Holiday parties are meant to be fun and happy. These parties are a way of saying ‘thank you’ to people who are part of your life and have contributed to some of your happy moments. So now it is your turn to give them a few happy moments and spend special time with them -your family and friends. Go ahead and plan a holiday party well in advance.
How To Plan A Holiday Party
Choosing The Holiday, The Invitees And The Venue
There are a number of holidays and each holiday has a different and separate theme, such as – a Christmas holiday party is a cocktail party, the Fourth of July party is a barbeque and pool party, Thanksgiving party is a dinner party. Once you know what theme your party is going to be, it is smooth sailing because now you must focus on planning it. Throwing a party is not the issue but the planning of the party will need minute attention.
List Of Things To Be Done
• Prepare your guest list.
• Next on list is the menu. Your guest list will help you decide on the menu, the range and quantity of food and drinks.
• The venue for the party is another important factor – whether you plan to hold the party at home or at some other place.
• Next comes the method of invitation – the options are plenty and mind boggling. Should you make hand-made invites or maybe send emails, or post your grand intention on your facebook page, or call up your invitees? Whichever way you wish to do it, invite your family and friends with the warmth and love you have for them.
Food And Drinks
With the exact idea of what you want to serve your guests and where, it should not be difficult to locate the source of food and drink supply. If you are already over worked at office, maybe you could seek some professional help, like a party planner or pull in a relative who has some experience of throwing extraordinary parties.
The party could be indoors or outdoors, your guests will need to sit somewhere during the course of the party – so comfortable seating arrangements must be done. Now if the holiday party is combined with the Christmas party, then you have to think of gifts and decorations for this special occasion. You will be glad you called in for extra help.
So now you are settled with the theme of the party, what food and drinks to be served, the venue of course, decorations and gifts if needed – so relax. A slight twist here to make it a unique party – you could send gifts wrapped with the invites, or hand written invites in scroll like papers, the choice is yours as to how you wish to put that stamp of uniqueness on your holiday party. It is good idea to send party favors in advance for a Christmas or Chanukah party. Have fun planning and have more fun with your guests, make merry and ensure each of your guests go home happy.
