The Ultimate Holiday Cocktail Party Playlist
These 30 songs are perfect for your party this season.
‘Tis the season for cocktail parties! And when it comes to throwing your own soiree, playing hostess isn’t always easy. There’s schmoozing to do, soufflés to cook…and music to choose.
What songs should you play at a cocktail gathering, you ask? Think upbeat, but not overpowering tracks. You want to be able to chat with your guests over the music. But a selection too mellow will lull them to sleep by the cheese platter.
Thanks to Betty, now you can check music off your list. We’ve created the Ultimate Holiday Cocktail Party Playlist to make your night merrier. From Tony Bennett to Mariah Carey, it’s the perfect fusion of classic and current holiday hits. We’ve also tossed in some everyday faves so your guests aren’t ho-ho-hoed out after their first eggnog.
So go ‘head—press play, relax and raise your glass to a great party!
