It's that time of year again, the holiday party season is upon us! Don't stress, embrace your inner event planner and have fun with it! Whether you are looking to hold a small and intimate event, or a large and luxe extravaganza, you have to do it right. Without further ado, here are our 4 tips to throwing the perfect holiday party.
1. Start With A Theme
Even the biggest holiday lovers can admit the same ol party can get boring. Come up with a theme and work from there. It can be anything you want, so get creative! We love the idea of a classy and unique 'Masquerade ball', or a beautiful 'White Christmas' theme. Once you've decided on your theme then you can plan your menu, decor, entertainment and favours based on that.
Amp up your event with some holiday themed activities! There are so many fun options you can do with this. If it's a small get together, you can do something as easy as secret santa's. A photo booth set up is always fun and a good take away for guests. You can get affordable props and accessories for guests to pose with!
3. Keep It Simple
Having a buffet and a do it yourself drink station means guests can help themselves, and less work for you. Make sure the bar is fully stocked with alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks, appropriate glassware, ice and napkins. Get all the drinks and food prepped and ready ahead of time, so all you have to do is put it out!
4. Get Some Help
Hiring professional bartenders, hostesses, servers, or entertainment such as dancers or a bad santa can not only make your life much easier, but add a lot of extra flare and fun to the party! If you don't want to worry about any of it, an event planner takes care of everything from start to finish.
Last but not least, have fun! If you are able to actually attend and enjoy your party, your guests are more likely to have fun too.
Happy holidays! xo
