Christmas Party Planning Guide
by: M Johnsona

Christmas is a favorite time of the year for many people. Why not take one night in December and set up a nice holiday party? Plan a small get together with family and friends.

It is a great excuse to get together. Plan it early in December so it doesn't conflict with all the Christmas Day events. Before you get too deep in the planning see how many people will be able to come. Then base your plan off that number.

I like to make it a simple potluck meal with everyone bringing part of the meal. Whatever works, then you can fill in the blanks.

All you need for a small get together is a few decorations, set the table and chairs up, refreshments, music and some fun games to play.

Try to set up a couple of different seating areas, so people can just sit and talk while others play games.

It is a great night and really is nice to see everyone while they are in the holiday spirit. Here is a short guide to give you some ideas of what a party entails:

1. Pick a night

2. Invitation phone calls

2. Plan food needs based on what others are bringing

3. Shopping for food, refreshments, decorations and games

4. Verify with phone calls 7 days prior to party

5. Clean house

6. Decorate and set up chairs

7. Any last minute cooking and food prep

8. Set table

9. Greet the guests

10. Relax and enjoy the Christmas Party, it is just a casual event.
