JLo’s Christmas Party With Ben Affleck Was All About Love and Hummingbirds

J.Lo and Ben Affleck’s holiday celebrations had everyone talking this year. Not only did the newlyweds share a sweet smooch at their star-studded Christmas party, but the couple also centered their holiday theme and style around the idea of the hummingbird.

The Marry Me star, 53, revealed in her latest On the JLo newsletter that she chose the hummingbird as her holiday theme because of its deep meaning in her life.

“To me, hummingbirds are messengers of love,” Lopez wrote. “… They’re also the fastest bird but they always have time to stop, eat something sweet and smell the roses. I identify with them, but more than anything whenever I see one, I feel like it’s a sign from God that everything is going to be OK.”

In honor of the special theme, Lopez decorated her Christmas tree with silver and gold hummingbirds and teal blue ornaments and wore a beautiful Gucci dress with teal blue and red ribbon motifs for the occasion. The collar and cuffs on the dress were white with a flower motif, which she complemented with white floral earrings and red, patent leather ankle-strap platforms.

Lopez and Affleck, have been married since July and have been celebrating their union with family and friends. For the holiday season, they threw an extravagant bash at their Los Angeles home, where they sang Christmas carols, danced, and enjoyed the company of their loved ones.

In a video from the party, Lopez was captured leading the crowd in a sweet rendition of “Jingle Bells,” and holding the microphone out to those gathered around. Affleck also got in on the fun, taking over the mic for a performance of John Legend’s “By Christmas Eve.”

Lopez said of her special evening, “For the past 8 years we’ve been doing a Christmas Edition Taco Tuesday, where we get together and dress up and sing Christmas carols. This was the first time in a long time we were able to get together with people that we haven’t seen in forever. The party was filled with family, friends, colleagues, and people we’ve known from over the years. We sang and danced and had the most amazing time.”
