I thought that the party was going to be bigger than it actually was. People loved it, but...live and learn.

Then in that case, throw another party and you won't have to worry about having too much.

Here's another avenue you may consider...
Food As Gifts
It's the holiday season,
you said that the party guests loved your tapenade,
why not package it up all pretty like, and give a small container
to each of those who were in attendance?
Maybe add a small package of crackers or what ever it was that you served your delicious appy with..
Merry Christmas
Happy Hanukkah
Happy ST. Lucia Day (that's today btw)
Happy Advent
Happy New Year
Happy Kwanzaa

I made too much Fish Vera Cruz last night,
so I'm going to the two neighbors on either side of us
later this afternoon, with the food already heated for
their supper. The're old and won't cook for themselves, so
I do this every so often, but never so much as to make them
feel embarrassed or beholding to us to reciprocate (RAOK).

K-girl, that's a great idea. Put it in some pretty jars, cut a little skirt or piece of ribbon for the lids.

Addie, the party was at a friend's home. I do like the idea of jarring it up and giving some of it away as holiday gifts. that's tomorrows plan.

Ooh! That sounds super yummy, may have to give that one a try, always on the hunt for a 'new chicken dish' that's FOR SURE! HA!

I love photos, if you need some help with that, I'm sure that someone could help you out with that, it's pretty simple. Do you have a digital camera or a smart phone? There must be a tutorial here at DC somewhere...

Now there's an idea for a new thread. Not me. I am lousy at giving directions for anything. My idea of directions, "watch what I do, then copy it."

This should help: Forums 101 - posting, accounts, basics
