Super yummy food? Check. Festive decor? Got it. All your best friends? You bet. But a party’s not really happening until you bump the tunes.
A massive ball of cheese on the table makes a statement: Welcome to our party! Cheese balls are fun, tasty, lovably retro and easy to make in advance. So go ahead and choose your own cheese-ball adventure. Just don't forget the crackers.
Mary and Dylan host a pajama party brunch! On the menu is French toast, a frittata bar and a hash bash. This "snacktivity" (make-your-own-food activity) features hash browns and all the fixin's. Then guests build their own bash inside a mason jar. Shake, shake and eat!
Once the food is all set, it's time for the cocktails. First, Mary and Dylan prepare fruit-and-herb-infused waters, a green revival smoothie as well as an impressive Bloody Mary bar. Then, Mary shows you how to make mini flower bouquets for each guest to take home.
This party is about ease so you can actually have fun with your friends! Mary shows Dylan her playful (and addictive) way to fancy up store-bought pigs in a blanket in another "snacktivity" that she puts out with yummy dipping sauces, from guacamole and salsa to pesto and mustard. You might be surprised by the combo you like best. Then Dylan and Mary make Mary's most requested app: fancy, mini grilled cheese sandwiches with truffle honey. Yum!
