3 Essentials for the Best Holiday Party

Holiday parties are one of the best parts of this time of year. Gathering your friends and loved ones together to celebrate, while enjoyable, is sometimes stressful with everything else you have going on in your life. Hosting your best holiday party doesn’t need to be complicated if you keep things simple and remember to have fun. Every successful holiday party needs three things: a playlist, an activity, and snacks.

The Playlist

This is personally my favorite part of any party, especially a holiday party. Playing holiday music will set the mood, ensuring everyone stays festive throughout the night. For the least amount of effort, simply choose a holiday playlist from Pandora and let it go all night. If you want to make your guests feel really special, you could include a line on the RSVP for them to share their favorite holiday tune, and then create a playlist from these favorites.

The Activity

While activities are typically thought of for children, they have a place at all parties. Younger guests may enjoy a craft or writing a letter to Santa. Making holiday decorations is always fun with a small group of close friends. In the spirit of goodwill, service activities are also popular – such as writing letters to troops stationed over seas or putting together bags of food to bring to a local homeless shelter. You may decide your activity is simply catching up with one another; in this case, make sure your holiday party has plenty of seating areas.

The Snacks

Snacks are the most essential part of any great holiday party because nothing makes people lose their holy jolly spirit like hunger. Any of our Delysia Chocolatier holiday themed products are the perfect snack for your party. For a snack that’s as much a treat for your eyes as your mouth, try one of the special holiday molded chocolates. Our milk, dark, and white chocolate Santas, nutcrackers, and Christmas trees make a great edible centerpiece! Two limited edition holiday truffle collections ensure you’ll find a flavor to every guest’s liking. The Santa Truffle Collection features candy cane, hot cocoa, and sugar cookie chocolates. Eggnog, gingerbread, and peppermint flavors await you in the Winter Truffle Collection. As with all our handmade truffles, each flavor is uniquely decorated in a fun and festive print. Be sure to check out all of our holiday products, including the ever popular Peppermint Bark, before they’re gone! If you prefer your party to have a more elegant touch, our Spirits Collection, featuring bourbon, rum, and scotch, or New Years Collection, featuring award-winning cigar, champagne, and strawberry truffles, are sure to be a hit for the most refined palettes.


With a festive playlist, fun activities, and delicious Delysia Chocolatier snacks, your holiday party is sure to be a success that guests won’t stop talking about until next year!
