As the holiday season is upon us, time spent with friends and family seems more precious. If you need an excuse to create a get together, why not host a card party? What is a a better way to spend time with friends and family, have some fun, and still have the opportunity to catch up and chat? To create a great get together you need to have the right accoutrements. A successful party includes a number of things, including great food and snacks with fun serving ideas, some tasty libations readily at hand, and a great group of people. We can’t help you find the great people, but we sure can make some suggestions for the snacks and libations!
Pretzels, peanuts, Chex Mix (who knew there were so many tasty recipes for different versions of Chex Mix?!) are great choices to provide for snacks at a card party. Or if you are feeling adventurous – wasabi peas or your own mix of spiced nuts are unique snacks. These snacks would fit well in the Card Suit Snack Dishes. Sold individually or as a set of four, you can place these all around the room with different offerings.
If you consider yourself the Ace of card playing, (as my husband will say, that does NOT describe me!), then these Ace Suit Snack Dishes are a great choice. With a large flat surface they could substitute for a sandwich plate if you are providing food of more substance.
A party is not complete without your beverage selection. What better way to have it all in hand than with this Mini- Bar Case? If wine is your drink of choice, then make sure you protect the playing surface with a Wine Bottle Coaster.
And don’t let a lack of card playing knowledge keep you from learning a new game. Popular here in Ohio is the game Euchre, which is played at my in-laws Thanksgiving celebration every year. I still haven’t quite picked up the game but now that I found these Euchre instructions, maybe I’ll win a hand at next years gathering! A favorite in my family is Rummy. It’s been a while since we’ve played so I have refreshed my knowledge of the rules with Rummy instructions that I found online. My boy’s want to learn how to play Hearts, which is one I’ve not yet tried. So we will go over these Hearts instructions to learn a new game we can play as a family.
So what ever your game of choice is, the best part of it all is being able to be with friends and family and enjoy time spent together!
