December is here! Christmas is rapidly approaching and the countdown is in full swing.
It is time to start planning in indulging in some winter warming treats.
The aroma of Oranges, wine and peppermint candy canes make the festive holidays that even more exciting!
Family and friends are a momentous part of the Christmas period, when everyone comes together, we wish to celebrate that by throwing parties and eating an abundance of appetising food.
Here is our quintessential guide to throwing the perfect Christmas party -
Plan ahead - How many guests will be at your table? Once you have received RSVP's back you should have a clear idea of how much food you may need to buy.
Pick a range of food to suit all tastes, sweet and also savouries. While some may have a sweet tooth others may not be so keen to bite into gingerbread men or chocolate fondue! we recommend the gourmet cheese gift set for those savoury lovers! sure to tantalize the tastebuds.
While cooking, make sure you have at least enough time in advance. This will cut out some of the stress and avoid any last minute errors.
Alcohol - 'tis the season to be jolly! Whether it's party punch or champagne for your guests, find the perfect holder to store your drinks in, we recommend the copper punch bowl and/ or the copper champagne bucket for a touch of class!
When thinking of décor, set the table in a way that expresses your own unique style. Pick a statement centrepiece for the table, whether that be pinecones, crackers or something more quirky like our copper stag head available from the Flutterbyes shop, as long as you tailor your own style to your desired theme.
Music - Christmas is not Christmas without the Christmas crooners...so get a fabulously festive playlist going!
Games and entertainment - Whether you want to go old school and have a game of charades or even take to karaoke ..have some fun entertainment that all your guests will be sure to enjoy.
We hope these steps will give you a guide on how to host your own Christmas party!
