As the guests enter hand them a special take home ornament as a remembrance of the party. Light a fire in your fireplace and play Christmas carols as background music. If you have a piano, place Christmas sheet music on it in case any of your guests feel inspired to play. I think this would be a great time to have your Christmas entertaining done so that this way you are free - to-be-entertained the rest of the season !
