The Christmas Party Checklist

Christmas parties are always a success when the right people are invited, but making it feel like a special occasion can certainly feel like a lot of pressure.

Here at Mahahome, we love to imagine how our products might get used and we have come up with some ideas to make sure you get the perfect Christmas party.

The Atmosphere

On a cold winter’s evening, there’s nothing better than stepping into a warm, softly-lit space. To add to the Christmas spirit, try making your own mulled wine and use clippings from your tree and garden to decorate your table. The only thing left to do is light some scented candles to make your home smell like christmas too.

The Tree

It doesn’t matter what type of Christmas party you’re hosting or where it is, a Christmas tree will add the perfect amount of romance and nostalgia to your soiree. But real trees aren’t always a good fit, not to mention all the debris they leave behind. Artificial ones are a great alternative as they last for years and they come in standard shapes and modest sizes.

The Decorations

If you don’t have the space for a tree or you’re trying to save the planet, there are so many things you can do with Christmas decorations that don’t involve hanging them on a tree. Why not turn your baubles into a festive chandelier or centrepiece?

The Party Food

When catering for a large amount of people, it’s usually best to keep things simple and keep the washing up to a minimum. So why not use disposable roasting tins and plates and some festive serviettes?

If you prefer a more rustic, contemporary look, try serving nibbles on paddle chopping boards and serving drinks and desserts in jars. This is also a great option if you don’t have the space to sit everyone down banquet-style.
