With the holidays just around the corner, it’s time to start planning festivities. With hundreds of ideas and suggestions regarding holiday planning, organizing your plans can be a bit overwhelming. Fortunately, Pinterest not only provides inspiration for holiday entertaining, but also helps you keep your ideas organized. Billed as an “online pinboard,” the site allows users to collect, or “pin,” ideas from anywhere on the Internet.
Visit Hickory Farms on Pinterest and follow our boards to stay up-to-date on seasonal entertaining, gift ideas and more. You’ll find ideas for everything from holiday gift baskets and recipes to party inspiration and stocking stuffers. Here are a few of our favorite fall entertaining ideas for your next party.
Pasta salad is a great choice for holiday parties because it still tastes great at room temperature. To make a tried-and-true dish like pasta salad feel extra special, dress it up with the rich flavors of beef Summer Sausage and one of our delicious gourmet cheeses, like our Jalapeno and Cheddar Blend or Smoked Gouda.
Nothing says fall like the classic combination of orchard fruits and cinnamon, so we love this idea for Warm Pear with Cinnamon Ricotta. As a bonus – it’s a healthy dessert that still tastes indulgent!
The “Apple Pie Apple” recipe also looks delicious, and the creative presentation is sure to impress your guests. For best results, use high quality fruit, such as the Crown Comice Pears and Fuji Apples in our fruit baskets.
For last-minute celebrations or impromptu guests, it’s a good idea to have easy, delicious foods on standby. Our gourmet gift baskets are the perfect supplement when creating a last-minute holiday party menu. A selection of slice gourmet sausage and cheese with some specialty crackers and gourmet mustard makes a great spread that your guests will love. Add some gourmet nuts for a bit of crunch and one of our candy gift baskets or sweets and you’ve got an instant party!
