There is no need to dread the holiday party season. Planning a holiday party does not need to be stressful and can easily be budget friendly. The key to any successful party is organization. Here are some tips for planning a great party this holiday season.
Pick the venue
If having the party in our own home is not an option, seek out a meeting space, a restaurant, or even a hotel. There are plenty of places that will even host small family gatherings. When using a venue there is no worrying about house cleaning and having people in your home. However, a home can be a lovely backdrop to a small intimate gathering.
Invitations set the stage
Invitations set the stage as to what to expect at the party. If the party is informal, send the invitations through email. A more formal affair requires an actual invitation. Make sure to include all the important information.
Keep decorations simple
Candles and a little greenery go a long way at the holidays. A few wreaths and ribbon and the decorations are complete.
The food does not need to be expensive or complex. Finger foods are always a hit. For a family event consider asking everyone to bring their favorite dish along with copies of the recipe to share.
Music sets the mood
Do not forget the music. Classical holiday tunes for a sit-down dinner or some upbeat stuff that will make people get up and dance.
