How to Throw a Holiday Party in a Hurry!
Whether you’ve suddenly found yourself in charge of the annual office shindig or are just a little late to the holiday season, we’ve got all the tips you need to plan a festive holiday party in a hurry!
Deck the Halls
If you don’t have time to trim the tree, stick to simple decorations to brighten up your party. Skip the hooks and nails and turn classic Christmas lights into a unique centerpiece! Simply add some ornaments and place in a vase or jar you have on hand, or even a bed of pine needles. This and a few well placed pine-scented candles and your guests will be feeling merry!For another easy fix, just buy a few Santa hats and other festive accessories so guests can add some holiday cheer as they walk through the party!
Baby It’s Cold Outside
Renting a space is not an option when you’re short for time, but hosting from your home or office can be just as jolly! If you’re working with a small space, rearrange your furniture to create an open floor plan for your guests. Winter weather means guests will be wrapped in layers, so make sure you have somewhere for them to keep their coats.
Making Spirits Bright
Wine is a great option for any holiday party because it’s a general crowd-pleaser, and requires no extra time on your part. Stock both red and white and you’ll have the added bonus of drinks to match whatever type of food you’re serving. If you’ve got some extra ingredients on hand, you can pump up the festive feeling by making this simple mulled wine.
For something non-alcoholic, try a Hot Chocolate Bar, equipped with toppings like marshmallows, peppermint, and cinnamon. If you’re really pressed for time, have your guests make their own with a hot water pitcher and packets of instant mixes!
Peace on Earth
Having a game plan for the after party is a must! Soaking dishes during the party will help cut down on cleaning time later. Save yourself the hassle of too many leftovers by providing your guests with to-go boxes to take leftovers with them. Try these festive ones from Amazon.
Now that you’ve got the guide to throwing the perfect party, it’s time to get shopping! You’re in luck, if you order from your favorites this week you can still get your goodies by Christmas!
