It’s that time of year again when the leaves start to change colors and pumpkins begin to appear on front porches. Although you may not have the Christmas season on your radar quite yet, it will be here before you know it!
At Stokely Event Center, we believe there are many reasons why hosting your holiday party now – before the busyness of the holiday season sets in – is a good idea.
1. Save Money
By planning your holiday party before the official start of the holiday season, you will be able to save money! This means more money left in your budget to spend on decor, entertainment, and food.
At Stokely Event Center, we don’t restrict our party hosts to designated vendors lists. This allows each host to shop around for the best prices on food, drinks, and entertainment that will create the party atmosphere they desire.
2. Create a More Intimate Celebration
Hosting your holiday party before the Christmas season gets underway allows you to create an atmosphere that is very different from what you would get during the holidays. An early holiday party gives guests time to relax without the stress of the Christmas rush.
Additionally, with fewer events on their calendars, you will likely have a much better party turnout than you would if you waited to host a holiday celebration in the middle of December.
3. Find Unique Entertainment Options
Although there are many things you could do at your holiday party – like decorate gingerbread houses or play games with teams of two – it’s often nice to have something new every year!
By starting early on planning this special event, you will give yourself more opportunities to think outside of the box when it comes to entertaining your friends and family. You may even be able to incorporate some “new” traditions.
4. Avoid the Crowds
If you are like many others, it can be tempting to host your holiday party on one of the weekends leading up to Christmas Day. Unfortunately, this means that if you choose a popular venue in an area with high foot traffic or near public transportation – there will likely be lots of people! This can be off-putting and even dangerous when you factor in the possibility of drunk drivers or crowded venues.
5. Reduce Stress & Enjoy Yourself
The Christmas season is wonderful, but it’s also incredibly busy! If at all possible, try to avoid hosting your holiday party during this time because everything will revolve around getting ready for guests and planning your event.
If you host a holiday event before December starts, you’ll have more time to spend with friends and family while still enjoying some festive fun!
