This weekend Bry and I had our first big housewarming party. Given we are in the holiday season, we kept it festive and went with a fondue and Christmas sweater theme. It was a major hit and hilarious to see people’s get ups as they walked into our apartment. Bry has always had a vision of having a fondue party (His family has a unique affinity to fondue… which I don’t hate.) and it was great to see it in action. Three fondue pots, 2 buckets of hotty toddies and a keg later… well I would say it was a success. Here are some highlights from the night (apologies for the terrible photos)!
We served chips, guacamole and salsa, red and green M&Ms, homemade chocolate chip cookies and of course, fondue with baguette pieces, apples and pepperoni for dipping. For drinks we made a bucket of hot toddy which was cider and whiskey (something Bry is becoming infamous for…) and a keg of PBR (keepin’ is classy). Everyone was so generous and brought bottle upon bottle of wine, which we didn’t really get around to drinking… probably for the better. One friend even brought homemade egg nog, which I don’t think I have ever had and wow, is it good! I must say, much better than that bottled nonsense!
As the soiree concluded and people started dispersing, the rest of us (only the strong survive!) headed to a local karaoke bar which ended the evening on quite an entertaining note. I have videos to prove it (sorry guys)…
We couldn’t have asked for a better night or group of people to break bread, eat fondue, drink cider, celebrate a BFFs birthday, admire our Christmas tree, get chatty and embrace our new home with! Hope everyone is having a merry holiday season and I would highly recommend the fondue party idea! There’s nothing like cheese and good friends!
