When’s the last time you hosted a party for your family or friends? I used to entertain a lot at home before becoming a mother but now I can’t remember the last time I hosted a party just for the adults. It’s easy to forget about quality “me” time when you’re busy taking care of your family. I enjoy every moment with my son but it’s kind of sad when my quiet “me” time is simply a trip alone to the grocery store! Ha! I’m sure many of you can relate. To enjoy some quality time with friends, I’m planning a special spa party. It’s an opportunity to get caught up on news while relaxing at the spa and enjoying delicious food.
As part of the Chatelaine Tasters & Testers, I received a “Boursin Irresistible Treat Box” filled with tasty ingredients for planning the ultimate Boursin Appetizer Bar. This box included three coupons for Boursin, crackers, pickled beets, gourmet jams, champagne vinegar, and several serving dishes and decorations. Love what you see in the box? Stay tuned because in a couple of weeks I’ll be hosting a giveaway where two lucky readers will win “Irresistible Treat Boxes”!
Gourmet Appetizer Bar:
When planning a party, I like to sketch out my ideas as a visual brainstorming session. I want to create a warm, welcoming setting that’s perfect for a fall or winter party. For this party I’m picturing a lot of white & gold with candles and plenty of quality foods. I absolutely love Boursin cheese! I can’t wait until the party to taste it so I already brought some home to enjoy! It’s perfect for a party table and I’m planning an appetizer bar where guests can create their own Boursin canapés.
Now that my sketch is complete, I’m working on my shopping list to pull the appetizer bar together. I’ll need fresh sliced meats, baguettes, more crackers, fresh fruit and chorizo for some profiterole appetizers I’m making. I think Boursin cheese goes perfectly with just about anything so there are plenty of ways to personalize a party appetizer table. With a variety of flavours plus its unique velvety texture, I’m sure it will be a hit with all my party guests. I also love the one-of-a-kind aluminum corolla that acts like a serving dish.
My party is coming up quickly and I’m excited to show you how it all comes together. Remember to stay tuned for the “Irresistible Treat Boxes” giveaway plus party ideas in a couple of weeks!
