Hosting Stress-Free Holiday Parties!

Holiday parties are around the corner!  Tis the season now to learn the secrets for hosting a party stress-free. Colorado Party Rentals has a few tips to host the party of the year!

A Master To Do List

Treat throwing a party as if you are running a business.  Have a master to do list and include every task that needs to be accomplished.  Include the guest list, RSVP’s, shopping lists and updates throughout the process.  This master list will be your brain in coordinating your event.  Rely on it!

Specialty Concoction

Every party worth remembering offers a ‘specialty cocktail’ that leaves that lasting impression.   Serve in a chic glass or provide creative garnishes like a sprig of rosemary to make it festive.  A good general rule of thumb is to plan on one alcoholic drink per guest per hour.  If you are can’t afford a full bar, provide plenty of red and white wines along with a novelty cocktail. Think outside the box, freeze berries or mint leaves in your ice cubes for your cocktails, or different sized and shaped ice cubes for differing cocktails. Have fun with it!


Giving a small token of your affection shows your appreciation for your guests and is an unforgettable way to end a celebration. Dainty boxes of candy or baked goods add a personal touch. Small terracotta pots with herbs and flowers are an inexpensive and affordable centerpiece that double as a favor to guests as well.

Put Your Guests To Work

If you put your guests to work, it will make them feel as if they have a part in your party.  Call it your hospitality team. Give each of them someone to meet, and responsible for introducing to others. The bigger the party, the bigger your hospitality team!

Above All, Have Fun!

Most hosts tend to forget the purpose of the party- to have fun!  In the details of planning and executing an event, it is easy to get caught up in the logistics of coordinating your event, rather than remembering your guests!  Half an hour before the party begins, turn your attention to your guests and relax rather than trying to get everything done right.  Just focus on enjoying the party and have fun!
