As the festive season knocks on the door, many of us find ourselves scrambling to throw together an instant holiday party that is both effortless and elegant. This article offers a playful guide to creating a festive atmosphere, with a focus on four key elements: cheese, Champagne, games, and instant cameras.
Embrace the Charm of Cheese
Starting the party with cheese is not just a culinary choice, but a strategic one. As Tess McNamara, head of salumi and formaggi at Eataly North America, puts it, cheese is both easy to curate and a beautiful conversation starter. Served at room temperature and perfectly paired with fruits, or the sweet tanginess of Spanish quince paste membrillo, a cheese platter presents a simple yet elegant solution to party catering. It's the kind of food that brings people together, sparking conversations and shared experiences.
Festive Fun with Games and Cameras
But what's a party without some fun and games? And what better way to capture those moments than with an instant camera? Encourage guests to get creative and immerse themselves in the holiday spirit with a wreath-building bar. Bring together crafty supplies and wreath ingredients for some DIY holiday fun. Similarly, the click-and-print magic of instant cameras offers guests a tangible memory of their festive frolics, adding a touch of nostalgia to the celebration.
