6 ways to be the perfect Christmas party host with Jo Malone

Fill your home with the smell of roasting chestnuts

Imagine the scent of chestnuts roasting on a crackling fire seasoned with nutmeg, cinnamon and clove, and sweetened with soft caramel… mmm. Create the warm, welcoming atmosphere for your guests—one hour before their arrival, light all the candles in the house, filling your home with a heartwarming fragrance and flickering pools of light.


Decorate with festive greens

Dress your interiors with rich festive greens and accents of crisp whites for an effortlessly elegant look. Mix different hues of green, combining dark and shiny pine needles with silvery eucalyptus. Wind round the staircase, hang over doorways and deck the halls. Add touches of glassy ornaments and green satin bows, and finish with the scent
 of Christmas morning—give fragrant depth to your greenery with Jo Malone’s Pine & Eucalyptus candles.


Create a statement with a table centerpiece
Stage a beautiful centerpiece, then sprinkle a personal touch with cascading layers of fairy lights and foliage. Jo Malone’s Ultimate Christmas Cracker will make a great table ornament.


Hang a sprig of mistletoe
An emblematic Christmas ornament, and a cheeky way to steal a kiss—hang your mistletoe in a porch entrance or above a front door for a touch of classic décor, while setting the scene for a quick bit of mischief.


Add an element of surprise
Everyone loves a surprise. At your Christmas dinner, delight guests with a gift at their place setting. The Jo Malone Christmas Cracker will make a sweet little gift, and it serves as elegant table pieces too. Your guests will appreciate the sweet notion and come away from the party with a pretty ornament to hang on their tree at home.


Leave little Christmas indulgences for overnight guests
It’s the little things that count—if you have guests staying over, add the finishing touch to their room with scent. Light a candle, filling the room with warmth and beautiful scent; prepare luscious bath oils and body wash for a revitalizing freshening up after a long day; spritz the bed linen and towels with clean, soothing scents for a lovely welcome.

There you go, now run along and prepare the perfect Christmas party that will no doubt be the talk of the town.
