4 Reasons to Have a Holiday Party

November 19, 2014 by Ashley Willis

I absolutely love the holiday season! This is the time of year everyone is coming together to celebrate the holidays and the year ahead. In addition to these annual celebrations, it’s the best time of year to play hostess of your very own party! Maybe you’re not sold on hosting your own holiday party this year, but I have four reasons why you should…

Everyone You Love, Together in One Place. There are so many different networks of people in our lives. Our friends, co-workers, family, neighbors … and the list goes on! A holiday party is one of the celebrations we don’t to limit our guest list, we can have them all over to celebrate the year. It’s also the perfect opportunity to have all these different groups of people meet one another and in a casual setting.

It’s Too Cold, Stay In Around the Fireplace. An always obvious, perfect excuse for a get-together in the home… it’s just too darn cold to walk from restaurant to bar, and then to hail a cab. Skip all that and forget braving the chilly winds. Guests, and of course you, get to cozy up in front of a fireplace with a cocktail. No fireplace? No worries, a dining room table with a few candles will do just as well!

An Excuse to Get Dressed Up. Between your work schedule, family schedules, the gym, errands – you could use an excuse to get dolled up! Treat yourself to a blow out and a new red dress for your party or a friend’s holiday party. We don’t always get the opportunity to glam ourselves, so use this as your excuse!

Grown Up Slumber Party with Mimosas in the Morning!  With all those holiday cocktails, champagne, wines and beers now would be a good excuse for an old fashion slumber party! Keep some local cab numbers handy for guests, but also leave some blankets and pillows nearby for those looking to spend the night. The best party about a grown up slumber party, is the morning! Wake up to have bagels and mimosas! See our mimosa bar how-to and DIY bloody mary bar for inspiration.

Thinking about hosting your own holiday party yet? I know it’s a lot of work, but it’s always worth it! Don’t be afraid to ask friends or family for a helping hand, and when someone offers to bring something, accept! Have a happy, healthy and safe holiday season!!
