With so much going on during the holidays, planning the perfect Christmas party may seem impossible or at the least too daunting to attempt. If you take a little time to plan and prepare ahead, you will see much smoother results with less stress.  

Here are a few tips to help you pull off a flawless holiday party!

1. Theme parties are always fun!
Get creative, plan a party around your favorite holiday movie. “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” “Polar Express,” and “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” are a few memorable holiday movies.

You could even transform your party space into a magical winter wonderland, complete with “falling snow.”

2. The Perfect Invitation
The right holiday invitation is an important element of your holiday festivities. It sets the tone, introduces the theme and asking for an R.S.V.P,  will give you a more accurate headcount before the day of your event. Make sure to purchase customizable invitations for an added personal touch. Your invitation then becomes a keepsake your guests will cherish for years to come. Here are some great ideas for customizable Holiday invitations.

3. Keep your guest list intimate
Think about the people in your life that mean the most. A more intimate Christmas party makes the other details of the party, like the menu, a little more easy to manage, letting you focus on spreading holiday cheer! A smaller guest list also, allows you to add some extra personal touches that will WOW your guests, like turning a popular holiday candy into guest place cards.

4. Plan an EASY and impressive menu
You can begin preparing your menu items ahead of time. Your Christmas Party is only one of a long list of items on your plate, and appetizers are a great way to impress your guests in one tasty bite. Don’t feel bad about cheating a little with grocery store shortcuts; chances are your guests will never know.

5. Send a customized Thank You Card
Your guests probably had a million invitations this holiday season, and they took the time to make your holiday party a priority. Send them a Thank You card. Include a personal note, thanking them for taking the time during such a busy season or thank them for the wonderful hostess gift they brought. Here are some beautiful, customizable, Holiday thank you cards, with a quick turn around.

Your guests have the same goal during the holidays as you, to spend as much time enjoying friends and family as possible. The most important detail to any holiday party is making sure your guests feel warm, welcomed and included. Creating a unique experience doesn’t hurt either.

Just remember, prepare a little every day, and when it's time for your holiday party, it will be memorable, magical, and filled with holiday cheer!
