And because it’s a special Fiesta Friday, we’ll be partying for 2 whole weeks! So you can come again and again and we’ll still be here! You should know by now, ain’t no party like Fiesta Friday ‘coz Fiesta Friday party don’t stop!

And to spread more Christmas cheer:
Honey-Orange Madeleine Santas from Judi @ cookingwithauntjuju
“These Santas are beyond cute and always irresistible for the season. Judi did a fantastic job! — Linda
“I agree with Linda; these are just so fabulously creative and oh, sooo…adorable!! I’m still looking for orange blossom water but as soon as I get it, I’m definitely making these, Christmas or not!” — Angie
Cranberry-Pomegranate-Filled Shortbread Spiral Cookies from Caroline @ Caroline’s Cooking
“How special are these cookies?! These would take a little extra care to make but look at how pretty they are! And the pomegranate and cranberry filling?! That just makes them over the top! LOVE them!” — Angie
Hot Chocolate Spoons from Janine @ The Quiet Baker
“I’m so making these! Perfect for the post-holiday party my girlfriends and I always have annually. How lucky are THEY to get these?! 😀 ” — Angie
Sunny Pie from Mila @ milkandbun
“I love the sound of everything about this pie that Mila has made – lemon in the pastry? Yum! Apricot topping? Delicious. Not to mention the creamy lemony filling. Love the cute trims to the pastry to make it look like a sun as well. Just what we need in the cold of winter!” Caroline

One day, maybe…Meanwhile merry Christmas and happy Fiesta Friday! I’ve brought a couple things to help us celebrate 🙂
That clearly should motivate you to co-host more often, haha… I LOVE those cookies! I keep thinking one day we should elevate this party to another level. Like maybe a Las Vegas meet up or something, lol! Thanks for being such a wonderful FF friend, Caroline! Have a very Merry Christmas with your family! XOXO
Aw, thank you Angie. I hope you had a great Christmas and happy new year to you! I missed the bit about it being the one post for the two weeks originally but have added a couple more today 🙂

Sheri Fox says
So exciting!!! Congrats on the big #100 Angie! I needed an excuse to swing by this love fest – it’s been too long. Those Santa cookies are too cute. I haven’t been cooking much during our big move so I brought a holiday-inspired song about our new home. Happy holidays everyone!
Thanks, Sheri! So nice of you to swing by with a song; I love songs – listening and singing them! Why I’m listening to one right now. It’s not a Christmas song but I added it to my Christmas playlist anyway, haha… So Close from the movie Enchanted. I’m a hopeless romantic! 😀

Congratulations Angie on hosting 100 of these great parties. I had no idea when you began that I would have found so much inspiration and friendship through Fiesta Friday. Merry Christmas and again, many thanks.
Thanks, Hilda! I didn’t have any idea myself, I thought we’d just have some fun and eventually people would disperse, but it turns out we’re making long-lasting connections with each other. It’s a beautiful thing! Thanks for being here for FF. You NEED to co-host soon. Let me know when’s a good time. 🙂
Pretty much any time is good for me. Just let me know when I can co-host again.
Thanks! How about January 15th?

Congratulations Angie for hosting 100 Fiesta parties. Storms have kept me in Guernsey ( sea too rough for the ferry ) so I won’t be linking up but I’m enjoying checking out the fab recipes. A very happy new year to you & yours xx
Better be safe, Sarah! You can still enjoy the Fiesta as you said. Sending you all the best wishes for a happy and healthy new year! XOXO
Happy hundredth FF Angie! You’re a host with an amazing sense of hospitality to have everyone back so many times!!! Happy New Years! 🙂 xx
But I’m sure if the tables were turned, I’d be welcome, too, by all of you. Right?! I’m usually also a pretty nice guest 😀 Just like all of you! It’s easy to be hospitable and welcoming to guests as lovely as yourself, Laurie. Happy New Year to you, too, and the fun cousin. Mustn’t forget the cousin! 🙂 🙂
