HOSTING A HOLIDAY PARTY: TOP ESSENTIALS!

Hello everyone,


How will you be spending this holiday season? Are you or someone you know planning on hosting a 2020 appropriate (small) party? The happiest celebrations of the whole year must continue and bring us together. It's MY FIESTA...and you're invited to it!!!🥳

Today we're going to play the music loud, get dressed-up, give our table some holiday cheer, and most importantly, don't forget to shave the mustache...hahaha🤣(just kidding). I'm just testing you to see if you're still reading!

The holidays really are the most wonderful times for sharing laughter, memories, telling stories and being close to the ones you love. Don't forget to add yourself to the list first because you're just as valuable. I highly hope this post makes you excited! More so, I hope it gives you ideas on ways to decorate your dinner table or even ideas on what to gift someone who is hosting a party. Whether you're the guest or the attendee enjoy the moment, the time, the food, the people and the tequila shots. hahaha ARRIBA, ABAJO...( I'm sure you know the rest!). SALUD!🥂


To be honest, I haven't hosted a holiday party yet, but it would be a dream because I'm a dj at heart. I can turn up the party and know plenty of good music that can make others dance. Yessss, I said it! You can book me as a dj at this number...(XXX)-XXX-XXXX. But really, I like parties and connecting with others. This fuels me up to a point where it's hard to fall asleep later! hahaha
🙊

Ok, enough about my many skills, let's get to the essentials you'll need to host your BEST party yet!
 

Before setting everything up, I would suggest having some kind of idea for the color theme of your table. What colors do you want to combine? I love red and gold together! Also, green and silver would compliment each other nicely. Choose shades that will make your guests feel the holiday spirit the minute they enter your home.

Here's the checklist of items you'll need:






Now that we have our checklist, we can focus on the details. For example, have some candles and festive ornaments or garlands at the center of the table. Turn it into a magical scene, which will bring joy and lightness to your home and everyone who's there. Then, set up the drinks, desserts and small bites. Here you can really express your creativity and love for the holidays.
🎉 

When it comes to holiday decor, I'm one who might go a bit overboard with the decorations. The way I see it; you get the holidays only once during the year, so why not really go for it?! I can imagine I would be the same if I were to host a holiday party. How about you? Are you more classy, simple or do you like to keep it busy and fun? 

Also, you can see the look I came-up with right in time for the holidays. I'm definitely going to dress-up even if I end-up spending the holidays at home this year. I'm head over heels for tops with puffy sleeves. The bigger the sleeves the happier I get! Another favorite is leather. Chic, sexy and will never go out of style, so this high-waisted skirt without a doubt had to be part of the look. Do you know what you'll be wearing? If you want me to do a last-minute party outfit ideas post, do let me know.   

Happy Holidays from me to you!!!
🎄 I hope these last few weeks of 2020 are merry and sweet for you and your loved ones!💕

  9. Is that a photograph from the salt desert? The one where you're standing on a white salt and there are mountains in the background? You do look gorgeous in that black dress. So inspiring. I love your arty photos! Great NYE basics. I'm not sure how I will celebrate NYE.

  10. What a great monochrome outfit! These are nice festive photos too, especially the table decorations! We are going to less parties this year, trying to be COVID safe even though there haven't been any cases here for 84 days. there are a couple we do want to go to though, hopefully the weather will stay nice for them this weekend - they are all outdoors :)

    Hope that you are having a nice week :)

  31. I would love to have a table adorned with ornaments and festive place settings...maybe one day! I would make it simple though by having small bits of food...like party food, rather than a big sit down meal haha. Thanks for the inspiration!
