I love my friends... cooking party!

I mentioned a few days ago that I was having a cooking party and it was a HUGE success!  I ended up with 9 kick ass ladies, lots of food, plenty wine, and a ton of laughs.

we started sitting around the coffee table enjoying some apps (some brought apps the rest brought wine). then we had a little wine tasting, poured a large glass of wine, divided into teams and started cooking!
I didn't get any pics of the actual process but we made this delicious pasta dish and a garden salad with homemade poppy seed dressing.

my mom provided the cutest charlie brown tree complete with decorations.

thank god for my sister or this never would have happened! 
ps I have the smallest house ever.  how this table fit so perfectly is beyond me.

the stockings were hung by the chimney with care... 

a little table prepared for apps and wine.

who doesn't love a christmas gift?!  they were mostly just cheap dollarstore ornaments but who cares a gifts a gift.  and kate got the scarf I threw in there which was perfect!
(everyone had to wear a clothespin and if you cursed you lost yours)

 annddd.. the next morning... girls are messy!!! totally worth it though!

I would recommend throwing a cooking party a thousand times over.  I mean, anyone can get together, break open some nachos and salsa and get drunk.  why not throw in a half hour of cooking together!

ever throw/been to a cooking party?
