Holiday Party Planning Checklist

Holiday parties are always a great time. Whether it’s a family gathering or an office celebration, planning something for a group of people can be an overwhelming task. Staying organized when planning a holiday party may be the only way to keep sane. Our local movers in Boulder know a thing or two about staying organized! Let us share our holiday party planning checklist to keep you on track.

If you have been tasked with planning a party this holiday season, keep our checklist handy as you plan. This way, you can make sure you don’t forget anything and throw a perfect party everyone can enjoy -- including you!

Holiday Party Planning Checklist

To make sure that you don’t leave anything out when preparing for your holiday party, our Boulder movers have put together a checklist for holiday party planning. We will take you through the party planning process and tell you everything you need to remember when putting together the perfect party.

Plan out a guest list.

Whether your holiday party planning is for a family gathering or an office gathering, a guest list is still needed. This will help make sure that everyone is included and can also give you a headcount of how many people will be in attendance.

Prepare invitations.

Whether your party is for family or coworkers, invitations are always a nice touch. They can serve as a save the date for people and a memory of the evening. Invitations can also serve as RSVPs so that your headcount becomes more accurate as you get closer to your party date.

Make sure to plan for food and drinks.

If you are in charge of holiday party planning, you will certainly want to remember to order food and drinks. If your party is during dinner hours, you may want to have dinner catered for your guests. If your party is before or after dinner hours, simple snacks like finger foods will do. Just make sure that you order for more people than are expected to attend so you don’t run out!

Get decorations and set the mood.

Our residential movers in Boulder know that everyone loves a good theme. What better theme than a Christmas or New Year’s-related one? Immerse your guests in a Winter Wonderland with tinsel, snow, and all the holiday fixings. While planning a theme, don’t forget to book a DJ and pick music out!

Prepare activities for your guests to partake in.

Not all holiday parties need games or events, but they certainly are fun! During your holiday party planning, don’t forget to think of some fun games for your guests. These games can be anything from icebreakers to raffles, or an ugly sweater fashion show!

Pick out party favors to give out at the end of the night.

Never send your guests home empty-handed. During your holiday party planning, think about creative party favors you can make or buy to send home with your guests at the end of the night. Our team recommends personalizing the favors if you have time. We know that personal touch makes all the difference in an experience.
