However you’re planning on ringing in the new year, we’ve got everything you need to mark the occasion in style, from must-have partywear to five-star dining essentials, family games and much more. To make hosting your event an effortless affair, we’ve hand-picked our favourite party pieces to make every celebration memorable.
1. If you’re… hosting a dinner party
Creating a five-star setting is simple with our timeless tableware and a touch of magical sparkle.
Create a beautiful table setting
Simply stylish, our classic white Artisan Dinner Plates feature a subtle-speckle glaze and look extra-special when styled upon our understated slate placemats, alongside sparkle-hemmed napkins and a pretty silver decoration.
Serve something special
Our elegant Stanton Serving Set is designed and made by the award-winning experts at Robert Welch in the heart of the Cotswolds, which makes it the perfect choice for special-occasion dining. Matching our Stanton Cutlery sets, it will sit beautifully on your dining table and is ideal for serving Winter vegetables, potatoes, salads and more.
For when the clock strikes twelve
These sparkly Confetti Rockets are the ultimate party starter, so make sure you stock up. At the end of your countdown to midnight, get your guests to pull the silver cords and watch a sprinkling of glittering confetti fill the air.
What to wear
Opt for our luxurious Lace Print Silk Blouse, paired with stylish black trousers. With an exquisite drape and feel against your skin, beautiful bohemian cut and unique ombre-effect lace patter, it’s effortlessly luxe.
2. If you’re… organising a drinks party
Enjoy an evening of sophistication, fuelled by sparkling-champagne cocktails and your finest partywear with these entertaining essentials.
Make quite an entrance
To give guests a show-stopping welcome, line an array of ice-cold drinks upon our striking Rectangular Mirror Charger, so they can help themselves to what they fancy. These beautiful chargers can also be used to serve canapes later in the evening, too. Don’t forget to add a scattering of Silver Beaded Coasters on any side tables, so there’s somewhere to place glasses when the nibbles come out.
Raise a glass
A glass of sparkling champagne goes hand-in-hand with a special celebration. Serve yours in our fine Belmond Champagne Flutes, which are made from exquisitely high-quality crystal. For something that’s a little different, try making one (or two) of our mouth-watering champagne-cocktail recipes, too.
Get in the party mood
To help energise your mood and make your skin glow, use our Spa Restore Skin Brightening Body Scrub when it comes to getting ready. Our luxurious blend of nourishing jojoba and coconut oils with gently exfoliating olive-stone granules leaves skin feeling super-soft, while the rejuvenating scent of geranium, neroli and eucalyptus will revive your mood.
What to wear
One of our favourite relaxed party pieces is our Sparkle Jersey Peplum Top. Styled on our bestselling peplum tee, this piece is glamorous and comfortable in equal measure. Just wear with skinny jeans and heels.
3. If you’re… staying at home
If you’re looking forward to spending a cosy night at home with your family after the madness of hosting Christmas, make your evening feel wonderfully indulgent without any hassle:
Create cosy corners
Adding twinkling lights to your home is an easy way to make your space feel more special. We love styling our battery-powered Star Fairy Lights in glass hurricanes and placing them on side tables. As the night grows darker, adding flickering scented candles to your room will make it feel both magical and cosy.
Lounge in luxury
First, set the mood by lighting our Ultimate Indulgence Winter Candle. With 130-hours burn time, it will fill the air with its spicy, comforting blend of cinnamon, clove and orange notes all-night long. Then simply enjoy some well-deserved relaxation by curling up on your favourite sofa, or beanbag, watching a feel-good film with the family.
Find time for games:
A night in with the family wouldn’t be the same without a round of party games. Choose between our movie-buff quiz, pop-music quiz, or charades games for hours of entertainment.
What to wear
Treat yourself to our sumptuous Silk Joggers. Made from sandwashed silk crepe-de-chine and featuring a drawstring waistband for the ultimate in comfort, they are the most exquisite low-key luxury. Style yours with a pure cotton t-shirt, then sit back and relax.
