This holiday season, we are excited to be hosting and attending several holiday parties. To help us spice up the traditional holiday party we enlisted the help of Pippa Lord – the Aussie-born, Brooklyn-dwelling founder of SousStyle.com and Skype’s resident guru. An influential lifestyle maven who represents a new generation of homemakers, here are Pippa's tips on how effortless entertain for the holidays.

  • A SURPRISE GUEST: A super smart and chic idea is to host a dinner party and patch in a surprise guest speaker via Skype. It could be a good college friend, an out-of-town relative or someone of interest you know that everyone would love to see.
  • THE MOOD MAKER: I love to run a fabulous film in the background. It's a great conversation starter and the perfect way to keep a lively, relaxed atmosphere. My favorites are Home Alone, Miracle on 54th St, A Mom For Christmas (!), It's a Wonderful Life and A White Christmas.
  • THE NEW CHRISTMAS CAKE: Put your own spin on a traditional recipe like the old fashioned Christmas cake to jazz up the menu. My favorite is by my dear friend Mimi who whipped up this gorgeous berry and meringue sensation.
  • SEND A VIDEO INVITE: A fabulous way to invite your guests is via Skype’s new Video Messaging feature. It's like a virtual Christmas card that you can personalize for every guest. And it doesn't just have to be an invitation. It's also a fantastic time to share your holiday sentiments and give a little update on the past year. So dress up, pose in front of your festive spot and smile! As a fun party favor, you can make sure to keep in touch in the New Year with Skype gift cards.
