Throwing a soirée during this holiday season is a great way to reconnect with friends and family as to ending 2016 on a good note. You don’t have to hire a party planner if it’s out of your budget, practice your event skills by being your own. Who knows? you could even enjoy it and throw in a business card for people to snatch after a successful party. Okay, getting ahead of ourselves now. These are questions you’re going to have to ask yourself when you’re planning for a night full of memories to put the icing off the year.
Is There A Theme Going?
Coming to the end of the year, you will need to clarify whether it’s a Christmas party or a New Years party. This will eventually help you pinpoint a date that is best for everyone and to fit the occasion. Suggestion: Margaritas under the Mistletoe (why not?)
How Many People Are Attending?
Is it a friends only event? Or are your family in on it too? Make a list of people you’re inviting and narrow it down to the ones who are most likely to come by.
Where Will This Party Be Held?
If you own a bachelor’s pad with a good amount of space that should simply do. Or, you could check out bungalows for rent on Air BnB. Find ones with a full-on backyard to make the most out of it.
Potluck Or Nah?
A potluck is always the way to go when it comes to anything last-minute. An assortment of food usually end up on the table when each and everyone contributes. If you’re planning for a sit-down dinner, then perhaps a catering would require a heads up way ahead of time. Try looking into food trucks instead, most food truck businesses usually do catering as well. Our favourite food truck: Curbside Cantina,

A playlist or pass around the AUX cord?
