It's Christmas in July and do we have a treat for you. We are preparing our holiday menus and getting plenty of Yuletide Cheer added to our calendars for the upcoming holiday season. There are exactly 156 days left until Christmas day my friends and plenty of other reasons to celebrate in between. Holy Reindeer! In preparation for a busy season to come, we've put together our must have list to throw the perfect Holiday Party!
*Make your "Spirits" Bright*
Is there any better way to get a party started than with a cup of something cheery?! We love the idea of turning holiday favorites into the perfect cocktail for your event. Try spiking your favorite hot chocolate recipe OR better yet, make it a frozen chocolaty treat complete with several different topping options and an adorable display that will make Santa want to come to town! A traditional glass of champagne doesn't have to be boring, dress it up with a glistening gold sprinkled rim for toasting. Dress up your menu with signature items with holiday twists to give your guests and perhaps Santa's reindeer plenty of options to choose from.
*Deck the Halls with Interesting Displays*
You cannot have a holiday party without themed decor. If you really want to show off your tinsel talents, wow your guests with a beautiful display that screams it's the most wonderful time of year! We love this holiday "living room scene" displayed at one of Legacy Farm's December weddings. It was cozy and functional and perfect for this Christmas themed day.
*All I Want for Christmas is Food*
Interesting menu items are a must have for any party. For a Holiday themed event we love to take classics and turn them into fine gourmet cuisines. Dinner has begun and your guests would thoroughly enjoy a spin on the traditional Christmas ham and have a slice of Spanish ham or a Genoa Salami instead. You have to add in something sweet with your savory with options of adorable a tasty brie tart-lets or perhaps an eggnog profiteroles.
*Jingle all the Way*
Your decor is set, the displays are a hit, your food and beverage have made a statement for themselves, now all you need is some entertainment! You can't go wrong with having a DJ come out to spin all of your holiday favorites or a band that can cover all of the holiday classics. Perhaps your crowd has musical gifts of their own that keep on giving? Consider a karaoke set up that is sure to entertain everyone.
