‘Tis the season to party! The holidays can be stressful, and sometimes you just need to take a load off and have fun with some family and friends to celebrate the season. Whether if you’re going out or staying in, get-togethers don’t have to be just another thing on your to-do list for the holidays that add stress, but can be a fun and unforgettable time to spend with others. This year, let’s up the ante! With the winter holidays right around the corner, we have come to share the secrets to hosting a great and memorable party (one that won’t pile onto your holiday stress).
Choosing What Kind of Party:
Casual or high class? Dinner or drinks and snacks? The first step to planning a party is sorting out the element of the party, which all depends on the people you are inviting. A fancy party might not be everyone’s scene, and you don’t necessarily have to have the glitz and glamour to have a good time. You could even host a holiday party at the rink! Have a workout and some fun with your co-workers, family, or friends that no one will forget. For more information, check out our hours and packages.
Invitations and Decorations:
You could go for the simple route of creating an event on Facebook, or you could create some cute evites! They have templates so you don’t have to make the invites from scratch and you can customize them however you want! Decorations can be tricky and also can be pricey, but they don’t have to be. You can take a trip to the dollar store or Walmart and pick up some seasonal fake flowers and make your own arrangement using mason jars. Greenery and twinkly lights are also go-to holiday decorating staples. Cover your banister or mantel with a strip of greenery and a string of lights from the craft section and your home will instantly look like it’s out of a Hallmark Christmas movie.
Most Importantly … Food!
Food is what brings people together, but cooking can also cause a lot of stress in the kitchen. Don’t need to fret, turn your holiday party into a potluck event! Have your guests bring sides and desserts so you only have to worry about the main entree and drinks. Here are some drink recipes to try to add some holiday flavor to the night.
No matter what holiday you are celebrating, with these tips, it will be a memorable night that won’t give you any gray hairs. The most important tip of all is to surround yourself with people you care about and you’ll instantly have a great party.
