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
After a while, even the most die-hard holiday enthusiasts can become jaded with throwing or attending the same old party. Get those creative juices flowing and come up with a theme! It can be anything you want, so go crazy! A 'Masquerade ball' would be unique and classy or how about a beautiful 'White Christmas'? Once you've decided then you can plan your menu, decor, entertainment and favours around that.
2. Organize Activities & Great Entertainment
Make your event more festive with some holiday themed activities! There are plenty of fun options to choose from. If it's a small gathering, you can do something as simple as secret Santa's. A photo booth is always a hit and guests will love the keepsake photos. You can get affordable props and accessories for guests to pose with! Or you could try out a holiday-themed activity like carolling or gift wrapping competitions.
Added fun tip: invite your guests to dress up! Putting a twist on the traditional 'cocktail party' can be so fun and entertaining! Ask everyone to dress up, according to your themed event of course! You'll be surprised how creative people can get.
3. Have Fantastic Food & BeveragesNo party's complete without food! And what better time to eat a little extra than the holiday season? You can plan your menu according to the theme of your event or just go for something traditional in red and green. You can opt for a buffet to help you control costs and keep things simple! A hot chocolate bar is always a hit, especially if it's a cold winter night. Alternatively, you can have drinks stations set up all around the venue so guests can walk around and find what they like best!
4. Hire The Pros
If things are becoming too much to handle or you simply don't have time to plan the details of an amazing party then there's no shame in hiring a professional planner. And of course, what would an event be without event staffing services? Hiring professional models, brand ambassadors, bartenders, hostesses, servers, or entertainment such as dancers or even a bad Santa, can not only make your life much easier, but add pizazz and fun to the party!
