5 Tips to a Successful Holiday Party

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.

Keeping Your Family Close During the Holidays

The holidays are a time of togetherness, but it can be hard to achieve togetherness when your family lives in different places. We have some great tips for making the holidays a time of gratitude regardless of where you or your loved ones are. Here’s our advice for keeping your family close, even if they’re far in distance.

Make a List

The holidays are a hectic time for everyone. Regardless of how good your memory is, a list can be a helpful tool to make sure you don’t forget anyone.

Not only will lists help you remember who to send cards to, but also help you organize key events and gift ideas for each family member.



Give Yourself Enough Time

We know how fast time flies at the end of the year, don’t let it slip up on you. During the holidays it’s important to make sure that you’re ahead of the game.

When sending out holiday cards, we suggest ordering them a month in advance and heading to the post office two weeks before the big day.

Keep it Personal

In the age of technology, it can be very tempting to send an email or text to our loved ones. However, we know how special it is to receive a handwritten note or a call on the phone. These gestures not only foster a close relationship, they show your loved ones how much you value them.
