Today I'm sharing tips for Planning the Ultimate Holiday Party. I've got everything you need from, drinks, appetizers, desserts plus great gift ideas for your guests and more. Chase Ultimate Rewards can help make it affordable!
The holidays are the perfect time to invite friends, family and neighbors into your home. Life always seems to be on the fast track and the holidays seem to shift it all into warped speed. It's so important to slow down and enjoy some time with those you love. Those memories made are irreplaceable.
Entertaining can be super stressful, so I'm sharing some tips, recipes and ideas to make your holiday party planning simple and easy.
The best way to stay organized are lists.
- Guest list
- Food and drinks to be served
- Decorations and serving dishes/glasses
- List of tasks to delegate
- Cleaning list
Don't try to handle it all by yourself. It is perfectly fine to delegate to friends and family members. If someone asks what they can bring, let them bring the ice or an extra bottle of wine or ginger ale.
When buying party supplies, use a rewards credit card to earn points to use towards holiday gifts for your family, like, Chase Ultimate Rewards, which is available to Chase Freedom, Chase Sapphire and Ink from Chase cardholders. I use mine for everyday purchases such as groceries and gas and it is super handy for big events like holiday parties.
Have drinks for the adults and the kids:
Serve simple finger foods that everyone will love.
Serve small desserts in individual or bite- sized servings.
Make your guests feel extra special with a small gift that can be easily put together!
Cranberry White Cookies in a Jar from My Baking Addiction
Snowball Playdough from Yellow Bliss Road
Winter Survival Mason Jar Gift from Hoosier Homemade
If you have, Chase Ultimate Rewards, the points you earn from every purchase can be redeemed for your choice of rewards including travel, experiences, merchandise, gift cards and even cash back, just in time for the holidays!
I hope your holidays are the best ever and I hope you find time to enjoy it with the ones you love!
