Haven’t you ever wondered why your grandparents still look back, remembering the parties they hosted when you were little? Or why your parents remember every detail of a holiday party they attended in 2001? It was a very good party, indeed.

Planning a party that shows off the soul and spirit of the holiday season is difficult.

Even if you think of everything and plan the holiday party right down to the tiniest detail, chances are people will find something else to talk about the next day.

From cookie exchanges and gift swaps, to late night games of bingo and formal tux events, there’re numerous ideas you can use to plan a good holiday party. If you want people to host the party of the year however, follow our expert advice!

Invite Your Guests by Sending Beautiful Invites

You’ll want to know how many people are going to attend your party, so the arrangement and planning can be done accordingly. It doesn’t matter if the holiday party is arranged on a small or big scale, knowing an accurate head count is going to help – a lot. Plus, your guests will feel extra special if you invite them by sending a festive card.

Choose a beautiful design for the invitation card and send them at least one week before the event. Ask them to RSVP. This will help in arranging the seating area. To keep a track of your guest list, send online invitations.

Keep Conversations Flowing Between Guests

How guests interact with each other depends on how well the host deals with every person. It falls on the host to create a comfortable environment for smooth conversations between guests.

It’s likely that your guests are complete strangers to one another; therefore conversation will be stilted at first. Break the ice by mentioning a common subject between the two when introducing.

Group Activities Must Be Planned With Caution

Thinking of keeping a planned group activity as primary entertainment?  Orange County based event planning service, James Events caution hosts when it comes to planning entertainment.

Take cue from the type of party you’re planning, and the attending guests.

Yes, most holiday parties are centered around good music, food, and company alone; but it doesn’t hurt to plan entertainment that people will be comfortable participating in.

Make Sure To Connect With Guests

What is the ultimate party tip?

Make sure you’re the perfect ‘all-round’ host. Listen to your guests, keep the wine flowing, and don’t let awkward silences reign.
