Tip #2 Feeding the Guests
There’s nothing worse than getting to a party to look around and see there’s no food. Let’s be honest, what’s Christmas without food? We’re not all Jamie Oliver and you don’t need to go overboard to impress. Food platters are great, they provide guests with a variety of food so there’s something for everyone. Not to mention it allows your guests to eat and mingle without being confined to a seat behind a table. If you live in the warmer cities you can even opt for a refreshing fruit platter!

Tip #3 Decorating At It’s Best
You’ve got your outfit sorted, you’ve got the food prepped… It’s not a Christmas party without the decorations. I know, I know, Christmas decorations can sometimes be super lame. Out with the old tacky red and green tinsel, 2016 is all about modern simplicity and natural vibes.
White baubles, flowers, bows or ornaments scattered across your tree look great against a silver or traditional green tree. The tip for this look is to not go too overboard. Live in an apartment or don’t have a lot of space? Try opting for a branch tree. These are very modern and can fit neatly on a tabletop. The best part is, you won’t be vacuuming up any pine needles!
Keep table and wall decorations to a minimum. A few candles and a plain wreath will bring in the Christmas cheer without looking too ambitious.
