Holiday Recipes For Gathering with Friends and Family

‘Tis the season to eat, drink, and be merry! With the holidays approaching, our homeowners are gathering in their clubhouses and their new homes to celebrate the season with new neighbors, old friends, and family. You can definitely feel the delightfully festive atmosphere when you walk in the clubhouses! From holiday decorating parties, holiday social events, and holiday group outings, there is something for everyone to get into the holiday spirit. And what would a party or gathering be without food and drinks?   

We’ve gathered together some of our favorites for you to give them a try and show off your culinary skills and serve at your next gathering.

Festive Guacamole Appetizers:Finally, you have permission to play with your food! These homemade tree-shaped tortilla chips look adorable with guacamole, star-shaped peppers, and pretzel tree trunks. 

Cranberry Cream Cheese Spread:Sweet, creamy, and perfectly dip-able, this easy appetizer only takes 10 minutes. You’ll combine cream cheese with dried cranberries, dried apricots, and orange zest, and voila.

Holiday Cheese Ball Wreath:A classic holiday wreath… but make it food! Deliciously savory and cheesy, make sure to snap a photo of this fun and festive appetizer before everyone dives in with crackers and bread.

Turkey Sliders:Who says you can’t enjoy turkey in all its glory after Thanksgiving? Perfect to munch on, this festive finger food is made with a tasty cream cheese mixture, cranberry, and as much turkey as you want.


Reindeer Oreo Balls:They’re almost too cute to eat (but notice that we said almost)... These scrumptious no-bake oreo balls are livened up with pretzel antlers and candy eyes for the absolute sweetest treat ever. 

Gingerbread Cheesecake Dip:A dessert that you can dip into? Sign us up! This sweet and creamy mixture is the perfect party appetizer or dessert, made with all of the festive holiday flavors you know and love.

Chocolate Peppermint Brownies:Is there a better holiday pairing than chocolate and peppermint? Satisfy every taste bud with these rich and gooey brownies packed with classic candy cane pieces. 


Cranberry Mimosas: Raise your glass! These mimosas are almost as easy to make as they are to drink. Champagne mixed with tart cranberry juice and fresh cranberries makes for the perfect winter refreshment.

Baileys Coffee Slushies: What better way to start (or end!) a night than with coffee? Spruce up your favorite beverage with Baileys, vodka, and milk, and add chocolate sauce, caramel, and whipped cream as garnishes.

From all of us at Cornerstone Homes, wishing you and yours  a delicious and festive holiday season!
