    You can't imagine the season without the dishes your mother used to make or the decoration you've saved over the years. To you, holiday parties are about family time and nostalgia. You make everyone feel right at home with your menu of holiday standards and traditional red-and-green decor, but don't be afraid to create new customs. A fresh update to your grandma's garland or a new recipe with familiar ingredients will still honor past traditions.

    Your parties are chic, modern and outside the box. You love to keep your guests on their toes, using unexpected elements that will leave them buzzing about your party long after it's over. While it's fun to put your own spin on the holidays, don't avoid the familiar just for the sake of being different. After all, every guest enjoys the comfort of a few faithful traditions: Try mixing classic with your eclectic style by having a hot cocoa bar or a themed gift exchange at your next bash.

    To you, it's all about getting everyone together and having fun, avoiding stress by outsourcing food and taking a no-fuss approach to decor. While a laid-back attitude makes for a happier hostess, that doesn't mean you can't find fun and easy ways to personalize your party. Before this year's fete, get the kids involved and make cookies or create a centerpiece together. You'll get some family bonding time in — plus, you know better than anyone that perfection is overrated.
