If you are doing a cocktail party plan on two and half hours. Old style cocktails are back so besides wine lets try egg nog and brandy, hot chocolate and a whiskey tasting. For food why not try a risotto bar? You can cook the risotto ahead of time and then offer different fillings: fresh mushrooms, shaved truffles, asparagus, roasted artichokes. The table needs a fresh arrangement so fill a silver vase with red ilex berries, red tulips and green hydrangea. Depending on where you live you may want someone to oversee coat check so your guests coats aren’t piled on top of each other. The time is now to get your invitations printed and out for the holidays!! Remember have fun and plan ahead!
