Make it a snap
Hold a potluck. Assign a recipe to each friend. The booze, cream pies (in pan), and beignets (frozen) are easiest to transport.
Simplify the bar. Set out hot chocolate in a thermos, with nut- flavored or peppermint liqueurs so guests can serve themselves.
Cherry-pick. Choose one or two recipes (beignets should be on your list) and supplement with store-bought truffles.
Plan. Do a little each night. Each recipe can be prepared ahead and baked or set out on the day of the party.
