Holiday Wine and Cheese Party

1. Make Your Party Seasonal

Parties are meant to bring people together, so create an environment people will feel comfortable in.

2. Have a Theme in Mind

In this case, Monica went with a wine and cheese party, a chic and sophisticated idea that doesn't take much time at all.

3. Keep it casual and serve good food

4. Always Incorporate Some Design Elements

5. Give your guests something to do and send them home with a gift

Monica believes in parties being interactive, especially if guests don't know one another. Having jewelry to try on is a way she likes to have a group of women come together, and send them home with a gift.
