Stress Free Party Tips

Have Fun At Your Parties...

Harmonizing Homes has hosted many many parties....from our famous annual Beaujolais Parties in November to our annual White Party on Labor Day...and many in between...there are a lot of things you can do to prepare for a less stressful situation before the party

  • buy bagged ice or start making it ahead of time...use a cooler to keep extra on hand
  • pick out your serving dishes in advance - label the items with sticky notes prior to party time..this way you will know if you need to borrow or buy any additional items..
  • Keep already baked/cooked items that can be made ahead of time in the freezer...this way you can defrost them  at room temperature or pop them in the toaster oven or microwave in case guest pop over unannounced 
  • Stash simple syrup in the fridge for cocktails....
  • Be ready for a few tasks that guest can do for you....everyone always wants to give them a job.
  • Choice side dishes that can also be made ahead of time
  • Get into the spirit of the party ahead of time...pour yourself one of your favorite beverages....
  • Put on some music....A relaxed host and hostess will create a great party atmosphere  
  • Hire a server if you can afford for serving and clean up
Enjoy....its all about having fun with the people that you have invited...
