The holiday season is a time for warmth, celebration, and of course, flavor. Around the holidays, we usually pull out all the stops in our kitchen to make recipes that any chef would envy. Between holiday parties, gift giving, and just the festive spirit of the season, there are plenty of reasons to spice up your meal routine with unexpected or special ingredients. If you’re planning on hosting a holiday party in your home this season, there’s an easy way to incorporate some flavor without needing the help of your kitchen.
Nut baskets and towers from SuperiorNutStore.com are sure to add flavor to your next occasion. They make your table look better instantly by providing a simple but elegant centerpiece. But the best part is that these centerpieces are completely edible! Browse through our nut baskets to find varieties featuring chocolates, nuts, dried fruit, and more. With so many different nut baskets to choose from, it’ll be a breeze to find the one that best suits your holiday party. Once you’ve selected the right nut basket, put one or two in the middle of your table for sharing in between courses. It’s a lovely snack idea that’s practical and pretty!
Besides using nut baskets as centerpieces, here are some other creative ideas for incorporating nuts into your holiday celebration:
- Serve up nut favors to all of your party guests. Bag up regular nuts, chocolate covered nuts, Jordan almonds, or a nut mix and put favors at each place setting. Also makes for a unique place card idea if you attach on a pretty tag to each favor bag!
- Set up a nut bar for everyone to enjoy. Similar to a candy buffet, a nut bar involves setting out a selection of nuts in decorative bowls on a long table. Put silver scoops into each bowl and leave favor boxes or bags on the table as well so your guests can create a mixed nut blend to their liking. You can also use nut gift towers and nut baskets to complete the bar.
- Make nuts part of the décor. Nuts can be a practical but beautiful way to add softness and dimension to a tablescape or other room décor. Try putting several kinds of nuts in clear glass vases or jars.
Make nuts a part of your menu! There are plenty of holiday recipes that use nuts as a featured ingredient. Breads, muffins, stuffing, sides, main courses…you name it and there’s a nut that pairs perfectly with it.
