The holiday season is packed with parties, so what's a gal to do to ensure hers stands out from the rest? In a word: sparkle! Throw a soiree that outshines all others with these fun and fabulous entertaining tips that bling on the glam for memorable impact.
Keep Color Schemes Simple and Tasteful
You don’t need to saturate your surroundings with red and green or blue and white just because it's a holiday celebration. 'Tis also the season to shimmer and shine — let those effects take center stage by minimizing your use of busy patterns and garish color combinations.

Set a Sweet and Sparkling Table
Instead of a tablecloth, cover tables with glittery poster board or metallic wrapping paper cut to fit. Create a twinkly centerpiece that's good enough to eat by filling clear vases or jars in various sizes with silver- or gold-foil-wrapped chocolates.

Glisten While You Glow
Everything looks better by candlelight, so dim the overheads, turn off the lamps, and fill your party space with votives, tapers, tea lights, and strings of twinkly white bulbs. For added spark, coat candleholders in clear craft glue, and then roll in glitter.

Serve a Signature Drink
Try a Sparkle-tini! You'll need two ounces Hpnotiq liqueur, two ounces premium raspberry vodka, a splash of club soda, and a grenadine sinker. Shake, and serve in a martini glass.

Dress Up Your Tidings
DIY letters that share season's greetings while enhancing your party decor. For each individual letter, use your computer to choose a font and size. Print it, cut it out, and trace it onto a mat board. Cut out the letter form using a craft knife, coat with spray adhesive, and cover with glitter.
String letters together to make a custom garland, tape them to a door or wall, or lay them flat on the table to convey a sparkling message.
