How to Plan a Classy New Year’s Party

There’s no better way to say farewell to the year that was and celebrate the arrival of a new one than with the company of family and friends. On December 31, pay tribute to endings and welcome new beginnings by having a marvelous and classy New Year’s Eve party. Here’s a quick guide on how to throw a memorable year-end celebration:

Send Out Invitations

a New Year's party with family and friends

Send out invitations to friends, family, and neighbors at least three days before the celebration. Give them the location and time that the cocktail party begins (at 10pm preferably). Invite them to come in their most posh and dapper outfits. After all, it’s only right to welcome the New Year in style.

Choose the Perfect Location

The foyer and living room are the perfect venues for this kind of party. If you live in the warmer states, you can also have it in the garden or in your terrace so people can watch fireworks displays. Don’t forget to place cocktail tables and decorate your space with light strings to make the area more captivating. Set up a mini-bar and stock it with wine, champagne, and other hard liquor. Fancy cocktails, like martinis, tequila sunrises, Napa sours, and mimosas are also ideal for this occasion. For some New Year cocktail inspirations, check out Mix that Drink and Saveur.

Serve Delicious Party Snacks

Most of your guests have probably had dinner around this time, but it’s still important to serve some yummy food choices in case anyone gets hungry. This is especially needed if you plan to have a party until the wee hours of the morning.

Traditional party food works! Try these fried mozzarella cheese sticks from Copykat, breadcrumb stuffed mushroom from Laura in the Kitchen, or these delicious Baltimore crab cakes from Epicurious. Serve loaded nachos from The Pioneer Woman or these delicious Pigs in a Blanket from Just a Pinch.  Put out bowls of chips, salted pretzels, and various dips so that everyone has something to munch on while waiting for midnight.

Keep the Cocktails Flowing and Turn Up the Music

Make sure that everyone has a drink and is having a good time. Talk to all your friends and introduce people to each other. Play some celebratory music to provide an exciting atmosphere for the occasion. You can also create your very own party playlist before the festivities begin.

Welcome the New Year Together

Two minutes before midnight, call everyone’s attention and announce that you are only moments away from the New Year. Start a countdown 20 seconds before the clock hits twelve. Welcome the New Year together and party until the morning.

Have a blast this New Year’s Eve with this party planning guide from Tree Classics.

5 Smart Ways to Get the Best Online Deals and Discounts after Christmas!

Shopping online right after the holiday season is one of the smartest ways you can save up!

Forget the holiday rush that takes up all your time, money, and energy. Anyone can do their post-holiday shopping in the comfort of their home, in front of their desktop or laptop computers, or even with just a tablet in hand. Luckily, Tree Classics has compiled smart tips to help you get the best deals and discounts, avoid scams, and also protect your computer system from malicious and malevolent software posing as ‘great’ offers.

shopping during Cyber Monday is the best way to get the best deal this season

1. Do Some Background Research on Online Retailers

After the holiday shopping frenzy comes the clearance sale! Check out the website of your favorite stores and brands. Bookmark the merchandise that catches your interest and take note of the markdown in prices.

Right before making the purchase, visit what is known as a comparison shopping website to see if another online merchant offers a lower price for the item you’ve been eyeing. Compare the deals before clicking!

2. Update Your Computer’s Security System

One of the dangers to online shopping is picking up computer viruses and programs that either destroy your files or steal your data. Before visiting any e-commerce website, update your anti-virus programs and spam protectors first. If your system doesn’t have one, purchase a program and install it before going online. Remember, cleaning and repairing a system once it gets infested costs a lot more than simply installing a security software right from the start.

3. Upgrade Your Browser to the Latest Version

updating your browser can speed up your system

Don’t miss out on a good deal just because of a slow system. You can remedy this by updating your browser so you can connect faster and enjoy other features of the site. These features may include video streaming on how to use an item or the zoom-in function when you view photos of the product.

It’s also a great idea to update your operating system if you can. Cleaning out junk files might also help since this will speed up your gadget’s overall performance.

4. Never Click on Links to Sites that are NOT Trusted

Often, you’ll get junk email about supposedly ‘great’ deals from unknown senders and incongruous sites. Unless you’re familiar with the name, don’t click on them. Most of these sites are breeding grounds for viruses and worms that can ruin your computer and your online shopping experience. Stick with the websites you are familiar with.

5. Use PayPal (or Other Payment Protection Services) to Avoid Credit Card Fraud and Take Note of All Your Purchases

use your credit cards during Cyber Monday

There will be sites and deals out there that offer various methods of payments. To be safe and also process payments faster, always use a secure third-party payment processor, such as PayPal or ProPay, so you can avoid having to give out your credit card number each time you shop at a different website. At the same time, these websites help you keep track of expenses by letting you check the invoice online. You can then check this invoice against your upcoming credit card statement.

Enjoy a safe and splendid post-holiday shopping spree online when you follow these smart tips from Tree Classics!

Heartwarming Christmas Tree Traditions

Christmas has always been a time for cherishing family traditions and building memories around the Christmas tree. Here are some traditions that have stood the test of time.

old-2066_640The holidays are always the most opportune time for the family to bond and instill new traditions. As the years pass, simple family customs are cemented into our lives – and those who once established such traditions begin to hold a special place in our collective memory. Here are a few Christmas tree traditions with heartwarming beginnings.

The Wessler Christmas Tree

While stationed in Guayaquil, Ecuador in 1963, Bob Wessler, his wife Anne and sons Tony and Jim wanted to honor the holiday tradition of decorating a Christmas tree in their home. But the lack of traditional evergreens in Ecuador at that time made it nearly impossible to set one up. Since Ann Wessler did not want to adopt the local custom of attaching painted sticks to a base, she decided to have an artificial tree sent to their home.

After 49 years, this same tree still stands strong and has now been adopted by Tony and his wife Beth. They have been continuing the tradition of decorating this family treasure. In 2012, the couple decided to share this tradition with their community by putting the tree up in their office in Sullivan, Montana.

The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree

When you talk about Christmas trees immersed in tradition, you can be sure the Rockefeller Christmas tree is among them. First displayed during the Great Depression, the Rockefeller Christmas tree was once just a small, unadorned tree set up by construction workers.

In 1933, the tree was replaced with a lighted one, and it has since become grander each year. More than 80 years later, the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree remains an icon of New York City.

The Oldest Christmas Tree

Do you have a family heirloom that has been passed on from generation to generation? For the Parker family, one of their greatest treasures is their 126-year-old Christmas tree. Measuring only 14 inches tall and bought in 1886 for a mere sixpence, this diminutive masterpiece has been confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records to be the oldest known artificial Christmas tree in the world. It now has a value of £1,000 or about $1,500.

For Paul Parker, the third generation owner of this incredible tree, the miniature ornamental Christmas tree is priceless.

Family traditions truly leave an imprint on our individual lives, and Christmas is the perfect season for strengthening these bonds. For one family, Christmas traditions may involve prepping the tree and the family feast. For another, it may be the opening of gifts on Christmas morning. One thing is for certain: time-honored family traditions live on.

We would love to hear from you. What are the Christmas traditions of your family?

Dressing up the bottom of your Christmas tree with a tree skirt is a great way to hide an unsightly tree stand. More importantly, tree skirts serve as a lovely background for beautifully wrapped Christmas presents. Here are five DIY Christmas tree skirts that can add a heartwarming feel to your tree.

The No-Sew Ruffle Christmas Tree Skirt by The Johnston’s

This pretty DIY tree skirt is eye-catching with its lovely ruffles. What is even more interesting is how this was pieced together without being sewn!

Lay out your old tree skirt, or use a circular cloth as base. Start pinning the fabric strips along its circumference by beginning at the edge of the tree skirt. Pinch a portion of the fabric strip and press down to create a ruffle. After pinning, glue the strips on the base. Keep going until you reach the inner part of the circle. Check out Ashley’s post in The Johnston’s blog for the complete set of instructions.

1. Send out Personalized Invitations

List down all the family members and friends that you want to be there and make them invitations. Most party invites are done through email and Facebook, so creating your very own handcrafted invitation will have a sweeter and more personal touch. List down all the details they need, such as the location, date, and time. Don’t forget to include your contact number so they can RSVP immediately. Indicate if the guests will need to bring a gift.

2. Decorate Your Rooms

Prepare several areas for the party. Ideally, you should have three rooms to use. The pre-dinner and after-dinner gatherings can happen at the foyer and the living room, while the dining room can be for the dinner proper.

a lovely table setting for your Christmas party

Once you’ve decided on the rooms, make sure they have everything they need there. You may need several additional cocktail tables or even chairs. Rent these at least three days before the party. Fill your home with holiday cheer by hanging garlands, wreaths, and ornaments. You can also use several white or red candles to add a soulful touch to your festivities.

3. Make the Perfect Christmas Menu

 juicy and mouthwatering shrimp cocktail

The food is the most important aspect of the celebration so be sure to cover the bases. For starters, serve some finger foods while the guests gather in the foyer or the living room. This light and refreshing prawn cocktail from the Gourmet Traveler is a perfect start to the feast. For something zestier and bolder, try the schmancy smoked salmon recipe from Amazing Ribs.

a rack of lamb for everyone to enjoy

For the main course, go all out and serve sumptuous and unforgettable dishes. Begin with a delectable and creamy winter squash soup from Wishful Chef and follow it up immediately with this apple cider brined turkey with savory herb gravy from Tastebook and some Dijon baby lamb chops with mint sauce from Yum Sugar. Don’t forget to include side dishes, such as Yorkshire pudding from the Pink Whisk, baked potatoes from Add a Pinch, and smoke-roasted vegetables from Epicurious.

the classic apple pie for dessert

Don’t forget the dessert. Serve up a classic gingerbread house from Lydia Bikes, a classic apple pie from Pastry Affair and this delicious pistachio ice cream from Taste of Home.

4. Serve Refreshing Drinks and Stock up Your Bar

 eggnog and bottles of fine red wine

Prepare several drink choices for guests. Serve up this delicious homemade eggnog from Simple Bites. Buy good bottles of exquisite white and red wine for dinner. For the dessert, offer a pot of coffee or tea to everyone. Make sure your bar is stocked with spirits and liquor for the merriment after the wonderful Christmas banquet!

5. Show Your Hospitality

 presents for the exchange gift

As the host, it’s your responsibility to make sure your guests are comfortable and having fun in your home. Introduce people to each other. Make sure to catch up with family and friends. Ask if everyone is having a good time. Offer them food and drinks. Make a heartwarming toast during supper. Afterwards, share stories and experiences. Don’t stay in one spot for too long, but don’t forget to have fun as well.

6. Send Thank You Notes After

A couple of days after, send a note to those who attended your party to show your deep gratitude for their presence. Greet them ‘Merry Christmas’ and tell them that you hope to have their company again in the near future.

Throw a great and unforgettable party this holiday season with these tips from Tree Classics!

Christmas Tree Decorating Ideas: Silver and Gold Ornaments

There are timeless Christmas tree decorating ideas that never go out of style, match other yuletide décor beautifully, and constantly provide a regal appearance that’s perfect for the season: gold and silver decorations. Here are several inspiring gold and silver choices that are perfect for your Christmas tree:

Silver Christmas Decorations

glimmering silver christmas balls for your tree

 

Silver Christmas balls instantly add a touch of sophistication to your tree. The contrast between the lively evergreens and the sleek and shimmering ornaments creates a dazzling spectacle that conveys elegance in any space. Guests and loved ones will look at your tree for a few seconds just to bask in its beauty. Mix up the ornaments. Get solid ones and striped ones. This will create a contrast that will add more character to your centerpiece.

delightful snowflake ornaments for your tree

 

Silver snowflakes are another type of adornment that you can hang on branches. These ornaments bring the unique look of a wintry landscape. The color carries a touch of serenity to your room while the geometric design adds grace and versatility to your space.  Pair these with pine cones and leaves to take full advantage of the season’s wintry charm.

refined elegant antique ornaments

 

Antique pieces are also excellent choices. These small items with their traditional but timeless shapes and forms add an Old World flair to spaces. They are perfect for houses with classic themes and even rustic, cabin-like undertones. These are particularly lovely with white clear lights that accentuate their physical appearance.

a beaded snowflake tree topper

 

Finally, a great finishing touch is to use a silver snowflake tree topper. This tree topper is a superb alternative to traditional star-shaped ornaments. At the same, it’s also a great way to capture the appeal of other silver accents in your room.

Gold Christmas Decorations

The color gold has the distinctive quality of inspiring deep sentiment while conveying a regal mood. Gold Christmas balls deliver this precious appeal effortlessly. What’s particularly great about these items is that they go well with both evergreens and white Christmas trees.

gold LED christmas lights

 

Gold can also be used to give your tree an air of mysticism. Pairing gold lights with a deep green Christmas tree creates an enchanting vision that reminds people of evergreens surrounded by dozens of beautiful fireflies. This enthralling look is especially more delightful at night, when the gold lights shine bright, filling your space with a magical air.

good ribbons, gold balls and gold ornaments are perfect for the season

 

Gold is also one of those colors that just becomes so much more beautiful when it’s paired with similarly colored items. Traditional artificial Christmas trees, like the one in the image, benefit from a combination of gold-colored balls, leaves, flowers, and even gold iridescent lights. A bountiful display such as this fills homes with a royal and lavish appeal that’s synonymous with the season.

a classic gold star christmas tree topper

 

Of course, nothing says Christmas like a gorgeous star tree topper. An impeccable addition to any holiday décor, this piece is a powerful statement about the special and festive meaning of the season. This is the perfect crown for any type of Christmas tree.

Add style, sophistication, and beauty to your home this Christmas season with these gold and silver decorating ideas from Tree Classics.
