The holidays are right around the corner and now is the time to start planning your annual company or family party. There are endless events and functions throughout the season, so why not leave your guests with a lasting impression? Try some of the below tips to spice up your next holiday soiree.
Eat (cookies), Drink and be Merry
Put your holiday baking to the test by hosting a cookie swap. Invite a group of friends or co-workers, and have each guest bring enough different types of cookies and the recipes to share. Try incorporating festive and seasonal flavors like persimmon, pumpkin and nutmeg. Sample the various cookies and trade recipes at the end of the event. Pair this party activity with a wine tasting from a local vineyard and you will have a sweet and savory night to remember.
Dress to Impress
Halloween may have just passed but that doesn’t mean your guests will mind dressing up again. Host a themed costume party from the “Roaring 20s” to the traditional Ugly Sweater Christmas Party. It’s a guaranteed way to bring some holiday joy. Really amp up the involvement by incorporating a contest and giving a festive gift to the best dressed!
Musical Gift Cards
As you get older, gift cards are a great gift to give – and to receive! Having a gift card only gift exchange can be a fun interactive game, similar to musical chairs. Give all of your guests a gift at the beginning of the game. Set to festive music, everyone will pass their gift around the room until the music stops. Then everyone opens their gift and gets to keep the gift they landed on. You might get lucky and take home a certificate to your favorite spa, Starbucks or fun restaurant in the area that you’ve been meaning to try!
The Ultimate Destination Party
Plan a destination party for your friends and employees to REALLY show them your appreciation. Glen Ivy Hot Springs offers an ideal setting to host a truly unique and festive holiday party. Socialize while enjoying small bites and festive cocktails prepared on-site from the Glen Ivy Kitchen. Select group services from full-body therapy at Club Mud to cabana rentals and endless relaxation in the 17 pools on property. It’s the ultimate way to treat your company to an unforgettable holiday experience.
Dare to try something new this holiday season and create a unique and memorable celebration that your friends, family and work-family will never forget.
