Holiday Party Planning

Holiday Party Planning

'Tis the season to have a party and invite all your family and friends to celebrate the holidays with you. Have a family day and decorate the entire house with
holiday party decorations. Your family will enjoy how festive the home is before and after the holiday party.

When decorating, make sure you have all the party supplies that you will need before the actual party day.  Plan out the food and drinks you will be serving.  Make a list of everything you need to purchase to help get you ready. If you are preparing any new dishes or appetizers, try them out in advance on your family and neighbors. You want to have all the quirks of any new recipes worked out before your party. It is a nice idea to give each of your guests holiday party favors as a token of your appreciation for them attending your party. Choosing the perfect favors for your party can be a way to cleverly tie in the
holiday theme with your own individual touch. 

Bring a festive holiday party atmosphere to your party with holiday party music and lights. For the music, select a few of your favorite holiday albums to play so you can have some variety. It is fun to gather your guests together to sing old favorites. For the lighting, you can string lights on both the inside and outside of your home. You can also cluster some holiday scented candles together for a dramatic lighting effect. 

Have the smell of holiday cheer in the air.  Simmer cinnamon sticks on the stove to provide the holiday scent.  These provide a pleasant holiday aroma to your home. Plan some
holiday party games that will excite and engage all of your guests. You can have fun holiday party prizes for the winners of the games.
