The holidays and entertaining go hand in hand. But who says you have to stress out to throw a great party? An easy and elegant way to entertain a large group is an old-fashioned yet still superchic cocktail party. The secret to keeping guests satisfied? Plan a grazing-style dinner in the form of several substantial hors d'oeuvres. Pass some appetizers on trays and offer other snacks at serving stations. And don't forget the colorful napkins, bold and beautiful serving bowls and platters, and one signature holiday drink to get the party rocking!
