Host your festive party with ease and style this year!

If you’re prepping the house and planning the menu for friends, family, neighbors, and distant relatives, you may be feeling more than a little stressed. If so, it’s important to remember that this is supposed to be one of the most joyful times of year (believe it or not!), so it’s best to make the most of it. Before you stress out at the thought of hosting a party, use these tips to help you throw your best one yet!

Write it Down

Make a list of all the people you’re going to invite, the date, the menu, and the selection of drinks that you plan to serve so that you know what ingredients to get and bottles to buy. By having a visual list of the people that you’re inviting, it will help to ensure that you purchase enough supplies for the night, as well as keep you on track with following up on invitations.

Set the Theme

Are you hosting a laid-back get-together or a swanky cocktail party? Decide on how formal you’d like the party, and set the tone accordingly. For example, you may opt for a buffet table instead of a sit-down meal, and wine and beer instead of champagne and cocktails.

Set the House

As the guests enter, you’ll want to ensure that they have a place to hang up their coats with ease. As you greet them, provide them with a drink and usher them into the heart of the house to meet and mingle.

Relax and Enjoy

It’s your party, too! Take time to mingle, eat, drink, and relax with your guests!
