"The holiday season is a perfect time to reflect on our blessings and seek out ways to make life better for those around us."
Throwing an intimate holiday party can be a daunting task. But when your guest have a fun time, it can be gratifying. From delicious food to event decorations and exciting activities, you want to ensure that every aspect of the event goes off without any issues.
If you don’t know how to throw a holiday party, we have some great tips that will keep your visitors entertained all through the event. But you need to consider some essential things. Who should you invite? When can you send your invites? What kind of entertainment food can you serve? This may sound like a lot of work, but if you stay organized, you’ll do okay.
Most holiday parties depend on the theme. If you’re throwing a stylish, alluring get-together, you may need to set up a gingerbread house decor area or a carol karaoke. But there are specific party activities that suit all holiday events—like taking pictures.
You can set up a base for photos. Who doesn’t love taking pictures these days? Get a Polaroid camera; you can also get things like large sequin bowties, antler headbands, plaid ties, and more. Creating a printout and frame sign like “take your holiday photos here,” is also a great idea.
Remember, it depends on what the partygoers will like. If your guests enjoy playing games, get a lot of board and card games on hand. Also, you can set up a dance floor with amazing music for your guests.
Holiday parties are exciting, but it requires a lot of work. Preparing the perfect food for your guests may take a lot. Instead of a meal with different courses, prepare a more simple meal of appetizers so your visitors can snack on.
Further, keep things simple and light by serving cheese boards, crudités, finger foods, chips and dip, and so much more. What’s more, there are some less-than-party-friendly recipes to avoid. Steer clear of sauce and avoid foods that need a fork.
If you don’t have enough cash to have an open bar, then select a “signature drink." You don’t need to spend a lot of money on different types of alcohol. Rather, devise a signature cocktail that suits your theme. By doing this, you’re only buying one or two kinds of alcohol.
If it’s a New Year’s party and you need a bottle of champagne, providing a champagne cocktail will make a bold statement than a straight bubbly.
Say Thank You
Did anyone come from far away to your holiday party? Did your siblings, mom, dad and other relatives spend days helping you so you could have a successful holiday party?
Remember to say thank you. Also, giving them a thank-you card will do the trick nicely.
