Do you remember this post? Well my party tips still ring true for any Christmas/Holiday parties you might have lined up for the next couple of weeks. So I went ahead and made a few minor adjustments appropriate for this holiday season. As we do in fact near the most celebrated holiday in the world, we’re all either attending a party or hosting one (like us). Whichever of the two groups you fall into, chances are, you need a festive outfit for the occasion.
Tip #1: Don’t go overboard.
How embarrassing is it to show up at a party overdressed or underdressed? Kind of mortifying if you ask me and I like to stand out but not that much. If you are likely to fall victim to this blunder, try asking the host what the attire is or asking your friends what they’re wearing to the party. Even go as far as scheduling a friendly shopping trip with some of the guest list. Which leads me to my next tip…
Tip #2: Think Outside the Box.
This holiday season doesn’t have to have a limited selection on color options. Let’s face it, you don’t want to look like a Christmas present (unless that’s the look you’re going for). Be creative when it comes to assembling the look for the night. Think jewel tones, metallic’s, or sequence.
Note: It’s cold outside, so consider keeping warm and healthy by donning on a cute coat!
Tip #3: Offer your help.
I can only imagine the stress that comes with planning a fabulous soirée. With planning comes anxiety and not to mention the expenses. That’s when you should offer your assistance, either arriving early to help decorate, bringing an easy snack or preparing some pre-made drinks. Try this simple drink recipe, the Peppermint Kiss:
11/2 oz. Godiva Liqueur
1/2oz. Peppermint Liqueur
Stir over ice in a in rocks glass. Garnish witha sprig of mint.
Tip #4: A hostess gift is thoughtful.
Not mandatory but considerate. It’s a good way to acknowledge all the hard work that the hostess did; both the time and money spent. Try a bottle of wine (Ménage a Trios is both delicious and affordable), a small house plant, or a freshly baked Christmas cookies.
Again, I hope I was helpful in some way. With these tips, get prepared for a fabulous Holiday season!
