Whatever tier you’re finding yourself in this December and whether via Zoom or with your bubble, Christmas parties will feel slightly different this year. However, that doesn’t mean you still can’t host the perfect festive fiesta. Chelsea Peers has put together a little guide on how to host a cracking pandemic-time Christmas party, complete with festive cocktails, easy Christmas decorations, and the comfiest outfits around...
 
Dressing down...
One good thing about staying at home this Christmas is that the days of high-heeled blistered feet or uncomfortable spanx lines are days of yore. As your Christmas party will be taking place in the comfort of your own home, throw on your favourite pair of pyjamas for the cosiest Christmas shindig! At Chelsea Peers, we’re loving the below styles this December...
The golden foil sparkle on this kid’s set will add a touch of magic while still keeping your little one super comfy!
 
Perhaps you’re hosting a Christmas pamper party for some end of the year relaxation. If so, unwind in these super soft pyjamas adorned with cute little spa cats for the ultimate pamper experience! 
 
Release your inner party animal with these gorgeous zebra print long pyjamas; who says you can’t get wild in your living room?
 
And if you really want to up the Christmas Party vibes, how about getting matching Christmas PJs for all the guests, even if they are virtual! We have you covered with our Christmas Collection
DIY Decorations 
If you can’t venture out to get party decorations this year, don’t fret. A quick rummage around your cupboards for some classic household bits and bobs and you have festive decorations at your fingertips. Check out our ideas for easy Christmas decorations...
 
Been drinking a lot of coffee to get through lockdown 2.0? Use those spare coffee filters to make a gorgeous garland to adorn your fireplace. We love this idea from Country Living for a simple yet stunning Christmas decoration. 
 
Got a spare orange rolling around the back of the fridge? How about making dried orange slices which you can pop anywhere for a zesty burst of festiveness! Slice thickly, pat dry with a kitchen towel then put them in the oven on a low heat for a few hours, checking regularly. Once ready, you can place them in candle jars or string up around windows. Easy peasy orange squeezy!
 
Grab some popsicle sticks and some glue and challenge the whole family to make the perfect popsicle snowflake! They look magical hung up in windows and will keep the little ones busy for hours!
 
Tipples and Nibbles 
 
A party isn’t a party with a festive tipple or two! And even if you are partying through a screen, why don’t you send a package to your loved ones with the ingredients to make a Christmassy cocktail, so you can all raise a glass together!
We love mixing cranberry sauce, bourbon, ginger ale and fresh lemon together for a sparkling spritz! Garnish with a sprig of rosemary for a festive cocktail that tastes as delicious as it looks. 
 
At a Christmas Party, you don’t want to be slaving away in the kitchen. These brie and cranberry twists from BBC Good Food are super easy, taste divine and of course, tick all the festive boxes! And as they take less than half an hour, that’s more time for partying!
