Its Christmas party season and if you haven't been to one already, you most likely have one coming.
If you are throwing a party and want to avoid the slightly played out "tacky sweater" theme, just go the traditional route and stay classy with this quick party plan.
Recipe for the classy Christmas party:
- One vintage cocktail and/or a classic bowl of punch, and don't forget to use the good glasses.
- Some not-too-Christmas-y tunes.
- Add friends and stir.
If you need gifts for those at your party or for family members; there is still time to buy those gifts online for Christmas delivery.
My list, the "adventurous guys gift list", can be found here.
Vintage cocktail recipes can be found here and books can be found here and here.
Second - The Travel:
New York is done up really well at Christmas! This is my second time there and with the addition of all the Christmas decorations on the stores and hotels including the famous Rockefeller Christmas Tree it was like a different city. I definitely recommend going in December if you have a choice and can stand the cold. Take a scarf though, you will need it.
