As someone who has become known as the party planner amongst my friends, I am definitely an advocate for throwing the occasional party. They are fun and a great way to catch up with friends. And the holiday time is especially perfect for having a gathering with friends and loved ones! You hard work will be appreciated and you will have memories to last you a lifetime. If you're still on the fence about throwing a holiday bash, here are some reasons you should consider it!
1. You get to wear that hot dress you've been eyeing.
One thing I love about the season as a whole is that glitz and shine is everywhere. This means you can wear that sequin dress or flashy jewelry and it is totally fitting! We always see those amazing dresses while window shopping and think "where would I even wear that?" Well a holiday party is your chance! Have a cocktail party and tell your guests to come dressed in their holiday best. You can rock that over the top dress and everyone will look very sharp for all those pictures you will take.
Need I even say more? Around the holidays, I feel as if champagne flows more freely than usual. And as a champagne lover, this brings me much joy! Pop some bubbly with your friends and keep it classy while partying. Of course, a little Pinterest-ing will uncover many fun holiday cocktails that your friends are sure to love as well.
3. Your home is already decorated.
Many people don't do much in regards to decorating for other holidays throughout the year, like Valentine's Day or the 4th of July. And the thought of spending more money on decor for one night of fun might seem very unappealing. But around the holidays, most of us have the tree up along with festive lights and sparkling garlands so your home is ready to be used for a party! You can worry less about decorating and more about having a good time with loved ones.
4. The memories you will make are priceless.
This is a little cheesy but it's true! The older I get, the more I learn to appreciate the beautiful moments I share with friends. We all become more busy and don't have as much time to spend together. That is why having a party is so wonderful and why I choose to have them often! We are spending quality time together and making memories to last a life time. There is no better way to spend your time than laughing with loved ones over yummy food and good drinks. Ensure that many pictures are taken so you can look back at the fun times you had. Take every opportunity to make memories with your friends and you will not regret it!
Lovelies, will you throw a holiday party this season or just attend one?
