On one hand, the holidays are all about traditions. You and your family probably have some favorite recipes you like to cook up, or maybe it’s a trip to the tree farm or pumpkin patch. But just as much as holidays are about tradition, many have a drive to outdo themselves and try something new, to outdo the festivities of years past and make this holiday season the most memorable yet.
How can you outshine yourself this holiday season? The answer is simple: Think big. Don’t be confined to the usual food and drinks or games you do yearly. Think outside the box and include something that can add cheer to everyone’s holiday.
Here are some great ideas to jump-start your holiday party planning and take it to the next level.
1. Allow Guests to Vote on A Menu. Preparing a holiday meal is a labor of love, but even for small gatherings, it can be a real challenge to make sure you’re including things that everyone will love. Instead of dealing with the stress of trying to guess what everyone will like, why not create a voting card with two different entrée options for guest to vote on.
2. Drink in Style. To throw a truly stellar holiday party, there are some items you must have. The holiday season is about laughter and enjoying the company of your loved ones. Everyone has their preference of what beverage they love to enjoy but try adding Risata® Wine to your lineup. Since Risata® does mean “laughter” in Italian, you can’t go wrong with extra laughter and see everyone enjoying a delicious drink. My personal favorite is Risata® Red Moscato which is a sweet but refreshing red wine with juicy ripe raspberry, strawberry and nectarine flavors.
3. Focus on The Details. For many holiday get-togethers, it’s all about having the right plates and serving ware. For a reasonable price, you can easily rent fine china and exquisite glassware that will wow your guests. Best of all, you won’t have to spend a fortune on items you only use a couple of times a year!
