How to host the ultimate festive get together!

Party season has arrived! Get ready to put the decorations up, turn the Christmas tunes on and pour yourself a glass of your favourite festive tipple… it’s time to host the ultimate festive get together!

Whether you prefer a small soirée or are looking to kick Christmas off with a big bang, we’ve got all the tips and tricks to help make your December celebration one to remember!

Spruce up your space!

Depending on the size of your guest list, your event could be spread out throughout your home, or it might just be limited to one room. However big or small you intend it to be – your space needs to be well presented; comfy and cosy but still providing all the sparkle and magic that comes with the Christmas season!

You want your guests to feel relaxed and at home to enable them to fully enjoy their night, so make sure to incorporate some homely décor additions to give your space that extra special touch. To accommodate all your guests without a total furniture revamp, why not grab some scatter cushions and footstools for extra seating? With a variety of colours and styles on offer here at the zofa workshop – if you get in touch with a wish list, I’m sure our Christmas elves would be able to help you find your perfect match!

Add some festive features

Christmas caters to all the senses, from the warming scents of cinnamon and spice, and crackling log fires – to the glitz and glamour of the seasonal decorations. Whether you choose to opt for an all-out Christmas renovation, or prefer to go for something a little more minimalist – add a sprinkle of Christmas décor to your home for your guests to enjoy this party season.

Prep the festive tipples and tasty nibbles

If the drinks are flowing – there’ll be a good time going! The last thing you want to have to worry about part way through your get together is running out of refreshments, so make sure to overestimate on every level. Top up on social snacks and easy to eat nibbles if you’re opting for a less formal occasion, and why not mix and match sweet and savoury to tickle everyone’s taste buds?

Be the host with most

It’s your party, so chances are – your guests will be coming to see you! Don’t spread yourself too thin on the day; prep as much in advance as you can and be open to accepting the offer of an extra pair of hands here and there if needs be! Grab yourself a drink, turn the carols up and have a dance with your friends – Christmas only comes around once a year, and there’ll always be time to tidy up in the morning!

Christmas is the perfect excuse for any celebration, and after all, ‘tis the season to be jolly! So, light the fire, get the fairy lights twinkling and spread the festive cheer amongst your friends and family by soaking up our tips and tricks to host the ultimate festive get together!
