How to Host the Perfect Christmas Get-Together

How to Host the Perfect Christmas Get-Together

Christmas is about connecting with loved ones and spreading festive cheer. Make your celebrations extra special this year using these tips for hosting an enviable get-together.

Master Tablescaping

Set the tone for a festive feast with artful tablescaping. Layer linens, dishes, and decor in a cohesive theme. True Linen, a UK brand, provides European stonewashed linen for a relaxed yet elegant touch. For Scandinavian inspiration, explore Choice of Scandinavia's tableware, combining rustic and refined elements, or elevate your table with handcrafted contemporary designs from We Love Seasons. Uncover the secrets of tablescaping at The Spirit of Christmas Fair's exclusive workshop with Callie Punchard, taking place in the breathtaking Olympia, London, at 10:30 am on 03 November 2023.

Festive Themed Cocktails

Delight your guests with signature cocktails that complement your celebration's theme. Explore recipes for winter-inspired drinks such as peppermint martinis, spiced cider, or cranberry Moscow mules. Or if you prefer to spend less time behind the bar and more time socialising, opt for pre-made classics from reputable brands NIO Cocktails and Moore House Cocktail Company.

Curate a Festive Playlist

Set the mood with a handpicked festive soundtrack. Include classic carols, nostalgic instrumental numbers, and fun seasonal pop songs. Ask guests to share their Christmas favourites for a crowd-pleasing mix. Keep the volume lively but low enough for mingling. Make your playlist accessible on your phone or a speaker to easily adjust throughout your gathering.

Traditional Dishes For All

In curating your Christmas menu, be intentional about sourcing local ingredients to ensure each dish is infused with delightful seasonal flavours. Accommodate diverse dietary preferences with carefully selected vegetarian and gluten-free options. Enhance the dining experience by setting up buffet stations, allowing guests to serve themselves with ease. Lastly, accentuate the entire culinary journey with a stylish tablescape, transforming your feast into a visual masterpiece. Visit Proware, an exhibitor at The Spirit of Christmas Fair, showcasing beautiful and professional quality cookware designed to last a lifetime.

Send Unique Invitations

Handwritten invites add a personal touch. Whether you browse for festive cards or create your own, unique and handcrafted invites set the tone, signalling that your gathering is destined to be a memorable affair.

This festive season at the Spirit of Christmas Fair, discover the magic in the details as you focus on connections and memories. Your Christmas get-together will be an unforgettable celebration filled with joy and cherished moments.
