Throw the Event to Remember with These Holiday Party Style Tips
The season for festive gatherings has rolled around once again! According to recent statistics, nearly 30% of Americans embrace the holiday spirit by either hosting parties for work, friends, or family.
The True Volume (and Cost) of Holiday Parties
In the grand tradition of spreading cheer, these gatherings come in all shapes and sizes, but what about the financial toll they take on the hosts? On average, hosting a holiday party can set you back anywhere from $760 to $1000. This cost covers everything from decor to food and drinks that leave your guests wanting more. So, we came up with some ideas to host memorable celebrations without draining your bank account.
Holiday Party Tips: Cutting Costs
- Keep it Intimate: The guest list is a significant factor in your party’s budget. Keeping things intimate not only fosters a cozy atmosphere but also reduces the overall cost. Fewer attendees mean less food, less space, and a more manageable gathering.
- Stick to Beer and Wine: Instead of crafting a thought-out cocktail menu, simplify your drink selection to beer and wine. Not only is it easier to manage, but it also trims down your alcohol expenses.
- Greenery Over Florals: Trade expensive flower arrangements for greenery from your neighborhood or backyard. This adds a natural touch to your decorations and is a cost-effective alternative.
- Thrifty Décor: Deck the halls with budget-friendly finds by exploring thrift stores for decor. You will be surprised at the pieces you can uncover!
