Holiday Hosting Tips

What’s better than hosting a holiday party? Being a responsible host. Here are some easy tips for making sure everyone has a good time.

1.

Great parties don’t just happen –have a bit of a plan so things go smoothly

2.

Serve snacks so no one drinks on an empty stomach – tasty treats like meats, cheeses and breads.

3.

Be the equal opportunist. Have non-alcoholic options and mocktails available for those who aren’t drinking.

4.

Don’t rush the refills. Push the food, not the alcohol.

6.

Keep alcohol from being the focus of your party. Have lots of munchies and attention-getting entertainment like music.

7.

Call the cab yourself. Convincing someone to take a cab is a lot easier if the cab is already there – no waiting required.

8.

Don’t drink too much yourself. This way, you can have fun and be ready, just in case.

9.

Towards the end of your party, switch to non-alcoholic drinks.

10.

This goes without saying, but only serve guests who are of legal drinking age.
