My food tour called Kensington Festive Foodies Roots inspired me to throw a multi-cultural holiday party a few times, embracing ALL the Festivals of Lights - Diwali, Channukah, Winter Solstice, Eid, Christmas and Kawanzaa.
Some of the Decorations:
* Diwali lamp made of brown clay and beautifully hand-painted
*A mini Christmas tree with mini chocolate balls & candy canes, and cooking utensils! Strewn around the base of the tree: chocolate liquor for the adults!
* Lots of Ikeas tea candles lit up all over the party room
* Menorah with all 9 candles lit up
* A Kwanzaa card depicting the beautiful 7 candles lit up
Food & Drinks:
Made it potluck and I asked guests to bring something from their childhood they would love to share! Given the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all my wonderful friends, we had a multi-cultural holiday bounty! We sipped Mexican cider, while noshing on Columbian donuts, Jamaican Christmas Cake, Persian cookies and more...
So what are you doing this holiday season?
