‘Tis the season to celebrate with friends and family. Maybe you have a yearly party tradition or you want to start a new one. Here are a few tips to help you celebrate in style
1. Online invitations
You don’t have much time to hash out the details of your perfect party. Online invitations have come a long way from the early days when the designs were at best second-rate and the response system cumbersome. Today, companies like paperless post provide a great selection of designs and allow your guest to not only respond in a personal matter but easily enter the event into one of their online calendars.
I’m sure that by now you have heard of and possible tried the social media site “pinterest”. It’s a great place to get ideas and store inspiration for your home, hobbies, crafts and decorating ideas. One of the ways I love to use it is to plan parties. Seeing all your ideas together in one place allows you to envision the get-together before it even happens.
3. Alternative locations
If the thought of cleaning your home and getting it ready to receive guests keep you up at night, then think about hosting the part elsewhere. Or avoid it all together. You could either choose a party -ready venue or use your imagination and ask a local cafe, bookstore or meeting place if they would be willing to rent you the space for a few hours. It takes one more things off your to do list. And cleaning up after the party is also a breeze!
