As Christmas approaches, many people are gearing up for holiday traditions. Some people go all out when it comes to decorations, while others make homemade gifts or bake obsessively. One thing many people do to celebrate the holiday is attend a Christmas party. You may even want to host a party yourself. Here are three tips to help you throw a memorable holiday party without putting a lot of stress on yourself.
Turn It Into a Contest
If you’re looking for an easy way to entertain your guests, encourage them all to wear Christmas clothes. Throughout the evening, have guests vote on the best ugly Christmas dress and crown the winner at the end of the party. Guests get bonus points if they also use Christmas accessories.
Ask Each Guest To Bring a Dish
You may get stressed out if you try to supply all of the food for the party by yourself. Cooking the food yourself can be both costly and time-consuming, and catering may be an expense you can’t afford. Turn the party into a potluck by asking each of your guests to bring a dish to share. Not only will this reduce your stress, but it also gives you the chance to sample a lot of different foods. You may even find a new favorite!
Play Christmas Music
Playing Christmas music in the background is a great way to put your guests in the festive spirit. You don’t want to blast the music so guests can’t hear each other, but using it as soft background noise can create a festive atmosphere.
Throwing a Christmas party should be fun instead of stressful. Using these three tips can help you throw a memorable party that won’t cost you a lot of time or money. Get into the Christmas spirit and start planning your party today!
