Holiday Themed Parties!
I don’t know about you, but the colder it gets outside, the less I want to leave the house to do anything! With the holidays approaching there’s more to do than the classic holiday cocktail party with friends and family or even co-workers. Here’s some ideas on what to do instead:
Ornament decorating - Get some friends together and purchase some plain ornaments for everyone. You can find some at Michaels here. Then supply everyone with some paint, glitter, stickers, etc. the options are endless! Throw in some cocktails and food, you’re sure to have a good time. Everyone then goes home with their own party gift to display for holidays to come.
Host a “cookie night” - I do this every year with my mom, her best friend, and my best friend. We each bring our own cookie dough and make at least 2 types of cookies each. All the while drinking wine and eating pizza of course. When it’s all over we each go home with boxes of Christmas cookies just in time for our other holiday parties!
Ugly sweater party - This is a personal favorite! It turns into a big laugh when you see all of your guests come in with the ugliest holiday sweater they can find. Once everyone is all together you can vote on who has the ugliest sweater. Winner gets a prize! It’s guaranteed to bring in laughs and some great photo opportunities.
Tried these options? Send us your photo, we’d love to see and feature!
