’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!
We purchased these adorable gold-foil nutcracker plates, as well as fabulous gold-foil geometric dessert plates to match. Give your guests a taste of what’s to come with our customizable food and drink menus, included in our downloadable suite of free party printables.
Classy Holiday Party Activities
To get your guests in the holiday spirit, create fun photo-ops with this gold foil fringe curtain and photo props. Attach your curtain to an empty wall using painter’s tape, and snap photos of your guests striking a pose.
Classy Holiday Party Food
For light appetizers, we put together a cheese plate and flatbread pizza. And for dessert, we displayed store-bought macarons on a white serving tray.
