If you have not, don't worry! Here are some useful tips:
1. Gather The Right Info
Try to get most of the information for your party as soon as possible. You can try to confirm details soon, such as:
- How many guests (adults and kids) would be attending
- Which location
- Date and time
- Christmas menu items
- Christmas party decorations
2. Create a Plan
It would help you greatly if you stay organised, and work along timelines. Start by creating a timeline to match different items to be checked off, such as invitation, booking for food delivery, venue etc.
3. Choose a Theme
Parties that are memorable usually have a theme. So you can consider if you'd like to have a Christmas theme. It can be super simple, such as deciding on a color theme or style.
After deciding on the theme, you will naturally know which type of decorations, food and desserts to get!
4. Food & Dessert
Yes, there are still a lot of caterers who fulfill orders with 3 days time; but still, order early in case their slots are full!
If there are going to be quite a handful of children in the party, don't forget to include some non-spicy, kids friendly food in the main menu. You can also prepare some individually packed snacks or cookies for them!
Oh! Don't forget our DIY cookie set - it allows the kids to have some creativity in decorating their cookies, and the adults can have some time relaxing!
There are also a lot of free coloring printables online - print them out and give the kids some color pencils for coloring!
5. Stay calm and keep your cheer! :)
Planning for parties or dinners last minute can be stressful, just keep in mind the fun time that's about to come! That's what holidays are all about :)
Wishing you a very blessed time together with your loved ones this holiday season!
