4 Unexpected holiday party tablescapes

Holidays around the globe

The holiday season is celebrated in very different ways across the world. Create a global tablescape this year and invite your friends over for an "Around the World" holiday party!

  1. Frame Christmas greetings from around the world on your table including "Nollaig Shona Dhuit" which means "Merry Christmas" in Irish-Gaelic language.
  2. Serve holiday treats from around the world such as turrón from Spain which is a nougat made of toasted sweet almonds.
  3. Champagne is the drink of choice for the holiday season in Italy as well as much of Europe. Serve a build-your-own champagne cocktail bar with sweet syrups like raspberry and cherry for guests to add to their sparkling drink.
  4. Serve sparkling cider for the younger guests and set up a coloring station where the children can color flags from around the world while the adults enjoy mixing and mingling.
