Party Planning Pointers: Thanksgiving and Christmas Parties and Tips
Hosting a fabulous party is not as difficult as you might imagine. It does require forethought and planning. Part of the trick is having gorgeous decorations because
they really get people in the mood to have a good time the moment they arrive. No matter what is going on in their life, it's just hard not to be happy when you
walk into a home that is beautifully decorated.
Make your table setting as inviting and colorful as you can. It just helps people enjoy the food more and helps they enjoy good conversation with the other
Here are a few more pointers
- While you are still planning your party, talk to your guests and get their feedback on what kind of party they would enjoy attending.
- Keep a folder of ideas and lists that you gather. Cut out photos from magazines of decorations that "wow" you. Save them in the folder. Do this for recipes too.
- Since there are usually a few vegetarians at your party, be sure to accommodate them with plenty of veggies or other meatless selections.
- Don't be the perfect hostess with everything done and in it's proper place. Guests like the more casual atmosphere of a hostess that's still involved in the
preparation. They often love to help out.
- Stock up on kid-friendly movies to keep the young ones entertained. Have some good board games available that they them involved. Even a good jigsaw puzzle can keep
the entertained and quiet. There nothing that will frazzle your nerves more than other people's kids misbehaving in your home. Don't let it happen.
- Be happy. Happiness and contagious. Your expressions of love and generosity will be appreciated and will make up for anything that isn't quite right.
