Itâ€™s Holiday time! Tisâ€™ the season to deck the halls, buy or make heartfelt gifts, and strategically place the mistletoe. With Holiday celebrations comes great expectations.Â If youâ€™re planning on throwing a party this Holiday, TimbercreekÂ has created this Holiday Checklist for entertaining so you wonâ€™t miss a beat.
You donâ€™t have to be Adele, Holiday songs are made for for everyone to sing -- tone deaf and vocally blessed alike.Â So belt out some carols this year! With a little prep, you can host a caroling party thatâ€™ll be fun for all. Choose a setlist, print out some lyrics, find karaoke versions (or if someone plays guitar or piano go for it), and get busy. Healthy doses of wine or eggnog tend to make voices much, much better.Holiday Craft Hang
For most of us, â€˜busyâ€™ is an understatement during the holidays. With so much to do before the big day, time with friends can fall by the wayside. Why not invite some friends over to tackle your Holiday crafts? Everyone has to take time to handle card writing, gift tagging,Â gift wrapping, and (for the ambitious) gift making. So get together to plow through your collective to-do lists while swapping stories, blasting holiday tunes, and enjoying cookies and rum toddies.
Holiday Cookie or Dessert Potluck
When in doubt, delegate and diversify. Get more for less by hosting a Holiday cookie (or Holiday dessert) pot-luck. Itâ€™s super easy to do -- just invite a group of friends and ask everyone to bring their favourite Holiday treat. Have each person make one type of cookie or dessert to share (and a display plate). Then bring everyone together to sample the goods, and trade and package up leftovers in takeout containers or cookie tins. Easy peasy.Timbercreek hopes this list helps you entertain with style this holiday season. For more information about Timbercreek Communities in your city, please visit our website.
