I'm planning on hosting a cookie baking amp decorating party with my girlfriends. I've gathered recipes that include ingredients from eggnog to candied oranges to espresso. I've also selected some of our fav wines, gourmet cheeses and fruit, and got the holiday music playlist all picked out!

I'll decorate my table with small ornaments that my guests can take as favors... That way, they can remember my party for years to come!

Loving the idea of an intimate apartment gathering with champagne cocktails and appetizers this holiday season. Small bites keep it light and fun - and the mingling going!

A fun entertaining idea that my husband and I have is to have a get-together for a holiday drink tasting. Whether it be wine, martinis or coffee its a fun way to invite friends over and celebrate the holidays in our home. Friends are encouraged to all bring their favorite holiday beverage for everyone to taste! We hope to carry this tradition on as we enjoy our first year of marriage and many more to come! :)

Limited space (NYC living) and different ages make party idea's a challenge with my family-but family is important during the holidays! So...we host a huge pajama party with Christmas movies (I don't know anyone who doesn't enjoy ELF), pop popcorn and gift each other with new PJ's. No stress, no hassle, and cozy all around. Entire family fun for all ages!

Every year at Thanksgiving we gather all our family (about 22 or so). Includes in-laws and other friends. We have a raffle after prayers and mix up who sits with who every year. This is great because everyone becomes "old friends" over the years and makes the gathering that much better....All look forward to being with the larger family that has developed.

Its all about the lighting! Change out regular bulbs for red bulbs, to create a soft glow. Then compliment the lighting with festive balloons to greet friends when they first come in. When ordering balloons, ask for the shiny ribbon instead of what they would normally use - it adds instant sparkle!

Present scavenger hunt by mailing different clues to work and home addresses via puzzle piece images on what the final gift will be which will be secretly delivered to the house of the recipient while they are away.

My family does a progressive dinner party where we have appetizers at one house, soup/salad at another, dinner at yet another and dessert at one more! We have done this for 25+ years. When my cousins and I were kids, we got presents at each house as well. Now, we just do a secret santa exchange. It's something I look forward to every year!

Feed your guests in style! I dedicate an entire table to bite-size snacks, and make sure to include a mix of fun serving trays, different vegetables to add a splash of color, and plenty of dips for all taste buds. By the end of the night, when there are just crumbs and the bar is dry, you know the party was a success.
