Hosting Tips

With back-to-back year-end parties ushering us into the new year, it is important to remember that parties are as much for you, as they are for the guests! Make sure you’ve got enough time to have fun with our tips:

1. Make only easy, impressive food

Beyond placing orders with your favorite restaurant in advance, we recommend placing exotic snacks like these unique, organic nuts around the house, in beautiful serving bowls.

2. Celebrate Sangria

Years of being served overly sweet “punch” at catered events have given the childhood favorite a bad name. It still is more convenient, though, than having to personally shake up cocktails for each guest. Chop some apples and oranges, tossing them into red wine (or try this detailed recipe from The Kitchn!). Pour your concoction into the Godinger Square Glass Dispenser and let your guests help themselves!

3. It’s all about the mood

Set your party up for success with warm, mood lighting. Dimmed lighting and candle centerpieces work wonders, but we also recommend scented candles with notes of Frankincense and Myrrh, or Cinnamon and Vanilla to keep the holiday spirit going!
