Food for your Fête: Goat Cheese Tarts with Leeks & Apricot Preserves

Tasty tarts.Where there are little kids, their parents are sure to follow. What does this mean for your pip-squeak’s party? Be sure to have some food options that will appeal to the grown-up palate.

These tarts are the perfect mix of elegance and taste. The sweetness of the apricot preserves, paired with the savory goat cheese and sauteed leeks and the flaky crust, will have your big-kid guests begging for the recipe. Not to mention, you can use just about any round-ish shaped cookie cutter (we used a flower cookie cutter here) to help tie-in your party’s theme.

We found the recipe here: http://www.csmonitor.com/The-Culture/Food/Stir-It-Up/2011/0511/Goat-cheese-tarts-with-leeks-and-apricot-preserves

Our tips: You want to serve these hot or warm at the least; have them prepped on your baking pans and stick ’em in the fridge until you’re ready to bake them, that way you can serve them to guests nice n’ toasty. And make more than you think you need; they will get devoured and fast!

A December Yule Remember

The holidays are here and we’d love to make some magic happen at your festivities this year.

We have our original faerie characters, “Mistletoe and Sugarplum”, a truly dynamic duo of holiday hilarity. You won’t find these characters anywhere else (we made these costumes and created the characters ourselves).

These feisty faeries are great for silly little girls and boys who love dancing, magic, singing, and face-painting.

We also have Christmas Elves, Santa, and Mrs. Claus. Plus, we have Snowman, Gingerbread, Reindeer, and Toy Soldier mascots!

And remember, children’s entertainment need not be limited to family events; we cater to corporate, office, and in-store parties, too. In fact, it might be more important to have entertainment for the little boys and girls at work celebrations: our characters can help make sure they’re having a nice time, enjoying lots of fun kid-friendly activities while the grown-ups have a good time, too.

Check out our December deals over on Facebook, and thanks for considering Papillons Entertainment for this year’s holiday party!
