Christmas time is a time of festivities, get-togethers and parties. A time when you meet friends you haven’t seen in a long time, or spend time with your family. Or a time when you get to know the people better you work with. You connect, you chat and you celebrate yourselves. For me, it’s a time of love. Okay, I don’t want to sound cheesy here, but shouldn’t Christmas time be about love to other people? Forget the presents, and forget all that stress before the big event. Reconnect! Have a cozy Christmas brunch, or a festive dinner party, or meet with your friends at the Christmas fair. Or have a special Christmas wine party and dress up a little!
A wine party isn’t a wine party without the right invitations! The best about Paperless Post’s online invitations is that you save paper and have the invitations ready in no-time! You can send them out immediately and your friends can easily RSVP them back, all without going to the post office! This golden confetti invitation has really caught my eye and would be perfect for my theme!
Imagine the style of the twenties in form of a wine party! I love how they set up the drinks with a classy mirror, and everything is kept in gold and black. Tell your friends to dress up a little!
Food & Drink
That’s the center of the wine party: The wine drinks! Of course you can serve your favourite bouquets, but I was thinking about making it more extravagant. What would Christmas be without mulled wine? You can serve a red one and a white version, and everything will smell heavenly! Or what about a Christmas sangria? I would love to try that. And for the sweet tooth: Hot chocolate with red wine.
With all this one can easily get hungry. For me the perfect companion to a good glass of your favourite is some cheese. So, what about a festive Cheese platter for your wine party? You can style it for Christmas as well!
I love to give away some small presents to my guests. The most obvious idea when planning a wine party is to give wine of course. There are so many beautiful and easy ways to wrap them! And, you can give your friends a wonderful photo Christmas card as well!
So go out and celebrate!
