What is a party without a theme? Invite your guests to dress up, or have them bring an item related to the theme of your choice. You can have a tacky sweater contest, white elephant gift exchange, 80s dress up theme, or even challenge them to a bake-off with their favorite homemade dessert. Themes are a great way to get your guests excited and into the holiday spirit!


Get creative and decorate your space with festive décor. Who doesn’t love a gorgeous tablescape, lights, garland and glitter? Putting these four items together will welcome the holiday season right into your apartment space.


Keeping your menu simple will save on costs as well as the amount of cleanup you will have at the end of your party. Instead of serving a full meal, serve finger foods, such as fruit and vegetable trays, dips, meatballs, and mini sandwiches. Finger foods are quick, easy and cost efficient!


Send your family and friends on their way with a tasty party favor. Bake a few batches of cookies for your guests, wrap them in ribbon, and voila! Everyone loves cookies, so try out your favorite recipe for all to enjoy!
