Christmas Party Planning Tip #1

Before ordering invitations and polishing your best flatware, set a budget for your Christmas party to make it a success within your means. It’s easiest to think of the key expenses in terms of before, during and after the party.

Before the Party

  • Creative invitations
  • House cleaning service or book a venue
  • Holiday decor, centerpieces and favors

During the Party

  • Food or catering
  • Beverages
  • Entertainment

After the Party:

  • Tips for vendors
  • Thank you notes
  • Cleaning service
