I love trying out whatever's in the odd and ends cheese bin at Whole Foods. We've sampled some things we might not have ever tried otherwise. A recent favorite is a goat gouda. Yum!

Anytime I have a party coming up, whether hosting or attending, I know that all I have to do is hit up the wine and cheese sections of my local Whole Foods. Everyone loves cheese! They even have alternatives for my vegan friends..and the friendly staff always know the best combinations so I look so smart when I show up with the perfectly paired snacks and beverages. I could probably live in the cheese section if they allowed it, but then I would miss the parties :)

Best summer party dish is homemade organic salad with corn, avocado, cherry tomatoes, green onion, black beans, oil, and pepper. Best winter dish is homemade organic pumpkin hummus, always a hit!

No party can be complete without my must-haves: 1) Handful of close friends 2)Prosciutto wrapped jalapenos stuffed w/ goat cheese 3) All-or-nothing guacamole w/ pomegranate seeds 4) Mimosas w/ champagne and blood orange juice 5) Bruschetta w/ pork belly and quail eggs. With these things combined, any event is a success! I could definitely use some extra ingredients though. Perhaps some olives, crackers and vinegar. ;)

Get outside. It's summer. Cool drink concoctions keep the heat at bay. Iced fresh, organic fruit (even mangos, papayas and guava) make great natural snacks for keeping cronies cool and happy. Fire up the grill. Decorate festively and take it into the evening when temps drop a little. I always play lawn games with fresh sangria to keep the competition at bay. Kids love being outside, too. Win-win.

I love to grill tilapia for fish tacos. Add heirloom tomato salsa, freshly made tortilla chips, guacamole, Mexican street corn, black beans and rice, and we've got a great party! Oh, and don't forget the sangria! Oh man, this is making me hungry!

We are a big party/ get-together kind of family and I would have to say that appetizers and finger foods are a must at any party! Cheese and crackers, mini quiches, spinach dips, or an olive tray is perfect and easy to throw together for last minute partys and cookouts! And having fresh produce is always a good thing to keep on hand as well- whether it's fruit or veggies cut it up and serve! Everyone love fresh fruit or veggies and your guests will appreciate you serving them something healthy! Thanks for reading!

At parties, I love to have a lot of different snacks stationed at different areas in my home. There's always different kinds of breads, with extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, olives, sun dried tomatoes, artichokes, etc. and different sea salts and pepper. Cheese is great for parties. I love using the Water Wheel Fine Wafer Crackers, with 5 different cheeses, along with grapes and/or fresh figs. I make mini chocolate chip cookies and those are a hit with the little and big kids. We have kettle and pita chips with hummus and my husband's signature eggplant and bean dip. Need some sort of deli meat, such as prosciutto and salamis, and depending what I'm in the mood for, I'll serve fresh vegetables or roasted vegetables. Oh and of course, fresh fruit, cut up beautifully. :)

Parties have to include dips and pittas, home made chicken nuggets (made by coating with polenta and baking in the oven) and french stick with real butter!

The guests are the most important part of the party, but great food can't hurt. I love a good spread of cheeses, fruits, vegetables, foods that can be eaten easily with one hand and one or two bites. Good wine and stemware from which to drink it is also a must.

My favorite party time snacks are "any-Ranch vehicle". Whether it is a chip, pretzel, carrot, cauliflower, french fry, or my finger, it is all just a vehicle for Ranch.

If only every store could be more like whole foods! Selection, customer service, and sustainable ethics cannot be beat. Definitely the #1 party favor spot!

I love entertaining. I like serving hummus and fresh cut peppers and cucumbers. I also love having an assortment of local cheese. Now I want to have a party!

my go to party snack is seven layer dip. it can be made very healthy and is easy to make and can be stored very easily as well. it is always a great party hit and most of the time i don't have any leftovers. what makes my party excellent is the food, the people, the conversation, and the music.

Parties are all about friends. Theme? Doesn't matter. Good friends, good drinks, and good food make me happy!

A good party has to have great wine selection (anything from Whole Foods) and great, healthful food. I'm a fan of any raw vegetable cut into bite size pieces with some homemade dip such as a hummus or black bean concoction!
