The Gift of Entertaining
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.Benjamin Franklin
Ask your guest of any allergies or food restrictions upon inviting them. This way you can be prepared and be sure everyone is enjoying themselves at your gathering.
House Coach is excited to announce we’ll be designing a tree at Casa Loma again this year! If you’re looking for a great date night idea or a fun way to spend the day with your family check out Casa Loma’s Holiday event this season and keep an eye out for the House Coach tree!
As you may already know, decorating and entertaining go hand in hand so it should come as no surprise that House Coach is bursting with great holiday entertaining and decorating ideas.
We decided to put together our favourite tips to help you enjoy and prepare for any type of occasion that should arise this season!
It’s Not a Party Without Music
- Before you start any party planning, create a playlist first so that you’re not distracted by other details leading up to your event.
Ornaments and Adornments
- Use your favourite ornaments as a topper on your place settings or as napkin adornments.
- If you are going for a formal look, keep the ornaments uniform or for a casual look choose a variety of different ornaments.
Use Your Gifts as Décor
- You may be tempted to hide and store gifts until it’s time to hand them out. However, we suggest wrapping your gifts in coordinating colours and patterns and set them out as décor throughout your home.
Relax and Make Hosting a Breeze
- Set up as much as you can the night before. For example; decorate and pre-set the table and prep the food ahead of time.
- By doing this it will free up some time before the event to get yourself ready and be stress free when guest arrive.
We love making the holidays special and want to celebrate with you, so give House Coach a call today for all your decorating needs!
