The holidays are here and with them come the get-togethers and parties with families and friends.  Now you may have sent the invites out and planned a menu, but have you thought of everything to ensure your guests have a memorable experience?  Well, the team at RIHI is here to provide you with ten sure fire tips to make your evening a lively and wonderful success:

  1. Clean and Declutter

Start by creating a clean and inviting space.  Tidy up all rooms, clear away unnecessary clutter, and make sure the bathrooms are spotless.   A neat, clean home helps to create the perfect ambiance for your guests.

  1. Ambiance is Key

Set the right mood with well-planned lighting and background music that helps to add to the festivities.  Go for soft, warm lighting to create a cozy atmosphere, and build a playlist that sets just the right vibe of your event.

  1. Comfortable Seating

Make sure there is enough comfortable seating for everyone.  Arrange chairs and sofas in a way that encourages conversation and connection.  For an extra touch of coziness add some throw pillows.

  1. Decorate to Celebrate

Spruce up your space with festive decorations. Fresh flowers, candles, or themed décor can instantly transform your home into a party-ready haven.

  1. Delicious Accoutrements

Create a menu of some tasty small bites, and specialty cocktails and mocktails.  This will give you the ability to cater to your guests that may have a wide variety of tastes and dietary needs.

  1. Organized Kitchen

Prep your kitchen for the day’s action by organizing utensils, cookware, and ensuring everything is easily accessible.  Designate spaces for serving and cleaning up to keep things running smoothly.

  1. Outdoor Appeal

Weather permitting, you could try to extend your hospitality outdoors.  Tidy up outdoor spaces, set up seating, and consider adding outdoor lighting for a touch of holiday enchantment.

  1. Entertainment Options

Planning some entertainment for your guests can be another way to keep the party feeling going.  Whether you decide on games, karaoke, or even a special movie get together, having choices will give everyone something to cater to their individual tastes.

  1. Guest Comfort

Make sure the temperature is comfortable for guests and even have extra blankets available for those who might get chilly.  If you are outdoors a fire is always a nice touch to create warmth and a nice ambiance.

  1. Parking Solutions

If you are having a good size crowd, plan for parking accommodations to make it easy and convenient for your guests, and one that doesn’t upset your neighbors.  You will make their arrival hassle-free by providing clear instructions on where to park.

RIHI, The Home Improvement Specialist is confident that if you consider these ten tips as you plan your holiday get together, you will set the stage for a fantastic gathering.  Afterall, what’s better than creating a celebration where your guests can relax, enjoy good company, and create lasting memories in the comfort of your home.
