CHRISTMAS PARTY PREPARATION TIPS: (According to Jennifer Brouwer)
– Make a list and Check it Twice: Plan all your Christmas tasks and actives ahead of time. Make lists so you have a clear picture of what you have what you need to create the look you want.
– Food Preparation: Bake those special treats in advance. Choose recipes you can make in advance and that freeze well. Invite your friends to take part in a cookie exchange; not only will you save time but you will have a fabulous assortment of goodies.
– Do it Yourself: Guests love and appreciate anything handmade so consider making a simple gift like an ornament guests can take home with them.
– The Bar: Will the bar be open? If so, consider offering a “Cocktail Menu” with a few different concoctions to choose from and print out the recipes as party favours.
– Setting the Table: Decide if the meal will be sit down, formal or informal. This will determine how you should set the table. Make sure you have the correct stemware, china and cutlery for the menu.
