Celebrate the Holidays — invite your friends and family over for a fun “Tree Trimming Party” at your house. It makes a great party-mixer and saves you having to do all the work yourself.
Ask each guest bring a Holiday Ornament — most people like to bring “something” and it’s a great way to add to your tree every year. Make it FUN and choose a theme, for example, “Travel.” Check out our Travel Gift Ornaments.
Before your guests arrive, make sure you’ve put your Christmas lights on your tree. Place all the ornaments (and hooks) on a table (preferably near the tree). As guests arrive, offer them a holiday drink (Hot Mulled Wine, Eggnog, Xmas Punch) or a colorful cocktail (Pomegranate or Apple Martini) — then invite them to hang ornaments on your tree.
Be sure to have Christmas music playing in the background to set the tone of the event. Christmas Carols are always a big hit. Plan a fun Holiday Tree Trimming Party menu. Keep it simple – set the food up buffet style so your guests can help themselves at their leisure. Festive hors d’oeuvres are always popular. A week or two before your event, visit your local Dollar Store to pick up fun party favors to give out to your guests as they leave to go home. The store offers some great holiday selections at reasonable prices.
