This time of year, when we’re inundated by holiday commercials, it’s only natural to fantasize about hosting an elegant wintry cocktail party. Check out these sweet peppermint-inspired pieces that can bring even last-minute drinks together with style.

These lacquered, deep red metallic trays from Pier One are perfect for appetizers or flutes of Champagne. One or two can be arranged on a buffet table or passed around the crowd. For $10, it’s a steal—and they’re also available in gold.


Jokes about Rudolph are almost irresistible with these stemless martini glasses from Target. They’re on sale for $16.19 for a set of six.

Serve glass dishes of candy, spiced nuts, or pomegranate seeds on these metallic charger plates from Crate & Barrel. They’re $4.95 each or four for $14.95. Also from Crate & Barrel, these candy-striped ornament napkin rings are $9.95 for a set of four. The handmade glass pieces double as placecard holders.
