Isn’t it amazing how quickly the weeks and the months go by? Suddenly at a blink of the eye, we are quickly approaching the end of another year and find ourselves approaching the holidays once again.
We will have holiday planning and holiday decorating to do; holiday events to attend holiday parties to give. We will embark on lot’s of holiday shopping, holiday gift wrapping and of course, there’s the holiday gift giving! Yes it’s that time again, and I find myself asking where has all that time gone??
October starts the holiday season with ghost and goblins landing in town for Halloween. There are many tricks to planning the perfect party and of course you will want to share many treats along the way! So here are a few tips and tricks that may help lead to some great Halloween treats!
Tips and Treats……
Whether you are having a Halloween Party, a Thanksgiving Soirée, a Hanukah Celebration or a Christmas Wedding Extravaganza one of the key elements to a successful event is to start early and start planning! The holidays can especially be a hectic time of year, where people are over booked for various party engagements as well as potential venues where you may want to host your event. Generally the rule of thumb would be to send out “save the date" announcement cards at least four months in advance especially if you are planning your party around a religious holiday weekend. While typically most people would generally like to receive your invitations no more than four to six weeks out prior to your event, by extending your formal invitations at least two months out during the holiday season, you are providing your friends, family and guest enough time to put you first on their calendar of “must do” so they do not over extend or over book their holiday schedule!
As for the treat, set the tone of your party with over the top, unexpected invitations. It doesn’t have to be complicated but it should be an extraordinary creation, an elegant design for a fabulous event! In doing so, your guest will not only be thrilled to receive the invitation, they will save the date and look forward to a D’Vine party experience!
Of course if it becomes too overwhelming, or the goblins get you down, give D’Vine Expression a call and let us help you enjoy the upcoming holidays by tending to all the tricky stuff so you can enjoy all the tremendous holiday treats!
