Get Your Holiday Party On!
'Tis the season for holiday parties! If you're in the midst of planning a special event to get all of your closest friends together, then we're guessing you could use a little help. We're here to make sure that you're on top of your party planning game and have the best party ever!
1. Pick a color scheme and roll with it.
Select two to three colors and incorporate them everywhere. Think invites, decor, food table, serving table... Everywhere!
2. One Festive Cocktail!
Keep things simple and make a batch cocktail. Mix all ingredients into a large dispenser (we love this one from Amazon!) ahead of time. Guests can grab a refill needed. Easy clean up. No need for a bartender!
1 part rhubarb & ginger gin
2 parts prosecco
1 part cranberry juice
1 splash tonic water
1 sprig rosemary (optional)
1. If measuring out enough for just one or two use a measuring jug so it can be easily mixed then poured into glasses. If you're making it for more people then try using a larger pitcher.
2. First measure out 1 part rhubarb and ginger gin followed by, 2 parts Prosecco and 1 part cranberry juice. Stir then pour into glasses, top each glass with a splash of tonic water and a rosemary sprig.
If your guests prefer something else, they can either request from your bartender or you can leave other options out for them to whip something up.
3. What's On The Menu
Potluck is the way to go if you ask us! Have your guests bring their favorite holiday appetizer or light bite and you'll be set with a full spread! If you want to provide something yourself, go with a simple charcuterie board.
4. Spruce It Up A Little
5. Plan an Activity
An activity is a fun way to keep guests entertained and make your party memorable.
We love a wine exchange! Have your guests come with a bottle of wine (priced less than $20/bottle) and leave with a different one.
We've created a simple checklist for you to use as a guideline in planning your festivities!
