Guerdy Abraira knows how to throw a damn good party, and New Year's Eve is her crème de la crème. So when we teamed up with G.H. Mumm this holiday season to bring you the ultimate party kit to ring in 2022, we looked to Guerdy for some très chic inspiration and her expertise when it comes to the art of entertaining. Read on for some of her hosting tips and to indulge in some seriously dreamy images of Guerdy partying with Festive Fête.
Q & A
What's your best host tip for an epic NYE party?
Activate the five senses as much as possible! Smell, sight, taste, touch and sound are the makings of a great party, so incorporate elements of each throughout your party. Festive Fête makes this so easy.
Favorite party-friendly foods to serve?
Deviled eggs topped with caviar and crème fraîche is the perfect savory snack. Then of course macarons for everyone with a sweet tooth!
What will you and your guests be sipping on as you ring in the new year?
The G.H. Mumm Champagne will be flowing! I'll also be pre-batching Masahiro Urushido's Winter Spiced Punch so I'm no spending the evening playing bartender.
To set the vibe and get everyone on their feet, what playlist will you have going on NYE?
My friends and I will be dancing the night away to this Festive Fête mix.
Best way to make sure everyone has a great time?
As the host, make sure everyone feels at home and comfortable. Take the time to have one-on-one conversations with your guests so they know that you care and appreciate their presence.
