Your Time to Shine: How to Host a Holiday Dinner Party in Style

Gather up your dirty laundry, overfilled trash, and posters of bikini’d women because you’ve got guests coming over for the annual Holiday season dinner parties! Rather than just having a clean house, though, why not wow them, impress them, allow them to bask in the glory that is your great taste and sophistication! After all, you’re reading this, so you must have an impeccable appreciation for all that’s fine, right? That’s what we thought. Allow us to enlighten you further and inspire that inner sense of elite taste and home décor—read on, my friend!

So your guests have arrived! As a gracious host, you accept their coats and scarves, and then you offer them a glass of the finest wine your nearest discount market had to offer. Uh, but they don’t need to know that latter part; instead, you simply but coyly look over your shoulder to catch their expressions when you pull a wine bottle from your Wall-Mounted Wine Bottle Rack. Cool and modern stainless steel plus a clever design displays eight bottles of your favorite vino on a wall like the pieces of art that they are. So you not only value style, but you’re smart on space-saving! Look at you, you savvy wine connoisseur!

Well, maybe one of your guests doesn’t want wine, he requests something like a Tom Collins. Rather than shrug or offer him a beer, whip out an Oggi Pro Stainless-Steel 10-Piece Cocktail Shaker and Bar Tool Set and just smirk with confidence. He might not even mind the fact that you have no clue who or what a Tom Collins is because he’ll envy your fine cocktail set, which includes a jigger, tongs, and even a citrus slicer! Pour whatever random concoction you’ve improvised into one of these complementary OGGI Stainless Steel Martini Goblets and proclaim, “This is the newest take on a Tom Conner.”

Step 1: Stir, shake, or mix

Step 2: Pour, sip, enjoy.                                          Step 3: Accept compliments.

I also own a Van Gogh, but I left it at my beachfront loft.

At last, your guests relax in your cozy living room around your Anywhere Indoor/Outdoor Fireplace. See, you don’t need a stationary fireplace, you explain to your listeners and admirers. You believe in simplicity, in versatility, and in expression, and nothing unites these attributes more than this tabletop fireplace. Oh my, is it hot in here, or is it just you? You articulate monster, you!

So we’ve got you prepped to impress. This is the part where you take it from here—what? Did you expect us to provide a list of appropriate but witty conversations to have? Sheesh!

    Having a variety of mixed drinks really makes the party. Don’t just offer beer and/or wine. Spice it up a bit
