Holiday Hosting a great party, with no mishaps, seems like a daunting task. With our help, you will host that event with confidence and ease. Here are three simple ways to be the talk of the town…in a good way.
- Send out invites with a start time and an RSVP. Expect your guests to respect your time. If they do not RSVP, call them. Knowing your guest list is a big part of your party’s success. Party-crashers are a part of the holiday hullabaloo…take it as a compliment if someone crashes your party rather than creating a Hollywood scene. White House Party Crashers
- Be sure to greet each guest at the door as they arrive. Sounds simple, yet many of us become preoccupied when that doorbell rings. An expert hostess is prepared and available to open the door, greeting guest by saying “I am so happy that you are here”!
- Keep your food simple, which if possible, perfect at room temperature. Making extravagant dishes will just create extravagant concerns. Finger foods are easiest to eat when standing and talking to others. There is a reason the Pillsbury Doughboy has been a favorite at the holidays.
Even the most well planned parties can be damaged by a manner mis-hap. Mother, May I understands that not everyone has had a visit with us…so if the party gets out of hand, be sure to keep your control and escort the bad “behavior” to a quiet room. Offer concern and listen to the complaint, then call them a cab or Uber.
