Create the perfect atmosphere with festive decorations (even virtually)
Ambience plays a key role in setting the tone for a party. Whether it be a fresh foliage, Christmas-themed cutlery or gingerbread scented candles, all these factors play together to make a soirée more intimate and heartfelt.
As the Christmas season will definitely look a lot different this year, take it up a notch with a virtual Christmas party. There are even more creative ways to spice up the scene in a virtual call with your friends. Snazzy ideas ranging from matching backgrounds, wine tasting or Netflix Party-ing will definitely make this Christmas unforgettable.
The classic Christmas Tree is indispensable in the setting. Add texture and visual aesthetic to the backdrop with Jouer’s Mini White Christmas Tree set. The set comes with dazzling bauble ornaments and scrumptious Christmas-themed bites to perk up the atmosphere.
2. Showcasing Collectibles
Christmas is all about tradition, so why not display something precious to you for the crowd to look at during the party? This is always useful as an icebreaker activity for guests.
