It's that festive time of the year where families and friends gather together to feast and be merry. However, throwing a party at home is never easy. Often times, ordering food or a takeaway from a local favourite restaurant is the easiest way to save time and alleviate stress. For those with a bigger budget, a catering company or a chef is a popular go to.
But what makes a christmas house party memorable? We believe in the tiniest details. From the aesthetics to guests’ comfort, one must invest the time in planning these carefully.
When guests first come come through the door, setting the mood of the party is crucial. As they say, first impressions last. A little bit of organizing and decorating would go a long way. It lets your guests know that you appreciate them for coming. Whether it be table florals or pixie lights, they always go a long way!
Second step is making sure one has enough food and drinks. The more the merrier. You don’t want to run out of food and drinks in the middle of the party. Besides, any left over food can always be served for tomorrow or you can offer to your guests to take home some if they give their complements. Nowadays, this is normal. In fact, relatives won’t even hesitate.
Set up a well curated food buffet if you want the laid back kind of gathering. Hire long tables and chairs to make sure people have somewhere to eat and sit. Add the bar hire if you really want them on the dance floor at some point.
Third step is making sure you have some sort of entertainment to break the ice. Either a Dj or a playlist, hiring a sound system to ensure good music is a big YES. If you’re feeling a bit unique, getting a magician always tops the list. By the end of the evening, you’ll have everyone raving about your party until next year.
