We think beautiful, decadent hor d’oeurves, creative cocktails, and charming presentation are the bees knees, but want to keep it simple and approachable too! Each month, we collaborate on our finest ideas here at Rodelle to give you the best, do-it-yourself gourmet ideas possible! Look forward to do-it-yourself projects, incredible recipes and party planning insights!

But we know cocktail parties can be a lot of work, so we’ve worked hard to simplify recipes without sacrificing any of the incredible taste. We created a super scrumptious menu with a bit of elegance, a dash of charm and flavors that will blow your mind! ¬†These recipes are surprisingly simple to put together and can all be prepared ahead of time! Lobster Bread Pudding Bites with Vanilla Bean Chive Sauce, Frozen Vanilla Infused Cocktails, and Caprese with Vanilla Bean Olive Oil and Vanilla Balsamic Glaze.

The Perfect Party Tip:  When planning for a cocktail party, remember that bite size portions are the BEST idea! They ensure ease for the guest and ease for you! It is amazing how many things you can bake in a mini muffin pan! From baked mac and cheese to our unbelievable Mini Lobster Bread Pudding, Mini Cookie Bites and more! Make sure to stay tuned for our Holiday Cocktail Party for more adorable bite size ideas!
