3 Christmas Party Ideas for the Holiday Season

shutterstock_231019957When thinking about holiday traditions around December, what first comes to mind is being with your parents, wife and kids or close relatives. However, with Christmas right around the corner, in many offices and among longtime friends, Christmas Parties constitute a tradition almost as strong as the holiday itself. Many view it as a chance to show co-workers and friends that we care about them too, and so everyone starts thinking of the best Christmas Party Ideas for that year.

However, ideas for Christmas parties always fall into the same categories, and are lacking in creativity. Not to let our readers down, today we shall look at a couple of Christmas Party Ideas that will help you treat your guests to an awesome time come December, so let’s get started!

Christmas Karaoke Night

One of the great Christmas Party Ideas to keep the tradition of Christmas Caroling alive without actually having to listen to Christmas Carolers is to sing Christmas classics with your friends and co-workers. You can organize a night out at the karaoke bar with private singing rooms or buy a home karaoke set, either way singing classic and contemporary carols is a fun way to get into the Christmas spirit, and it can become something to do every year.

Christmas tree decorating: One of the most nostalgia-filled Christmas Party Ideas

It is truly a sign of maturity to buy and decorate your own Christmas tree. It shows that you are both living independently and have the means to buy a Tree, which can be expensive. A good party to have is to tell friends or co-workers to help you decorate the tree, but also to bring the decoration of their choosing to make the tree have an extra meaning: friendship. You could also make them tell a story about the ornament they chose, and why they chose them. End the evening by putting the star or angel on top and light it up!

Christmas Movie Marathonshutterstock_154934819

Watching classic holiday films like Rudolph, Merry Christmas Charlie Brown!, It’s a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street, your holiday film fest is sure to be a memorable affair for your co-workers or friends. Just keep it to less than five to avoid merry movie fatigue. And it doesn’t have to be people sitting around silently watching the movie, either. You can sing along with the actors, or come up with a drinking game for a specific film. Take a shot every time you see a Christmas tree in a movie. Or just take a shot, we won’t tell.

There you have them! We hope these Christmas Party Ideas have been of your liking, to share this with friends and family and if you’re looking for some professional moving service this holiday season, contact us! Until next time, Happy Holidays!

2 Creative Thanksgiving Ideas to try out!

shutterstock_157539731

There are certain things that are a traditional must in every thanksgiving celebration: The Turkey, the pumpkin pie, the stuffing, the cranberry sauce and of course the leftovers the next couple of days (or weeks depending on what size turkey you bought).It is of course traditional and Norman Rockwell-esque to think of the whole Thanksgiving affair as a formal banquet with close family and significant others, and never give a thought to any other Thanksgiving Ideas to implement.

But if you’re looking to change things up a little this year, we are here to help you. So today we have for you a couple of Thanksgiving Ideas you can use to make this year’s Thanksgiving dinner a memorable one for your friends and family.

1.-The before and after activities

A very innovative way to start a Thanksgiving meal is by planning activities before and after the meal actually takes place. Start off by giving your guests some warm apple cider so they can get into the Thanksgiving mood, and put some cinnamon sticks into their glasses to act as stirrers for an extra detail sure to bring a smile to their faces. If you or your loved ones are football fans, then the traditional Thanksgiving game should be a good way to literally kick off the celebrations.

If this is not the case however, a good tradition is to form a thank you chain, which is an activity where people write down all they have to be thankful for in a small piece of paper and pass it around several times making sure they didn’t get theirs when it comes back. At the end of the meal everyone reads the one placed in front of them and they try to guess who wrote it down.

2.-The Thanksgiving Buffet: One of the best Thanksgiving Ideas to relax

A lot of people associate Thanksgiving with a lot of hassle, pressure and stress in general, mainly stemming from preparing the meals and then presenting them to your guests. As far as Thanksgiving Ideas are concerned, having a Thanksgiving Buffet is ideal if you’re looking to relax a little and actually enjoy the meal, not just enjoy the sense of accomplishment that comes with having been able to pull off the meal itself. The idea is a simple one: Take the entire day before thanksgiving to make the food, then simply put it in a different table than the one you’re eating in and have your guests take their plates and help themselves! If you want to add a little detail to it, make small card that have the name of the dishes written on them and place them in front of the dishes themselves, to add to the whole Buffet Experience.

We hope you have found these Thanksgiving Ideas useful for your next Thanksgiving Dinner! Share this with your friends and family and if you’re planning to move to a new home before Turkey Day, Contact us. Have a great Day!
