5 Tips To Host The Perfect Christmas Soirée

This post is about some of my top loves 1. Christmas 2. Fizz and 3. Food, more precisely Christmas canapés. So at the weekend I hosted a little Christmas soirée and I thought I would share some details on how to throw one hell of a party. 
5 Tips To Host The Perfect Christmas Soirée
I wanted the party / soiree if you want to sound fancy to be quite simple (my house is quite small) with the tree up, Christmas canapés, festive fizz (maybe a cocktail thrown for good luck) and some party games, maybe ending up with another watch of Elf or sing-along with Frozen. 

I really wanted to host a Christmas gathering last year but as we had just moved in, it didn’t really work out. Christmas is the perfect time to throw a party but you need to be quick with invites as everyone’s diaries fill up fast! As everyone has lots of events to attend, why not arrange a drinks party in your own home, catching up with friends and family over a glass of festive fizz, such as Mionetto, with Christmas tunes playing in the background and an array of party food and Christmas canapés from M&S.

Anyway, hopefully this blog post will give you a little inspiration if you are planning your own PARTY 
5 Tips To Host The Perfect Christmas Soirée
1.       Décor: The Christmas tree is up and festive decorations are littering the entire house, except the front! The neighbours must think I am boring as their house looks like a spaceship…but little do they know when you step in the front door it’s like Santa’s grotto! The decorations are from around 3 years of collecting bits and pieces from anywhere and everywhere. I always have an annual trip to Liberty London to pick up a few more white glass baubles that always look similar to all the ones I brought the year before, but I just can’t help myself.

I also needed to carry the Christmas theme through to the kitchen and as this wasn’t a swanky all white and marble party, for a bit of fun I got these amazing Christmas cups with Santa and Rudolph on the front, mixed with a few festive gold straws. Bonus, they are paper so no washing up!

One item I HAVE to highlight are these cute stockings that store cutlery usually if you are having an actual meal but I just couldn’t resist.

2.       Drink: Mionetto was the sparkling of choice for this party. Made in Valdobbiadene in the heart of the prosecco region in Northern Italy, Mionetto tastes of Golden Delicious apples with aromatic notes of honey, black liquorice and acacia blossom. For a simple yet sophisticated serve simply pour some Mionetto into a chilled flute and add some hibiscus flowers, but if you’re hosting a Christmas party, why not add some prosecco glitter to give your fizz a fun festive twist.

3.       Food:  Again with food I kept it simple and easy. I just went to Marks and Spencer’s Food and got a whole lot of Christmas canapés with posh crisps with edible stars, pigs in blankets, Hog Roast on mini crackling plates, a big box of celebrations and After Eight mints just to name a few.

4.    Entertainment: Pop a Christmas playlist on Spotify and get the party games started. Some we played are Pass the Pud (like Pass the Bomb but with a Christmas pudding) and Gutterhead, similar to Cards Against Humanity crossed with Pictionary.

I would love to know if you are hosting any Christmas parties this December and what you are doing?
