After five years of having this party you would think I would have the timing down perfectly but that is not the case. If you are also in need of some hostess fine tuning, check out the holiday party checklist/timeline below. Next year I am hoping to be one glass of champagne in by the time my first guest arrives :).
|Cheers the holidays in Italian, French, Chinese, English, German and Japanese - LOVE these!|
|Dainty, Chic & Unique - they also help guests remember their glass :)|
|Lovely wintery West Elm flutes - find them in stores as they seem to be sold out online.|
|I have a set of these and ADORE them! This was the flute I was holding all night this year at my party. Crate & Barrel|
|Ultra modern Verve flute from Crate & Barrel|
|The holiday bar was stocked with this flute this year since party goers were stylishly sipping outdoors. 6 pack for $4.99 at Ikea.|
|For those who want to pump up of the flute volume with some color.|
|Elegant and Modern flute from All Modern|
Finally, the most organized and thorough holiday party checklist I could find is of course provided by Martha Stewart herself. Any hostess with the mostess will enjoy this list :). Also check out her holiday season timeline.
