15 Christmas Party Ideas for Your Best Fête Yet
15个最好的节日圣诞晚会的想法
 


Hosting the best holiday bash on the block requires some serious entertaining chops. Prep for the merriest Christmas party with some our favorite entertaining tips. Now you just have to decide what you're going to wear...


01 OF 15
GIVE A WARM WELCOME
The decorations should always start at the front door. A cluster of jingle bells reminds visitors of a sleigh as they come and go; tie on some initial ornaments as a personalized touch.

02 OF 15
GO BIG IN THE ENTRYWAY
Red and white paper bells look bright and cheerful strung up on a bannister. (These came from a wedding supply store!)

03 OF 15
SET UP A HOT CHOCOLATE BAR
Let guests customize cups of hot cocoa with ginger candies, coconut flakes, mini marshmallows and caramel syrup. Adults can stir in dark rum or vanilla vodka with chocolate-dipped biscuit sticks and peppermint sticks.

04 OF 15
COVER THE CEILING
An intimate evening starts by building up from the tabletop and down from the ceiling, according to event designer Bryan Rafanelli. Fluffy paper snowflakes and tall candlesticks do the trick.

05 OF 15
GLAM UP THE TABLETOP
Don't rely on red and green to set the scene. Mixed metals — think silver, gold and trendy copper — feel just right for a Christmas feast.

06 OF 15
BAKE (LOTS OF) BRIE
Melty, gooey cheese is always the star of cocktail hour. Set out a fresh-from-the-oven wheel with crackers, pita chips or even sliced apples

07 OF 15
BREW COCKTAILS IN THE SLOW COOKER
Delegate bartending duties to your crockpot this year. This wintry cider adds cranberry, cinnamon and cloves for extra-festive flavor.

08 OF 15
EAT BY THE FIRE
A sit-down dinner feels way more cozy with the soundtrack of a crackling fireplace. And this way, it's easier to settle into a food coma after dessert.

09 OF 15
DRESS UP THE BAR CART
People are inevitably going to gather around the drinks station. Pretty it up with a garland, sparkly glassware and, of course, plenty of booze.

10 OF 15
COMBINE THE CENTERPIECE WITH DESSERT
Don't rush out to buy boatloads of flowers. An over-the-top cake can also be the star of the room.

11 OF 15
MAKE THE HOUSE SMELL LIKE CHRISTMAS
Please the senses by tucking pomander balls in every niche. Studded with cloves or star anise, the decorative oranges make the house smell amazing (and not like your aunt's perfume).

12 OF 15
LIGHT LOTS OF CANDLES
There's something to be said for mood lighting. Dress up the mantel with a mishmash of red and green tapers instead of generic white ones.

13 OF 15
USE FROZEN BERRIES TO KEEP DRINKS COLD
Watering down the Champagne is not cool. Thread a skewer through frozen cranberries or raspberries for a flavorful chiller.

14 OF 15
HANG A PHOTO BACKDROP
Give the people what they want: a picture-perfect background for some fun snaps. Attach gift bows to a poster board, hang a curtain of twinkle lights or tape up a sheet of patterned paper. Either way, the photos will be Instagram-worthy.

15 OF 15
SEND GUESTS HOME WITH TREATS
Friends don't let friends leave empty-handed. Meet them at the door with to-go boxes of your favorite holiday sweet, like these pumpkin whoopie pies.
