The holiday season truly is the most wonderful time of the year. Invite family and friends over to celebrate the spirit of the season. Here are some tips for throwing a fabulous and festive traditional holiday party.
Put a New Spin on a Classic Recipe
It’s fun to take favorite dishes and put a fresh spin on them. One great update to the traditional holiday ham is the Aloha Ham, glazed with ginger and pineapple juice (100% DOLE® Canned Pineapple Juice). It adds a delicious flavor to the ham and it still works perfectly with other holiday meal staples like cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes.
Serve Sweet Treats
Cupcakes are fun holiday desserts. The Pineapple Cinnamon Cupcakes are a cinch to make. Bake them with 100% DOLE® Canned Pineapple Juice for a sweet treat.
Dress Your Home for the Season
Less can be more when it comes to decorating. Hang a simple evergreen wreath on your door to welcome guests.
Fill glass cylinders with pinecones and ornaments for a festive display. You can even spray some faux snow on the pinecones to give them a wintery feel.
Set a Cheery Table
A red and white checked tablecloth sets the stage for a lovely tablescape. A few springs of greenery, along with berries and a single hydrangea makes a stunning arrangement. Small votives and shiny ornaments complete the look.
For an extra special touch, tie a candy cane and a spring of rosemary on a white napkin.
Plan a gift exchange with friends to get everyone in the holiday spirit.

What a lovely party! It definitely reminds me of all of the joy of the holidays. When I was growing up my Mother always used Dole Pineapple on her ham. She’d score the top of the ham and hold the pineapple slices in place with cloves. I looked forward to that every year.
When it comes to the holidays, I love tradition! Thanks for the great tips:)
