MANDAUE CITY, Cebu — It’s the time of year again that we get to either attend or host gatherings with family members and friends to celebrate Christmas.

Just in case you haven’t even started making any plans. Here are some tips on how to do it.

Choose the right date

Make sure that your party date won’t coincide with any of your guests holiday plans. It’s always wise to plan early.

Find the right venue

It’s always easier and more convenient to host your Christmas party at home because you own the space.  But in case you want to have it in a restaurant or in another place, make sure to make early reservations.  Restaurants and other party venues are normally full this time of year.

Prepare a guest list

You may want to invite a lot of people to your party.  But before you do that, consider your budget and the capacity of the venue. You wouldn’t want to over invite, make your guests stay in a very crowded place and even leave some of them hungry.

Send out invitations

Since the holiday season is a busy time of year, make sure to send your party invites early or as soon as you are able to finalize the date and the venue. And don’t forget to get your guests’ confirmation to help in the headcount.

Plan a menu

If you are cooking, make sure to prepare just the right amount of food so you won’t tire yourself with the preparations. And prepare food and other yummy treats that your guests will surely love.

If you plan to buy from the outside, check the menu ahead of time and make an advance order, taking into consideration the number of guests who are coming.

Make sure that you don’t order too much or too little.

Plan the details

Pick a party theme and prepare the decors.  If you want to make your party more fun, make sure to also prepare some games and prizes. 

And if the budget would still permit, also prepare some party favors.  Personalized items or some beautifully wrapped home-made cookies will surely be appreciated by your guests.

So, what are you waiting for? Start planning now since you only have a few days to go before Christmas.
