Red & Gold Christmas Party Ideas

Christmas is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited for the festive season to begin!

So today we’re going to show you how to throw a stunning red and gold Christmas party with one of our newest party ranges – Merry & Bright!

This fabulously festive party theme is perfect for the party season and wouldn’t look out of place on Christmas Day either! Read on for inspiration.


If you’re having a buffet at your party, festive tableware is essential! We mixed and matched these stunning Merry & Bright plates and napkins that get you instantly in the Christmas spirit!

Red & Gold Christmas Party Supplies

The plates come in two different designs – plain red and striped – and if you can’t decide which ones to choose, get both!
