The festive season really is the best time to build yourself a reputation as a top hostess and party planner. Grab the moment because most of the work is already done – your house or apartment is decorated anyway and your friends are just looking for an excuse to pop their Christmas jumpers on.

You could be really lazy and just invite everyone over (BYOB just like every other standard party) OR you could make your gathering exceptional with very little effort – because what can’t be improved by a tasty selection of edibles?
