Holiday Virgin Recipe


I know that it’s after Christmas, but you can always save this idea for next year! As I mentioned in my previous post, every year our Christmas party invites a “holiday virgin” and we have a lot of fun with planning for this whole event! Everyone at the party has been a virgin at some point…yea, yea, I know where your mind is going, so get your head out of the gutter and get with the program, friend. The holidays are about sharing and caring!

Recipe for a Surprise Holiday Virgin


  1. Invite a friend you know who will be alone on Christmas Eve

  2. Tell them that they’re invited to dinner with a group of great people

  3. When they ask what they can bring, tell them, “Maybe some chocolates or a bottle of wine” – your choice!

  4.  Everyone at the party exchanges gifts later and has bought gifts for the virgin – but the virgin doesn’t know there are gifts involved. If the person asks, just say, “It’s just dinner!”

  5. Buy thoughtful and fun gifts for everyone to enjoy and/or bake goodies to share!


Speaking of baking, I had bought Kim Barnouin‘s “Skinny Bitch Bakery” before the holidays and made Stephane’s Orange Poppy Seed Bundt Cake. It was delicious! Everyone loved it!
