• How to Throw the Perfect Holiday Party

    0 comments / Posted by Samantha Lee

    With the holiday season in full swing, there's nothing we love more than thanking our guests with a fun and festive holiday party.  This past weekend, we held a holiday pop up shop in San Francisco. Guests got the chance to shop DearMissJ as well as mingle with other fellow DearMissJ fans.  

    Tip #1: Interact with your guests.  At parties where not everyone knows each other, make it a point to plan out possible conversation starters between guests who have similar interests.  They will make a new friend that night, and you can feel good that everyone is having a great time!

    Tip #2: Keep the bites and bubbly fully stocked throughout the night!  No one wants to be hungry or thirsty at a holiday party.  Make sure you have more than enough to go around once and twice again!  If you have extra, that's just more to enjoy the next day!

    Tip #3: It's all in the details.  Guests will remember their favorite song playing in the background or the cute plate sitting on the table that reminds them of the morning birds from home.  Experiment with the details when you're decorating, and you'll be surprised what guests will appreciate and remember!

    Good luck party planning!  Don't forget the holidays are a time to spend time with the ones you love, so don't get stressed out over your next holiday party!
    It's the perfect time to grab gifts for all the gals on your gift list!
