You’re throwing a holiday party: congratulations! At this time of year, many people without a great deal of party hosting experience are more likely to throw huge blowouts that include all of their friends and family. Holiday parties are exciting, but they can also be quite stressful! Knowing that you’ve lined up all the holiday party essentials can make it easier to make sure you’re ready for your big event.

Bring out the red and green.

Red and green linens make a comforting statement this time of year. Tablecloths, table runners, and napkins in gorgeous shades of red and green are ideal for any Christmas party. Or, take it a different direction: decorate in blue and silver for a winter wonderland event or choose red or green and gold to set your party ever so slightly apart.

Prepare for fancy.

A beautiful candelabra will go a long way toward setting the stage for a fancy event. Choose one that compliments your existing decor and makes it shine! Whether you’re having a small office party or a bigger blowout, you should also make sure that your centerpieces are chosen and designed with care. Flower bouquets or other temporary decor can be raffled off at the end of the night or sent home with the individual in a particular chair, while fancier centerpieces can be rented for your event.

Holiday Party mugs shouldn’t be overlooked.

What holiday party would be complete without hot chocolate, eggnog, or boiled custard? Having plenty of holiday mugs on hand is an important part of your party planning process.

Don’t forget the dinnerware!

Choosing to rent real silverware can be the difference between another forgettable office party and one that stands out a cut above the rest. Include dinnerware in your holiday rental plans to ensure that everyone is able to enjoy their meal without broken plastic ware or an inability to cut their meat!
