Act Early

The earlier you start planning and doing, the better. Don’t leave things to the last minute, especially when it comes to the menu! This isn’t the time for creativity, make something you’ve already mastered or at least attempted with a high rate of success in the past few weeks.

It’s All About the Details

Little details are what people really remember from a party. Whether you decide to dip your pumpkin place cards in goldΒ or wrap your napkins in lace trim, adding unique touches to your gathering really stays with the guests.

It’s a scientific fact that people love theme parties. Not only do they make the party more fun for the party-goers, it also narrows down the decor and dining options for the host. In all cases (except for trimming) too much variety can be overwhelming. We really like the medieval theme for this holiday season!
