Host for the Holidays
December 12, 2017
It’s the season of gathering, and Emerson Ranch has the perfect spaces for entertaining. We’ve put together a few of our favorite ideas for throwing a memorable holiday party at your new home.
This year, embrace the season and set out some winter-inspired drinks for your guests. A hot chocolate and coffee bar is the perfect way to keep friends and family warm and cozy. Because guests can serve themselves, it will keep you out of the kitchen and part of the party. Plus, the kids will definitely get a kick out of it!
The perfect pairing with warm beverages is delicious comfort food. You can never go wrong with a classic, so set out some hearty pigs in blankets that are kid friendly and super easy to make. Paired with savory artichoke dip stuffed bread, these appetizers will definitely keep your guests happy before the big meal.
Now to turn your dining area into a festive scene. For an easy dining table centerpiece, start with a fancy vintage silver tray. Dressed with glowing tea lights, glitzy ornaments, fresh cedar branches and pinecones, this standout piece is sure to add a touch of elegance to your holiday party. Keep your place settings simple with an evergreen-and-ornament napkin display. Add a sprig of greenery and a petite ornament to a crisp white napkin and tie it all together with a colored ribbon.
So start planning your holiday get-together at your new home, and happy holidays from all of us here at Emerson Ranch!
