A Red and Gold Christmas Dinner Party

I've lost count of how many dinner parties I've done on this blog, but one thing's for sure: Christmas is my favorite one to curate. There's something magical about creating the perfect dinner party for my friends and family on the most precious night of the year. 

The Decor
Nothing says Christmas trimmings like popping red and shimmering gold.

The Menu
Prime rib and a show stopping dessert are holiday staples in my heart.
Wait, that sounds kind of morbid... but you get the idea.

Rolled Beef Rib Roast with Horseradish Cream, Carrot Soup with Bacon and Chestnut Cream, Asparagus with Orange Hollandaise Sauce, Crispy Smashed Potatoes, Crunchy Bread Dressing with Bacon and Leeks, Jam-Filled Cake with Chocolate Glaze

What I'm Wearing
A little Victorian and a little sweet with pops of red and gold to complement the decor.
necklace, tights, dress, gloves, shoes

The Playlist
I swear, no one does Christmas music like Sandi Patty
My favorite? Bethlehem Morning. The song might make you tear up a bit. 
It's not on this particular album, but if you look it up on iTunes, you will not be disappointed.

The Favor
Little pockets of these gingerbread caramels will bring a sweet smile to your guests.

Merry Christmas, my good friends!
And for those who are trying to get into the season, I highly recommend this video. It's the story behind the hymn, Silent Night. Very powerful and will get you into the spirit right away.
