If you are concerned about the time and work involved, relax!  Most often the point of the party giving is enjoyment and that begins with you.  The key to a relaxed gathering is to think everything through beforehand; don't do more than you can handle with ease (or at least with careful planning).  

To begin, how good a cook are you?  Be honest with yourself.  Do you like to cook?  How many people can you comfortably accommodate in your house or apartment?  And how much leisure do you have to devote to actual preparation?  These are important questions.  

Remember that even if you have an extremely busy schedule and don't particularly like to cook, you can still have a successful party just tailor the plans to realities of your time and ability.  Ignoring those two factors has probably stymied more efforts than anything else.  The idea is for you to enjoy yourself along with your guests!  Doing what you can do well with style and moderate ease almost guarantees good results.  

Another important point is to do everything you possibly can before guests arrive from making salad dressing to preparing the dessert and setting the table the day before.  Lastly, make the house look cozy and inviting with a warm and festive feeling by dimming the electric lights and lighting a few candles to help create a mood.  Also, add a few of the rich scents associated with the holidays.  With a little thinking and planning ahead, you will entertain with style and ease.
