Happy Holidays

Giada's Buone Feste (Italian for "happy holidays") platters tempt her guests with sweet-tooth-satisfying chocolates.

Friendly Get-Together

Giada's invited one of her longtime friends over to celebrate the season with her.

Take a Seat

At once warm and welcoming, Giada's feastworthy table is decorated with seasonal side plates as well as individual place cards for each guest.

Help Yourself

To top the velvety soup she'll be serving, Giada set up a DIY toppings bar, complete with crispy bacon, croutons and olive oil, so that guests can make up their bowls just as they like them.

Colors of the Season

It's likely no accident that Giada's party-ready crostini are adorned in holiday hues: red and green.

Dessert Hour

No fewer than three varieties of sweet treats are on display at Giada's elegantly lit living room table.

Better Together

Perhaps the ultimate seasonal flavors — chocolate and peppermint — combine to create warming cups.

Setting the Scene

It won't be long until guests fill up Giada's house, which she's adorned with a towering tree fit for the season.
