It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Three days after Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux picked up a 10-foot Noble Fir at Mr. Greentrees in Beverly Hills, the engaged actors hosted their annual tree trimming holiday party in Bel Air, Calif. on Sunday, Dec. 8. This is the third consecutive year that they have picked out a Yuletide conifer together.
A source tells E! News exclusively that the party began promptly at 6:30 p.m. with valets parking cars inside the gates of Aniston's massive estate.
Each tree was decorated with white twinkle lights, which were also used to outline the roof of her home.
The event was full of famous faces.
Courteney Cox, Chelsea Handler, Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin, Robert Downey Jr., Kathryn Hahn, Jason Bateman, Tobey Maguire, Isla Fisher and Will Arnett were just some of the 50 guests who showed up. "The party was held outside on a cold night," the source reveals. "Everyone was bundled up in jackets and scarves to stay warm."
Guests huddled around fire pits as they checked out the 360 views of the city. "It was a mix of Jen's friends and Justin's friends all coming together to celebrate the season."
Aniston looks forward to hosting the get-together each year. "It's definitely Jennifer's favorite party of the year and something she looks forward to," the source tells E! News. "The house was decorated beautifully and all of the white lights were stunning. Jennifer made sure every detail was perfect."
The We're the Millers star and the Rock of Ages screenwriter—who spent Christmas with in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, last winter—didn't have to worry about partygoers overstaying their welcome. "People stayed for several hours and began to leave around 9:30 p.m.," the source says.
Sounds like a merry evening!
