Tips for Hosting Your Next Holiday Party

The holidays are here, which means hosting your next holiday party. Gathering family and friends for great conversation and delicious food is one of the best parts of the season, and we have the tips to make it a success!

Plan Your Holiday Party

To minimize the stress of having your home filled with guests (even if you’re excited to host them), is to plan. Start looking for recipes a few weeks out, and create a timeline for the day of the party. Don’t forget about dishes and serving platters!

Keeping a running list of items you need and writing a complete shopping list for all recipes can help minimize stress and increase the joy of hosting family and friends.

Prepare for a Stress-Free Holiday Party

One of the best ways to have a stress free holiday party is to pick dishes you can prepare ahead of time. Some dishes like cranberry sauce only get better one they’ve sat for a day or so, and others can be made then put in the oven to cook when needed.

By doing as much as you can ahead of time, you can minimize the work you need to do while guests are arriving, giving you more time to spend with them, instead of by the stove.

Decorate Your Home for the Holidays

One of the best parts about the holidays is decorating your home. (Right after family and friends, of course.) Whatever your style, there are ways to bring the holidays into your home to make it feel festive and ready for a celebration.

We love this decor from Blesser House!

If minimal is more your style, this is a beautiful way to decorate for the holidays without losing space and your design aesthetic.

Regardless of how much you prepare beforehand or the number of guests or the decor, remember to have fun. This is a beautiful time with family and friends celebrating the season, not a time to be worried!

Remember to be present, enjoy the evening, and remember that the most important thing is time with your guests. No one will remember if the pie was slightly burned, they’ll remember the conversations.
