Making a party “memorable” doesn’t mean you have to worry about making everything oh-so perfect. Simply have an element or two that stands out and is a bit of surprise to your guest.
Now that it’s the holiday season, how can I plan a memorable party?
Making a party “memorable” doesn’t mean you have to worry about making everything oh-so perfect. Simply have an element or two that stands out and is a bit of surprise to your guest. It can be something simple like shaving up ice for a home-made boozy snow cone bar. Or if you been collecting vintage records, DJ a few tunes for your guests. For those who like to cook, go all out and make that champagne and oyster bouillabaisse you’ve been checking out in that French cooking magazine. Keep it personal, and think of it like story telling … if you have something special to tell your guest about, it adds that extra touch that will make people enjoy and remember it.
