Whether it’s a sit-down dinner or casual cocktail party, throwing a Christmas soirée needn’t be stressful. Here are four tips to keep in mind when creating the perfect party, so you can enjoy it as much as your guests.
It’s all in the preparation
From asking about allergies to creating a seating plan, the secret of all successful parties is in the preparation. Don’t try out a new recipe that requires you spending hours in the kitchen, instead of entertaining your guests – rather, opt for canapés you’ve already mastered, and perhaps some that can be prepped a day or two in advance.
Serve a festive cocktail or two
Greet your guests with a glass of festive cheer that is unique to your dinner party. Why not add a twist to tradition with a Mulled Wine Cocktail that can be made well in advance and can be served hot or chilled.
Create the mood
Before your guests arrive, fill your room with the inviting scent of cinnamon and orange from our Winter Candle to truly encapsulate Christmas cheer.
Add elegance and sophistication to your party with candlelight by displaying two or three pillar candles in our Tall Glass Candle Holders, either down the length of the table, if you’re having a sit-down meal, or clustered in corners and on side tables to give your room an ambient glow.
