’Tis the season to throw a classy holiday party for your friends and family. We’ve created a detailed guide so you can host a festive fete filled with good cheer.

Classy Holiday Party Decorations 

Cover the main table with a white tablecloth, then spruce it up with a gold sequin table runner. Set out a matching gold lacquer tray and gold metal cheese knife set for snacks. A vase of white roses adds a sophisticated touch. Hang a wreath (like this bay laurel wreath) center stage behind your table and place gold-accented pinwheels around it to complete the backdrop.

Classy Holiday Party DIY 

Toast to the holidays with your nearest and dearest! To make our easy DIY gold-stemmed Champagne glasses, purchase easy-assembly Champagne glasses, like these clear, plastic ones, and remove the bases. Then, take the bases outside and spray them with gold spray paint (lay newspaper down to prevent staining the ground with paint). Let the bases dry for 20 to 30 minutes, then reattach them to your glasses. Cheers!
