For me, entertaining is fun as long as I don't drive myself crazy. I've never seen myself as the 'Martha Stewart' type (referring of course to her hostessing skills, not her insider trading conviction. Not that I do that either....). That said, there are lot of cool food treats on other blogs, and hosting a party is an excuse to flex my cooking skills and try something new.
So here's S'mores on a Stick. I found this adorable treat on this blog. What a great idea-- sharing the blogging responsibilities with five cousins! These ladies have a lot of cute entertaining/treats ideas- I was also tempted to make the Chocolate and PB Acorns, but once the idea of presenting the S'mores as a 'bouquet' was born, I knew that THIS was the fun idea to try.

Since this is the season for candy canes, I also made a variation on the recipe using crushed candy in place of the graham cracker crumbs. They looked great, and while I didn't get to eat one (*sniff*), they sure looked yummy!

What are your sources of inspiration for party hosting? Or are you a 'tried-and-true' entertainer?
