do favours for the ladies too. D's cousin started this business where she makes the most amazing handmade, natural organic products. I ordered a couple handmade soaps and lip balms for each lady- She did the packaging too and the labels and everything. Cool, huh?

This was before everything….

And then my friends came and I totally forgot to take too many more pics.

We played a couple games. This one below was my favourite!

I should say though that the two ladies who didn't have any 'adult beverages' were better than the others. 

And then there were charades, I believe I was trying to do Christmas tree!

And that was that. And my friends being the awesome people that they are, stayed to help me clean up. I have so few family in Canada and I'm so grateful to have my girlfriends in my life… some new, some old, some near, some far!  This was a wonderful evening that I hope I can make an annual event.
