As the holiday season approaches, people’s thoughts turn to office parties and family reunions. As a successful Atlanta event rental company, we have accumulated these useful tips on throwing a great holiday party that doesn’t break the bank.
Have your guests bring their favorite holiday dish – ideally a traditional food item that they make themselves. Hosting a potluck holiday party will spare you from spending hours in the kitchen doing all the cooking for the party. Additionally, your guests will have a chance to showcase their cooking or baking prowess and enjoy their time in the limelight as well.
Serve a winter cocktail that you can prepare ahead of time so you don’t have to make one for every guest during the party, or have mulled wine at the ready for your guests to help themselves to throughout the evening. For everything else, ask your guests to bring their favorite bottle of wine to share, especially if their favorite vintage comes with an interesting story.
Have everyone bring a tasteful gag gift to the party worth $5 or less just for fun. The gift that elicits the most laughter gets to take home a small prize.
The Colors of the Season
Instead of decorating your party space with typical holiday colors, create a blank canvass (all-white) or stick to a minimalist decor, but have your guests come in their brightest, most colorful holiday finery. This way, you create a moving tableau of colors instead of a static display of the usual holiday decorations.
No matter how you choose to stay within your budget this holiday season, don’t forget to have a merry time!
