You can choose your signature cocktails either by the name – like a Christmas Cosmo, or Peppermint Stick, or simply choose them by colour – like Sour Appletini or Pomegranate Martini. There are plenty of cocktail recipes on the web, and also premade drinks can be found at the LCBO if you didnt want to shake or stir your own.
It’s December, the month of holiday festivities!
The days and weeks will fly by faster than those 8 little reindeer do on Christmas Eve, so we want to make sure that this holiday season you are prepared for all of your home parties, dinners and open houses.
Choosing a colour theme for your dinner party or event
You don’t have to stick to the traditional colours of green and red when it comes to decorating for Christmas – you can be as creative as you’d like!
Popular colours and themes this year are blue and silver (Winter Wonderland), gold and purple, or purple and teal (think peacocks) and even black and white (the ever popular damask).
Mix and match your two favourite colours, or pick a theme, like one of my personal favourites; Victorian and use colours like gold, pale pink and cream.
The possibilities are endless!
Take a look around in the shops for inspiration and know that you only need a few pieces of your colour choice to make a statement.
Colour accents can be displayed with:
– Place card holders
– Table setting pieces like glasses, bowls or chargers
To save money, browse your local thrift store for unique pieces for your table and mix and match different shades of your chosen colour or ask family and friends to borrow pieces from their homes for your event to be eco-friendly chic.
