Colourful Holiday Party

Amp up the festive atmosphere with bold hues in lieu of traditional red and green.

In this living room, vibrant colours introduced in the artwork are echoed in the flowers (purple anemones and orange ranunculus) and accessories. To entice guests to linger after dinner, serve a decadent cheese platter here, instead of staying at the dining table: select a few varieties at a local cheese shop and plate them with gourmet crackers, dried fruit and walnuts.

Get delicious appetizer recipes. Plus, see more party-perfect rooms in our photo gallery and get event-planning tips, recipes and drink ideas in our party guide.
