The most wonderful time of year is here. So, you know what that means. Bring on the trees, tinsel and loads of presents. But, what's a holiday without a really good party to celebrate? Seriously. There's no better way to ring in the joyous season with loved ones than with a really fun and joyous soiree. Are we right?

But, how do you have the ultimate festive fete? You know, one your guests talk about the entire next year? Don't worry, we're not going to make you think. We went straight to one of Hollywood's brightest stars, Anna Camp, to get the scoop

When she's not on set (whether that's on True Blood, The Mindy Project or Pitch Perfect), this beauty is relaxing and hanging out with her family—which she's especially excited to do this holiday season. So, what exactly will she be doing with her fam? We caught up with the actress at the Club Monaco flagship store opening in New York City to get her three rules for holiday entertaining.

Here's what she shared:

1. Get Really Good Alcohol: "Make sure you have a great holiday themed drink at any holiday party," she says. Whether you're into spiked eggnog or maybe something fancier like a special holiday-themed martini, giving your guests a fun cocktail upon arrival will start the night out right.

2. Wear Something Sparkly: "You have to wear something sparkly," she says. If you're the host, looking great is a must—all eyes will be on you! Our suggestion? Try a gold glitzy blouse with an embroidered skirt, fun stacking bracelets and chic (yet comfy) heels. Not a glitter kind of girl? That's okay, you can still pack major sparkle punch with simple accessories like necklaces and earrings, too.

3. Whip Out a Game:  The ultimate way to ensure your guests have fun? Play an old-school game "Always have a great party game," she says. "I'm thinking Twister this year!"

Great entertaining advice, Anna!
