The holidays are a wonderful time to reconnect with family and friends—and what better way to look forward to the year ahead than with a fun and festive party! If the idea of pulling off a great get-together leaves you panicked, there’s no need to stress. With some pre-planning and a few creative ideas, it’s easy to create a memorable event that will leave a lasting impression with your guests!
Make Your List and Check It Twice
It’s difficult to catch up with loved ones if you’re stuck in the kitchen! To ensure you get to mix and mingle, plan ahead and keep it simple. Serve finger foods that can be prepared ahead of time, and take advantage of the many pre-made options available at the grocery store. Stock your shelves with ample supplies to avoid having to run to the store multiple times. Finally, why not treat yourself and let someone else do the dishes—renting china and silverware is a great option that lets you step away from the kitchen sink and put your feet up at the end of the night!
Ambiance is Everything!
The right lighting can make all the difference in creating an inviting ambiance for your party. Candles are a great way to create a soft glow that really warms a room, but open flames need to be watched closely. To create that same feeling of comfort, try a flameless candle instead. The Glade Wisp® Flameless Candle is a battery-operated version that combines the flickering light of a candle with the continuous fragrance of an air freshener beneath a frosted glass dome. Plus, it comes in a variety of scents that can be adjusted depending on how much fragrance you like. The Apple Cinnamon version is a delicious way to evoke memories of holiday apple pies.
Try a Unique Theme
Put a twist on the usual seasonal set up and try something a little different this year. For example, transport your guests to the sunny south with a holiday beach theme, complete with tropical cocktails and even a CD of carols with a Caribbean-inspired beat! You can even get your guests involved by asking them to bring a dish that reflects warm-weather fare.
Glade Wisp Flameless Candles are available across the country at all major retailers where Glade products are sold (suggested retail price is $9.99).
Cartridges from the Glade Wisp Home Fragrancer can be used in the Glade Wisp Flameless Candle. Scented Oil refills are available in Clean Linen™, French Vanilla, Apple Cinnamon, Hawaiian Breeze®, Suddenly Spring® and Delicate Petals® for the suggested retail price of $4.99.
