It’s almost Christmas, and while everyone is busy coming up with their wish lists and buying gifts for others, some are busy planning holiday parties they are intending to host. The menu is easy to think of, just throw in a ham or turkey, some potato salad, a few glasses of wine, and you’re good to go.

But the tricky part lies in the dessert because people have different tastes when it comes to sweet things — others like sugary goodness, while some are all about the fruity side of things. So to minimise your stress, we have 5 desserts you can serve or bring to any holiday party for the whole season!

Macarons

It’s light, comes in an array of colours and flavours, and it looks gorgeous to serve. That’s right, we’re talking about the beloved French confection, macarons! This meringue-based cookie is great for the holidays because of how festive the colours can look, how easy it is to eat, and guests won’t have to make a mess!

Cupcakes

While various food critics are declaring the death of the cupcake era, that doesn’t mean it’s not delicious and great for parties. Like the macaron, it’s easy to eat (albeit with extra handwork needed), flavours can be catered to people’s different tastes, and kids will enjoy them because they’re like mini cakes!


Tartlets

You may see these at cafes and eat them with coffee or tea, but these bit-sized fruity and creamy desserts are perfect for the holidays, whether it’s a dinner party or a cocktail party! Plus, the fresh fruit on top will make you feel less guilty for eating one (or two), right?


Fudge

Fudge is one of the most popular gifts to give and serve during Christmas because it’s extremely easy to make, serve, and eat! This smooth confection can have marshmallows, dates, nuts, and a whole bunch of other knick-knacks you want to add to spice up its taste and texture!


Cake

The single most popular dessert served at any holiday party, or any party for that matter, is cake. This timeless dessert is great at any get together because they’re delicious, it brings people together, it can be shared, and it comes in a vast range of flavours and sizes from classic selections such as carrot, all the way down to experimental ones like dark chocolate champagne!

This past September 19 in Cheongdam, Seoul, a radiant light box known as the flagship store of Acne Studios opened. The space, designed by renowned architect Sophie Hicks, combined elements of nature and future with its exterior similar to a greenhouse, and its interior looking like a chic, dystopian, and industrial shop.


Situated upon fields of vegetation typically found in the Swedish Islands, once inside the shop, each collection is displayed against freestanding sterile metal walls. The store, a whopping 2,475 square feet, is home to the brand’s men and women ready-to-wear collections, accessories, and footwear.

With its bold pieces, it’s easy to get lost within the plethora of prints and textures. So if you’re looking to purchase some items from the brand, get some inspiration with our 5 must-have pieces from Acne Studios!

Conquer Decem-blur and brighten a room wearing red or yellow. It’s a fact that happy colors affect people’s mood. So spread the joy, right? Pick something like this Oasis Shift Dress.

Opt for festive details

Glitters, sequins, plaid, and jacquard are inherently festive so try to build your look around one of these elements. But you can also level up and dress beyond the sparkles. This Adrenaline Crushed Top from ModCloth features crushed velvet in jewel-toned hue, which adds texture to your look.


Don a bow

Much like a topper to a wrapped present, a bow can give that final touch to any outfit for a subtle holiday feel. Wear it on your clothes, hair, or as embellishment to your accessories like this pair of Lost Ink Flat Brogues.


Paint your kissers red

The red lip is a classic beauty look that’s elegant, festive and easy to apply. Smile and use a brush to apply the product. We like Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick.


Wear a holiday scent


(Get It Here)


Scents are very personal so pick a blend that reminds you of holiday celebrations, be it the scent of your freshly washed sweater, hot chocolate and peppermint barks, or the blooming roses on grandma’s yard. Try the scent of Molton Brown Elderflower Body Wash.
