Maison Perrier-Jouët accompanies you in preparing these enchanting moments by sharing its guide for celebrating the holidays at home.
Let the décor match the mood
The holiday season is a conducive time for creating unique and memorable moments, and the decor plays an essential role in this experience. It has the power to enchant the celebration, infuse a particular magic, and make every moment unforgettable. The ambiance created by the decor must be carefully considered to align with the atmosphere one wishes to establish with the guests present.
By tending to the details of the decor, one can transform the space into a setting filled with warmth, elegance, and festivity. Whether through sparkling lights, seasonal color accents, or unique decorative elements, each choice contributes to creating an exceptional ambiance. It's an opportunity to unleash creativity and personalize the space to reflect one's own style and the spirit of the holidays.
Opt for elegant champagne bottles to complement your decor. Bottles from the Belle Epoque collection are adorned with Japanese anemones, echoing the close connection between Maison Perrier-Jouet and Art Nouveau. These cuvées will add a floral touch to your enchanting ambiance. This poetic and natural universe is presented by Perrier-Jouët with its campaign “Fill your world with wonder' to promote biodiversity."
Provide games and entertainment

Have a champagne toast
No holiday party is complete without a champagne toast. Toasting is a tradition that has seemingly been around forever, but where did it come from? Some historians believe it dates back to the 6th century BC in Greece, as a gesture of thanksgiving to the gods.
Maison Perrier-Jouët accompanies you in this tradition with its champagnes that are both delicate and complex. The Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Blanc de Blancs champagne is the ideal companion for exceptional celebrations. Its exquisite taste and elegance add a touch of refinement to any festivity, making each moment truly unforgettable.
Serve hors d’oeuvres
Allow your desires to express themselves, reconsider traditions, and craft your unique interpretation of the holidays. There's no need to strictly follow the conventional seated meal around a table with your guests.
In keeping with a more informal celebration, hors d’oeuvres and charcuterie boards are an excellent way to serve your guests.The perfect charcuterie board should include sweets like fruits, jams and chutneys. Savory elements like nuts, olives and crackers should also be present. Of course, meats are often the main attraction, so be sure to include salami, prosciutto and capriccio.
Finally, a delightful assortment of cheeses is essential to offer to your guests. Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Brut champagne pairs perfectly with noble cheeses such as mature comté, cheddar, and goat cheese. The House of Perrier-Jouët shares its expertise on these pairings with you.
The pairing of Perrier-Jouët's Belle Epoque Brut champagne with Comté, a cheese with a complex taste and multiple aromas, creates a harmonious gastronomic experience due to their complementary flavor profiles. The creamy texture and slightly nutty flavor of this cheese blend well with the liveliness of the champagne bubbles, resulting in a balanced combination on the palate.
The sophisticated pairing of this wine with mature cheddar will tantalize your taste buds. The slightly salty and rich notes of the cheddar are balanced by this cuvée from the House of Perrier-Jouët. To complete our cheese selection, we recommend goat cheese. This product is both fresh and light. The champagne, rich and vibrant, paired with this cheese, will offer a refined and enjoyable taste experience.
Perrier-Jouët also shares its expertly crafted recipes to complement your meal and delight your guests.
