Celebrating the holidays is especially sweet when you have a new hubby or wife to add to the mix. Thus is the case for adorable Pitch Perfect co-stars Anna Camp and Skylar Astin who, after tying the knot in September, are getting festive together this year for the first time as newlyweds.

To celebrate the family feel of this time of year, the vocally-blessed pair plan to whip up favorite dishes from their respective families.

"The food doesn’t haven’t to be complicated," says Camp on the couple's holiday hosting style. "Focus on simple, home-cooked recipes that you love. Our favorite recipes are fairly easy to make and our friends always love them."

For Astin that means his delicious proscuitto-wrapped, stuffed dates and, for Camp, her family's famous bread pudding is a seasonal must-have.
