Bring your family together with a fun Christmas party

With the holidays just around the corner, couples across the country are undoubtedly trying to determine one thing – whose family should you visit? Instead of having to choose between households, why not host a Christmas party and invite your relatives to come to you?

A family fiesta is a great way to celebrate the holidays, and bringing everyone together will definitely maximize the fun. However, plan carefully to ensure that the party goes off without a hitch.

Stock your fridge with food and beverages appropriate for relatives of all ages – you'll want wine and hors d'oeuvres to offer the adults as well as snacks that appeal to youngsters, like juice and cookies.

Because the holidays are a time for guiltless indulgence, make sure to have delicious confections readily available. Bowls of red and green Christmas candy are festive ways to satisfy any relative's seasonal sweet tooth.

Fill your house with the holiday spirit by playing carols and hanging decorations. Items that complement your Christmas tree will create a cohesive decor that's both festive and beautiful.
