Themed parties are so in, so why not have an Old Fashioned Christmas and add a little spice to the holiday with a Bloody Mary Brunch?! Show your guests how you spice up the party, even when it’s cold outside.
* Spice up your Bloody Mary! – Nothing is more appealing in the morning on a cold day than the spicy tomato flavor of a Bloody Mary as a brunch cocktail (or hangover cure). So why not make it EVEN better and add some extra kick to it?! Make it as spicy or mild as you want, garnish it and make it your own. Don’t be boring and use the typical celery stalk. Be creative and try pickled asparagus, pickled green beans, or hand stuff olives with jalapeños, onions, and even cheese!
* Get personal – Place card holders should be fun and festive enough to glam up the table while also letting guests know where they will be sitting (think individual snowflakes, ornaments or even mini evergreens tied with beautiful ribbon scraps with each person’s name).
* Repurpose what you’ve got – Tired of your old holiday gear? Why not switch with a neighbor?! Deliver two boxes of ornaments or supplies to them and then they deliver two boxes to you. That way the house will feel festive without spending a dime!
* Create edible centerpieces – Organize individual sweets on a pedestal in the middle of each table to double as décor and dessert. Picture candy apples dipped in caramel or chocolate and then individually wrapped in Cello with beautiful ribbon nested among evergreen sprigs. Not only will the centerpieces look festive, guests can eat their candy apples for dessert or take them home as favors at the end of the party.
