The list of all your to-do’s is crucial in making sure that everything is handled accordingly, this means who’s coming, what’s the menu going to look like and what presents need to be bought early. Okay, here’s the secret to the list, when you’re done writing it down it is best to separate them into their respective categories to have a simpler yet detail planner. If you’re tech-savvy, go ahead put your list on an app or computer documents, personally for the Momtrepreneur; Kimberly Bakker, she likes to go old school with old reliable paper and pencil.
Take part in your own event
Kimberly fully understands the demands of being a host, however, she warns that because you are providing everyone with wine refills and bringing out treats does not equal to being a gracious host. Step back and enjoy your party, remember those people are here to be with you. so the best thing you could give them this holiday season is your time.
Create memorable conversation
One of the issues in parties is the dreaded conversation topics, so to combat this, Kimberly Bakker suggests celebrating your past.
