If you already decorate your house with festive Christmas decor — light, tree, stockings, and more — you won't need to do much for a stylish and fun holiday cocktail party look. Cover the tables with red satin runners. Place the appetizers on shiny red chargers and stack gold houndstooth napkins next to the alcohol. Choose a simple, small old-fashioned glass that works well with both egg nog and champagne punch. Fragrant wreathes and fresh poinsettias add lushness to the room. A fire in the fireplace makes the room cozy and inviting. Light candles for a glowing atmosphere. Lastly, hang mistletoe in several prominent walkways for a little extra excitement.
