Hosting During the Holidays

Make your holiday a little brighter by hosting friends and family members at your apartment home for a celebration.

Homemade party food is easy to prepare when you’re finding inspiration to cook in a chef-inspired kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. Guests can find comfort in your food and gather for appetizers around the built-in kitchen island. Putting together a few snacks, like spinach and goat cheese tartlets or sweet and spicy pecans, will surely encourage your guests to gather around the food for a few laughs.

There’s more than enough counter space to have a family potluck-style dinner where guests make their own plates piled high with the best side dishes, such as charred green beans or brussels sprouts with pancetta.

Buying plastic containers before the party will make it easy to give guests a chance to take home some of their favorite holiday dishes as leftovers.

There’s more than enough room for entertaining guests in your apartment home and in the Yards community. Setting blankets out on chairs on the large balcony will give guests an outdoor area for cozy conversations while the community space, with a stacked fireplace, also offers a good place for warm talks.

High ceilings and an open floorplan will help guests feel at home while keeping low holiday music playing the background of your apartment can set the mood throughout the entire event. Serving festive holiday drinks will also help spread some holiday cheer. Mulled wine is easy to do at home and can be kept warm in a slow cooker for the entire afternoon and evening. And festive mugs are a cheap and thoughtful take-home gift that can accompany any warm beverage being served.

And after the festive feast is over, you can get a jump start on a fitness resolution in the community’s 24-hour fitness center. The Yards has everything a host could need to throw a memorable holiday party.
