Holiday Party Planning Tips – If you are having a party with 50 or more guests, here are a few tips to keep the party planning fun and stress free-
Hire a planner to do a logistical walk-through at your home. He or she can advise on your layout, logistics, decor and recommend event professionals. The rate is hourly and it includes a summary report. Our clients love this service and we do it every year starting in November.
Hire a professional bartender to setup the bar and serve drinks.
Find a reputable local chef / caterer to handle the food. We love heavy appetizers served buffet style or tray passed.
Set the mood with really low-key lighting and votive candles. Make sure that you turn off overhead and bright lights.
Make sure that your furniture is positioned so it allows the guests to move easily.
If the weather is cold, rent a coat rack with hangers and place it in a nearby bedroom or hallway.
Select music that includes party favorites and popular holiday songs or hire a piano player to entertain if you own a piano.
Purchase cute take-out boxes for left-overs for your guests.
Hire a helper to handle the kitchen clean-up and maintain the restrooms.
Once all the details have been planned and executed, enjoy your party! XO, Gianna
