Celebrate your Independence: Wine and Cheese

Yuletide Tidings for Two: Jamon and Antipasti Platter

Christmas sparks romance anew for newlyweds. It’s your first holiday together as husband and wife so don’t scrimp on the festivities. Fill up your home with a lovely spread of Jamon Iberico and an Antipasti platter. Then, pair it up with your favorite vintage and make a toast to your new Christmas tradition.

 

A Homecoming Feast: Delicious Main Courses

More than the presents and the home-cooked feast, it’s when the entire family is complete that makes Christmas truly magical. But for many, that’s a rare occasion with relatives scattered abroad or retired to far-flung provinces. So, when everyone is home for Christmas, celebrate in the grandest way with a Classic Roast Turkey or a sweet Glazed Ham to crown your holiday banquet.

 

Just for the Grandkids: Holiday Baked Goods

It’s hard not to spoil children, especially when they’re your own grandkids, and you’re a new grandparent. This holiday, gift them all the love and affection that only a new lolo and lola can give with delectable desserts and cakes from Marketplace by Rustan’s. See their hearts swell as they shower you with hugs and kisses that are just as sweet!

 

The After-Party: Hors’ D’oeuvres All Around

Noche Buena doesn’t end at the stroke of midnight. Once all the presents have been opened, and all the kids have gone to bed, it’s time to break out your finest China and serve up some artfully arranged platters of charcuterie and cheese. Pop open a bottle of champagne or your oldest whiskey, and you have an after-party you and your friends will keep talking about until the New Year’s.
