How To Host A Chocolate Holiday Party (Part 2)



Happy day, everyone! Welcome back to my Part 2 of “How To Host A Chocolate Holiday Party.” Did you all get a chance to enter the $250 GODIVA Giveaway yet? Don’t forget as it ends on 12/24!

I’m glad to be back with another fantastic entertaining idea. It makes me really happy that I’m able to help you spark a little joy this season by sharing my DIY entertaining inspirations!

For Part 2, I want to show you how to put together a Chocolate Centerpiece with the things you already own at home. Combine this idea with my last one, and you’re already half way to creating a beautiful and effortless holiday party, all surrounded by everyone’s favorite GODIVA chocolate. They’ll leave little taste of happiness long after the treats are gone!


When it comes to entertaining, I like to check around my home to see what I can use creatively so I’m not always spending a lot to throw a party. After all, I like to spend the money where I can taste it – the chocolates. :)

To create this Chocolate Centerpiece, here are the simple steps:

1. Gather wine glasses, tumblers and flutes.

2. Turn them upside down. 

3. And create chocolate stands!

Talk about effortless, right?! 

For the chocolates, I chose the GODIVA Gold Ballotin Holiday Box. It has GODIVA’s most popular and sophisticated assortment (plus some seasonal favorites), and the dazzling gold box packaging just can’t be beat! Makes one good-looking gift too, if you ask me.

I also used a few more chocolates from the Signature Truffle Box, just because they are so pretty. You can find these beautiful holiday editions online and in GODIVA boutiques.



I chose glasses to use for this centerpiece because they are elegant, create sparkles and bring a festive mood to the table! To help you make this centerpiece stand out even more, here are some of my styling tips:

> For the glasses, make sure to gather a variety so that it creates different heights and shapes.


> Put your favorite ornaments inside some of the glasses as decor to add holiday spirit!

> To make sure the chocolates pop on the centerpiece, stay with light decor pieces. I chose metallics and whites, so that they don’t take attention away from the chocolates or compete with their beautiful wrappings.

Doesn’t the chocolates look pretty on display? It adds such sweetness to the table.

I hope you like this Chocolate Centerpiece I put together. I think this idea is fun, elegant, and effortless! And if you need to buy new glasses for this, at least it’s a smart purchase that you can use all year round.

For beautiful tableware (if you’re looking, that is), I like collecting my dining staples from Crate & Barrel, CB2 and West Elm, while unique pieces from designers like Tina Frey Designs.


Wanna give this a try? Order your favorite box online or pick up at GODIVA boutiques while Christmas shopping!


Thanks so much for tuning in again! I really can’t think of a better time to share a big box of chocolates other than the holidays. With that, I hope I’ve inspired you some good ideas on how to enjoy your chocolates, while creating sweet memories with your family and friends.

I’ll be back soon with Part 3! I’m already excited thinking about sharing my last idea with you.
