Host a Holiday Party for your girlfriends, friends, or some of your family members. Hosting and entertaining are some of my favorite things to do. I am going to show you how I host a holiday party that will wow your guests and how you too can enjoy the party.
Choose a Theme or Colors
Doing these things helps when planning the decor and look you are going for. For this party, I decided to use plaid prints & pinecones. Try using things you already have around the house. This will save you both money and time.
Every time I entertain, I like to create a Mimosa Bar. Why do you ask? Well, I am a champagne girl and I love how festive and inviting Mimosa Bars are. They work for any occasion. Plus I have a signature drink called Sunset Mimosa that I am known for. I serve it at all of my parties. You can see the recipe here.
- Start by coating the rim of the flute glasses with white Karo syrup.
- Then dip the rim of the glass into colored sugar to decorate the rim. I like using white and gold around this time of year.
- Add a couple of pieces of fresh fruit to the bottom of your flute glass.
- Next, Pour Champagne into the flute 2/3 full.
- Top off with cranberry juice.
- Use Cocktail Picks and add fresh cranberries and sprigs of Rosemary.
Using a Glass Carafe for the juice makes it easy for your guests to serve themselves. Also, having a tiered tray with fruit and snacks means your guest can grab a snack at their leisure.
Don’t these Cranberry Mimosas look so festive? I love it, and so will your guest.
Prepare Food Ahead of Time
Prepare food as much as you can ahead of time. Make easy foods your guests can enjoy while walking around and mingling. A Cheeseboard is a great item to serve at parties. I added three different styles of cheese along with some fresh fruit and crackers.

Buy Store-Bought Food
There’s nothing wrong with buying store-bought food. In this case, I bought desserts at a local bakery. I set up a dessert bar. You just can’t go wrong with dessert. Look how gorgeous they look.
Create a playlist ahead of time and play on repeat. That way you never have to think about it. Stet the volume to low so guests can talk to each other.
Now, who’s ready to host a party?! I hope this gives you some ideas for your next Holiday Party.
