Celebrate in style with some of my favourite Khoollect party planning picks

The festive season is upon us, and it’s one of my favourite times of the year. Late November is when you can find me sketching out ideas for the family Christmas party, presents and, of course, food.

I’m planning a quiet one this year with close family and one giant Christmas tree, but that doesn’t mean I won’t be going all out with the celebratory decorations. While my mum takes charge of the Turkey, I’ll be taking on the role of sous chef and chief party planner.

I love getting creative for the seasonal celebrations, and where better to turn for inspiration than Khoollect? So grab a cuppa, get your thinking caps on and sink your teeth into some of my favourite Christmas party ideas…
