Party On…..with these Top 10 Holiday MUST-do’s!



Who doesn’t love the holiday season?
Good music, delicious foods, being with family, and of course holiday parties.
I love to host holiday parties…..playing hostess and bringing people together for a celebration brings me the greatest happiness! Personally, I believe myself to be a party-master, so I thought I would share my 10 rules to hosting a successful holiday party!

  1. ToDo
  2. Plan early: Don’t try and plan a good party the weekend before. Put a lot of effort and dedication into your party! It will make the night more enjoyable for you and your guests.

  3. theme

  4. Choose a Good Theme: A theme can make or break your party! The use of a theme can help you guideline your entire party from the invitations to the party favors!

  6. Have your party on a Saturday: Your friends will appreciate having as much time as they need before hand to get ready, instead of having to rush after work on a Friday!

  8. Have a Set Music Playlist: Believe me, you do not want to spend the entire night playing DJ.  You also don’t want your dubstep-obsessed roommate from college taking over either!
    Make a long playlist with a good mix of songs that everyone can enjoy. Need some inspiring songs?
    Find all the songs above on Kali’s Holiday Music Playlist.

  12. Food, Food, and More Food: The more food the better! Make sure you have holiday foods that everyone can enjoy, not just foods that you enjoy.
    For an appetizer like no other, I recommend my Pastry Wrapped Baked Brie.
    Available at Whole Foods Market, California, it’s perfect for any party!
    3 delicious flavor varieties: fig jam/marcona almonds, sour cherry, and roasted garlic.

  14. Feeling Thirsty?: Make sure you have plenty of beverages for your guests (alcoholic AND non Alcoholic) – Pre-made drinks help keep the party flowing and then no one has to be bartender all night!

  16.  Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff: If someone spills on your couch or accidentally breaks a plate, take a deep breath and relax!
    Keep Calm and Party On!


  17. More than Less: Always remember it’s better to have TOO much than NOT ENOUGH!!!
