'Tis the season for making merry! Other than decorating, celebrating the yuletide with delicious food and drinks is my favorite part of the season. If I could host or go to a holiday party several nights a week with my family and friends throughout the month of December, I would be one happy guy.

As much as I enjoy a large party, I’m also a big fan of small get-togethers. Six or so people snuggled on the couch with snacks, cocktails and a board game is my idea of a wonderful time.

One reason I like these more intimate gatherings is because they are easier to plan. The menu doesn’t have to be quite as intense, and you only need one or two really good drinks. Plus, preparing everything is much simpler and less time consuming.

White Christmas Celebration

Today I thought I’d share one party idea with you. One of the first things I always think about when it comes to planning any festivity is the color scheme. Having a color or two in mind when putting together a party can guide your decisions for how to decorate and what to serve.

The traditional colors of the season are a great place to begin. For this particular gathering, with the snow starting to fall, I thought White Christmas was a perfect theme. I also was inspired by the frosty look of these .

I scouted my house for everything white. Because white tends to go with just about anything, I had a lot of things to choose from. In fact, I didn’t have to purchase any decorations or accessories for this cozy little get-together.

After bringing in some cake stands and plates for displaying food, I tucked in miniature trees and scattered vintage ornaments around for extra sparkle.

With the display set, I decided to go decadent with my snacks and drinks. were a must. I also served a few , because who doesn’t love red velvet?

White Christmas Celebration

As I mentioned above, I let my color choice help me to decide on cocktails for the party. In my opinion, it’s always a good idea to have a signature drink at a party. While some guests will reach for their favorites, you’d be surprised how many people are excited to try something new.

I came up with two recipes for my party that I want to share with you today. Sticking with my white theme, the first cocktail is a White Christmas Martini.

Garnished with a sparkly sugared rim, this cocktail is like an adults-only white chocolate milkshake in a glass. You’re going to love it!

2 ounce white chocolate liqueur

Honey and coarse sanding sugar for rim garnish

White Christmas Celebration

Pour the honey into a shallow dish and put the sanding sugar in another shallow dish. Coat the rim of the glass in the honey; then dip the rim in the sugar to coat evenly. Set the glass aside.

In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the vodka, white chocolate liqueur, creme de cacao and half-and-half. Shake vigorously and strain into the prepared martini glass.

For the other cocktail, I decided to put those dipped cherries to work as a garnish. Plus, I love the flavor combination of cherry and almond around the holidays, so this was a win-win.

Add the liqueurs to a tumbler filled with ice. Top with half-and-half. Stir to mix, then garnish with a dipped cherry.

And that’s it, friends. Using the white color scheme, I was able to deliver a beautiful and delicious party in no time. I hope you have fun putting together your own color-themed party.

White Christmas Celebration

Cheers to you and yours this holiday season!
