New Years Eve Party

You are giving a try at your very own New Years Eve Party surrounded by great food, family and friends. Get your party hats noise makers and some great music and you are in business. A lot of the food can be catered; everyone has party trays this time of year. Boston Market and Honey Baked are a couple of my favorites. If you are especially particular it is simple to do a lot of the preparation yourself. But whatever your decision just have a great time.

When you do your table set up for your food you can place large objects under your table clothe to give your food that personality of looking special. Be sure to use a Christmas centerpiece and Christmas greenery to give your table that holiday look. Happy New Year!

Halloween Costume Party for Children

Halloween Party Fun

Would you like to trick or treat with your kids? Give a Halloween Party and invite the parents for coffee and cake. Dress casual, sit around and catch up on local happenings while you keep watch on the little trick or treaters. This kids Halloween party need not be a long one and can start very early. This will give everyone a chance to get home and relax.

Use paper for everything. When you are done just gather the debris up and throw it away. There is no need for a large gathering unless you really feel up to it. Seeing a few friends and letting the kids have a little fun is such a nice way to spend a Halloween evening.

Holiday Party Preparation

There are so many reasons to have a Holiday party during the winter season,  football games, soccer, costume and Christmas parties, Birthdays and Anniversary parties. This is a reason to have your holiday planning skills ready. You can be as creative as you like with creative food and delicious recipes.

Decorating with a theme for your party always makes it more fun and festive. It gives you a direction to take your decorating and food preparation. The next thing you want to do is to start out with a budget for your holiday party. It is very easy to do the non-stop spending. Give yourself a price range for Thanksgiving or Christmas or any type of party.You don’t want everyone to enjoy your party but you. Agonizing over the cost of a party is not the goal.

Decide if you want to have your food catered or if you would rather prepare it yourself. If you should decided to go it alone there are a number of foods that can be prepped. This will make your work load a lot easier. Pizza is always an easy out for a simple get together but can become expensive for large scale parties. But if time is a problem, pre-made deli trays and Pizza is your best out.

A holiday party with trays of turkey or ham rolls, crackers , assorted cheeses, and, vegetable are all dishes that take very little time and effort and can be fun to make. Simply find you a several large trays and go to work on your holiday party preparation. Christmas and New Year celebrations are a little more formal so if you are not a wizard of a cook you probably want to use a Cater for large parties. When you are having a less formal gathering finger food works just fine.

Cold weather seems to make everything come closer together; maybe it is the same for people. Planning a holiday party or helping out a friend with their party, sounds like a great excuse to spend time with people you care about or simply a way to make new friends.

Details Make All the Difference

It is the day before your banquet. You have your organized list. Of course all of the preparations have been made. I hope you are not waiting until the last minute to get your silverware, and glasses ready. These things should be standing by and ready to go. Sugar caddy's, salt and pepper shakers, candles and globes. Unless your patron has decided to do their own decor candles are usually appreciated. Your table clothes and napkins are nicely done and ready for action. Oh, by the way if you are folding your napkins make sure you have a box of them pre-folded it will save you so much time.

Fourth of July

It is the big BBQ time. Big and small grills lots of lemonade, iced tea, etc. Paper,paper,paper. Very little clean up. The cook and or host wants to enjoy the festivities as well. Paper tablecloths are great. Roll them up place them in the trash and the clean up is pretty much done. 

Develop a theme for your celebration and work your dinner around it. You can do some open grill cooking but preparing some items ahead of time will give you a lot more time to relax and enjoy the festivities. Cooking enough for a couple of days extends the holiday feeling somewhat and allows that extra time just to enjoy the company of family and friends.

Visit your nearest home supply store and get a nice grill to cook out on. Guys love to barbecue so let him show off his skill. The kitchen is neat but the using an outdoor grille for a Fouth of July cookout is so much fun. Practically anything you might fix in an oven is possible on the grill with the use of some cool utensils or som aluminum foils made especially for outdoor foods. 

Grill cookout can be preplanned and the food is setup in advance. Everything used is almost throw away. Place the trash container in a convenient spot set up the table, the cooler filled with beverages and have a nice cookout. Even the cook gets to enjoy.
