Family Christmas party tips for an unforgettable holiday
“Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas.” -Calvin Coolidge
Christmas can often add a little stress and craziness to our daily routine – all the shopping, gift wrapping, decorating, and the many commitments that start to add up since early December. Still, for many, it is truly the most wonderful time of year; a magical time when family and friends get together to share beautiful moments.
We want to help you make the best out of this season! Here are some ideas!
Choose the “Gift Strategy”
Are you going to give a personal gift to each one in your family or do you want to play Secret Santa? Both ideas are great, but the second one allows you to concentrate on one single gift, saving you some time and money. On the downside, you also get just one gift. Make this decision soon, communicate it to your loved ones, and let the shopping begin. Don’t splurge on things “just in case“, in the holiday shopping madness often there’s a buyer’s remorse. Besides, the most precious gifts you can give and get are the moments and company spent together, not the number of gifts.
Define a Christmas Party Theme
Modern metallic colors, classic red and green, or a white snowy Christmas. Whatever you choose, make sure to have all elements complement each other. That doesn’t necessarily mean you need to buy all new ornaments, but to decide which element to use and which ones to save for the next year. Even in these holiday times, less is sometimes more. Besides, there are always small things you can buy for a very low cost that can help make everything else work well together.
Make decisions about the party logistics
