Christmas music blaring in every waiting room, elevator, and department store can mean only one thing: The holidays are officially here and they aren't going anywhere. With holiday decorations taking over every inch of real estate, your table is no exception. With five holiday-inspired recipes, lifestyle blogger Camille Styles shows us how to make the colors pop, our mouths water, and our tables ready for holiday hosting.

burrata toast
Kick your homemade pesto recipe up a notch by trading the classic basil for fresh mint. These toasts may be small, but they are bursting with flavor… literally. In each bite, you get a pop of pomegranate, a burst of burrata, a taste of sweet from the fig, and a crunch thanks to the walnut. What better way to welcome your guests than with this festive and flavorful app?
brown butter ravioli

Store-bought pasta has come a long way. With frozen and fresh ravioli available in most markets, you can get a hint of homemade without the hassle in the kitchen. With a drizzle of the orange and sage brown butter sauce, this pasta is dressed to impress any time of year.

brussels sprouts

Bacon and Brussels sprouts: a match made in recipe heaven. We’re always looking for ways to spice up our side dishes and with dates and radishes, our search is over. Baking all the ingredients in a thin layer of chicken stock makes the flavors come to life.

plum tart

Feeling frustrated with uncooperative pie dough? Cut your concerns in half with this photo-ready plum tart recipe. Spring for store-bought dough (we won’t tell) and layer with plums, blackberries, and thyme for a fun-to-make treat.

bourbon punch

Love super-cold drinks but hate when all the ice cubes cause them to get watered down? With this recipe, you’re gonna want the ice to melt: Each cube is filled with orange and rosemary for a fresh, citrusy taste that goes perfectly with the maple bourbon punch. Garnish with a slice of orange and a stem of rosemary for serious presentation points.
