Does the title of this post excite you? Because it excites me! I like entertaining. I like it a lot. But it stresses me out! Especially if I have to cook. So I’ve made at least one part of the entertaining cooking-less! Appetizers shouldn’t be stressful, right?

This week for the last week of our Modern Holiday Home series, we’re partnering with President’s Choice and talking about their Insiders Collection

I set the table simply and used my collection of mismatched vintage blue and white plates – not traditional Christmas colours, but I can’t help it. I love these plates!

The wine glasses we got for our wedding, and the other glasses are also vintage, so this table setting is a little special that way.

Now let’s talk about the food! I used two types of cheddar (because I just love me some cheddar): the PC® Aged 5 Years Canadian Cheddar Cheese andPC® Smoke Flavoured Cheddar Cheese. Amongst the cheese, the PC® Splendido® Antipasto Misto, some cheesy baguette crisps and fresh blueberries.

I set the charcuterie plates on either side of the table so everyone has access, and in the centre? Well, that’s the piece de resistance, my friends: the PC® Shrimp & Scallops au Gratin, which I set on smaller plates because the dishes are very hot when coming right out of the oven.

You may also recognize the spray painted flatware I just shared a couple of weeks ago. I swear, they’re just perfect in any setting, and all the mismatched things just add to the informal feel of this whole setup, while still making it all a little fancy, ya know?

Now just don’t ask me not to start eating before everyone gets here. Because this cheese, you guys… ohhhh this cheese!

Now, remember to go check out the 4 other bloggers who have put together some goodies using the PC Insiders Collection, and get inspired to host a little something this season!
