Want to hold the best bash? There’s a lot to plan. A successful party stays in mind even after the last bite of dessert has been eaten and the last glass of punch; sipped. Theme is the heartbeat of the event. Choose a theme like traditional Christmas, vintage 80s or Santa’s workshop. Make a list of everything to associate with it. Invite guests by sending small personal notes and inspirational wordings.
A crisp white dinner table is always elegant and timeless. Decorations in white, silver and gold make a perfect trio. Red packs a festive punch, add ribbon accents in this hue. Poinsettia centerpiece with some seasonal touches like holly sprigs tucked into napkin rings add a touch of sophistication. Cutlery in white china rimmed with gold stands out, while jingle bells add a festive twinkle to the plates. Subtle touches are to celebrate. Cut stars and scatter them around the plates. Scatter the Christmas decorations on the table to reflect the theme created in the living room.
Food is the key part. Opt for seasonal drinks like pumpkin spice latte with whipped cream, eggnog or mint hot chocolate and pair it with candy canes. Dishes like Christmas poussin and lamb with Christmas spices make delicious festive main course dishes. Keep it freezer ready and serve with crunchy potatoes, rice and salad. Try using vodka on Christmas pudding, lights much easier and gives an impressive flame. Make your own chocolate truffles to serve with coffee. They can be made ahead of time and frozen until 30 minutes before serving.
Kick of your frosty festivities and make spirits bright. The most important rule of all – Be Happy. Christmas is not about spending enormous amount of money, but is an opportunity to come together and celebrate all the good things of life. So, just be happy.
