Don’t Underestimate Going Old-School
As technology advances more and more people are ditching paper invitations for emails or texts. However, when it comes to throwing a good party paper is by far superior to a computer. Everyone loves getting an invitation in their mailbox, and having a physical copy will make your guests more likely to remember your event.
Consider Having Your Party on a Weeknight
Scheduling during the holidays can be impossible. With family in town and Christmas and New Years on weekends this year, consider throwing your party on a more unconventional night. Not only will your guests be more likely to make the event, it will give them a breather between other events.
Prep Ahead of Time
The downfall of any great party is last minute preparations. Make sure to have your invites out at least a week ahead of time and all your supplies ready a few days before. When the day of the event does arrive, you’ll spend less time running around town and will be more prepared for last minute problems.
Make Your Meal Casual
Fancy dinner parties are fun, but they can also be stressful. For something a little easier, consider serving a family-style meal or hosting a potluck. You’ll be off the hook if dinner gets delayed and your guests will have more food options to choose from.
Don’t Forget to Follow Up
Throwing a great party isn’t just about the party itself, it’s also about making your guests feel appreciated. The best way to make sure they know how much you enjoy their company is to send them a thank you note. Not only is it a good practice, it will also remind your guests how much fun they had after the holidays are over.
