Must Haves for a Great Holiday Party
Christmas is just around the corner and holiday party season has officially begun. Are you planning on hosting an event for your family and friends? We have compiled a few must-haves for a great party!
Seasonal Music. Nothing sets the mood for a Christmas party like the perfect music. Music streaming apps like iTunes and Spotify typically have pre-made playlists which makes finding the perfect music easy.
Food. Food is always the most important part of every party. If you are not serving a full meal, consider making easy appetizers and Christmas-themed desserts. Bloggers like Martha Stewart will have easy recipes to impress guests.
Entertainment. If you will have kids at the party, plan on organizing some Christmas movies and games to keep them entertained. The Santa Clause, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Home Alone, and A Christmas Story are classics. Incorporate Christmas into traditional games liked holiday-themed charades.
Gift Exchange. Gift exchanges like Secret Santa and White Elephant are popular around the holidays. Let your guests know you will be doing a gift exchange, settle on a budget for the gift, and start trading gifts when the guest have all arrived!
Decor. No party is complete without decor. Christmas decorations can easily be store bought or made. We suggest decorating a few areas of the house with fresh evergreens to add some visual ambiance and to bring the smell of the outdoors inside.
We wish you the best of luck hosting your Christmas party. Happy holidays from the Taylored Restoration team!
