ADVICE FOR HOLIDAY HOSTING
Hospitality tips & tricks for hosting during the holiday season.
Our team is bringing insight, tips & tricks, and ways to be the perfect host this holiday season. Whether you’re inviting friends over for a cocktail party or planning a sit-down dinner with our catering with our Paramount Events team.
TIPS FROM OUR TEAM
PLAY A GAME
Whether you’re catching up with familiar faces or trying to break the ice with new people, we recommend a game or two. This invites guests to mix & mingle together.
KEEP IT SIMPLE
It’s easy to get carried away when decorating for a party. Less is more. We recommend using a simple linen and fresh, seasonal greenery.
TAKE THE TREATS TO GO
Instead of setting up an elaborate dessert station after dinner, consider a mini sweets table for guests to enjoy on their way out the door.
HAVE OPTIONS FOR EVERYONE
Vegan, non-dairy, and gluten-free options are always a must. Ask your guests about dietary-restrictions prior to planning your menu.
TURN UP THE TUNES
What’s a party without music? Get your speakers charged up and ready to go. Create a playlist with a mix of holiday classics along with current top hits to get guests dancing!
MAKE A SIGNATURE COCKTAIL
Spruce up your evening with a fun cocktail that’s perfect for any holiday fare. We recommend serving a zero-proof option, for those not partaking in the consumption of alcohol.
Pro tip: Pre-batch your drink in a beverage dispenser for a great visual component at your party.
