Preparation, presentation and the right choice of attire are among the key things to remember if you want to throw a perfect Christmas party. Here are some holiday party preparation tips for hostesses who want to host an unforgettable holiday event:
Stress is inevitable with all the preparations needed for hosting a Christmas party but don’t make this an excuse to wear a sloppy outfit. Pre-plan the clothes that you will wear ahead of time. Go for a dress that is best suited for your shape and style. Make sure that your outfit is functional enough to allow you to easily move between your guests. Pair your dress with a strand of pearls or a jeweled cuff bracelet, along with an evening sandal or fashion pump. Look spectacular with a well-applied red lipstick and a confident smile.
Dress up your house to reflect the holiday spirit. Deck the halls with garlands of fresh greenery and vintage decorations. Spritz the pine cones with cinnamon-scented oil and light scented candles. Let your creativity work to create an atmosphere that evokes the Christmas season.
Prepare the food before you expect guests to arrive so you will have ample time to dress yourself then entertain people once they arrive. If you’re preparing the food yourself, make sure that you bake the special treats ahead of time. Choose recipes you can make in advance that freeze well. Decide if the party will be a sit down, formal or informal event so you will know how to set the table. Make sure you use the correct china, stemware and cutlery for your menu.
Soft music can set the tone of your party and get your guests in the mood for fun. You can compile your playlist ahead of time but if you want to make the celebration extra special, consider hiring a musician to entertain your guests.
