Not having enough food and drink.
Food and drink are essential to any festive get-together. Having the correct number of guests plus any knowledge of any dietary restrictions (allergies, anyone?) are key. To add a jovial effect, you may want to consider a hot cocoa bar or champagne cocktails.
Not Having Any Entertainment
Adding a common activity brings everyone (even strangers) together. When I planned my company’s annual holiday party, our DIY photo booth was a hit! Don’t forget about music or a secret Santa gift exchange, too.
Not Adding A Personal Touch
From handwritten invitations to special invitations created on Paperless Post, you want to make sure every piece of the party is uniquely your own. Remember: it’s all about the little details that make a moment memorable.
Not Dressing For The Occasion
Simply dressing up for an event elevates an occasion. Keep the jeans and T-shirts at home and don something that catches the eye, such as a sparkly top or statement heels.
Letting Your Guests Leave Empty-Handed
Party favors are always appreciated by guests and subsequently keep the spirit of the party alive well after it is over. As a rule, party favors can never too big or too small, so whether it’s chocolates or a bottle of champagne, know it will be happily received.
