Holiday Decor
First, set the mood with your holiday decor. Trees, garland and twinkling lights are a good place to start, but try to find ways to personalize your decor. For example, if your home decor is the farmhouse style, add holiday cheer with natural and vintage elements.

Cocktails & Appetizers
Need a little something to put in those festive cups? This Winter Sea Breeze seems pretty fitting for the holidays here in Coastal Virginia. The recipe is easy – vodka, grapefruit juice, tonic syrup, soda water, pomegranate seeds and mint leaves for garnishing. It’s a light, refreshing cocktail that will let your guests fill up on food instead.

Party Activity
Give your guests something to do – an activity that encourages interaction and laughter. Something as simple as holiday photo props or a life-sized photo frame will get your guests mingling and giggling.
