HOLIDAY PARTY THEMES
Winter wonderland is a fun theme that incorporates a lot of white and silver accents. Think white linens adorned with fake snow, silver Christmas trees, white and silver balls, and lots of candlelight. For more of an outdoor winter wonderland incorporate pinecones, mini Christmas trees and natural elements like birch logs. For the menu create a festive dessert display with snowflake shaped cookies, white chocolate mousse cups, and a Baked Alaskan. Cocktails are a great way to carry the theme- how about a Godiva white chocolate martini or for a non-alcoholic option a white hot chocolate?
Ralph Lauren Inspired Party
A great way to get inspired is to window shop designer stores during the holidays. Ralph Lauren, a leading designer for home furnishings and clothing, is a great brand to pick up some design ideas from. Think plaids paired with classic timeless holiday accents. Colors ranging from reds and maroons, to greens and golds. One of our favorite looks is pairing a plaid tablecloth with gold candlesticks, greenery, and vases filled with cranberries in water with a floating candle. For the menu you can include classics like beef wellingtons, baked ham, green bean casserole, and potatoes gratin. Pair your entrees with timeless holiday dessert recipes like rum balls, a yule log, bread pudding, or a croquembouche- to name a few!
How fun is an old-fashioned rustic Christmas? We love the country charm look for the holidays. To create this look incorporate details like burlap ribbons, pinecones, wooden trees, rustic lanterns, and green garland. Some of our favorite rustic displays include pinecones and holiday balls displayed in glass cloches alongside lanterns with flickering lights. For dessert, our classic buche de noel cake fits perfectly within the rustic look.
Christmas Around the World
Christmas is celebrated in so many ways around the world. This is fun theme to learn about how different cultures celebrate. For the decor, you can stick with traditional holiday colors like reds, golds and greens. Within the menu create different stations reflecting holiday traditional food like Panettone bread and fish dishes for Italy, Swedish Meatballs and rice pudding for Sweden, tamales and snow ball cookies for Mexico, fish (oysters, caviar) and bûche de Noël for France, there are so many more options too! You can have stations with different entree dishes from around the world then offer a large dessert display with a dessert from each country.
Theme and decor ideas are endless for your holiday celebration. Our design experts can work with you to bring your vision to life with everything from menu selections to custom table designs.
