As the Holiday Party season quickly approaches, I take to Pinterest for inspirations for my appetizer buffet, bar set up + table decor. I love to match my party decor to my existing seasonal decorations so that means lots of silvers, whites + touches of tiffany blue!
I usually use my bar + buffet setups as my kick off to the rest of my party theme decor. I love the mix of rustic and glitzy glamour + whimsical ideas found around the web this season!
When building your buffet area, don’t forget to use the layering effect! Things can look a bit boring when every item is at the same level.
If you don’t own risers, try using boxes, upside down bowls, etc + cover with linens to create various heights for maximum appeal.
Below are some ideas from our own Christmas Party…
I recommend serving bit-sized, finger foods for easy consumption for your guests- especially if you’re throwing a cocktail style party where the majority of guests will be standing. I’m a sucker for anything miniature so I’ve stocked up mini serving items such as shot glasses, parfait glasses, ramekins, + silverware. You can find these items around the holidays at stores like Pier One + IKEA – or disposable ones from SmartyHadAParty!
I just fell in love with this chalkboard cheese platter idea I found on Pinterest!
By using a large rectangular platter I found last season at HomeGoods (made by Strawberry Ave), I easily recreated this project in no time! To see the tutorial, click here.
What themes do you have planned for your Christmas/Holiday soirees?!
