08 Dec 4 Reasons Why Hosting Your Holiday Soiree in January is Better
Holiday gatherings are truly what make this time of year so special: seeing all the people you know and love, enjoying time with family and friends, and exchanging gifts is a part of the magic. However, with so many parties and only a few weekends in December, it can difficult to find time to host a gathering all your own. But who says you can’t have all your family and friends under one roof this holiday season? Shake up the usual and host your soiree fashionably late in January! Here are a few reasons to consider this new trend:
Let’s face it – December can get very busy with all the holiday parties on your social calendar. You have family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors all fighting for your attention. If you’ve been trying to plan an evening where you can host a holiday soiree of your own, sometimes it can be difficult to compete with everyone’s busy schedules. In January things calm down significantly. So why not take advantage of everyone’s lighter calendars and plan a party after the New Year instead?
Elevated Food Options
Around the holidays, most hosts serve the same things. Not you. In January you can indulge in seasonal dishes that aren’t shaped like a gingerbread man or sprinkled with holiday cheer. Go ahead – liven up the menu! Your guests will love you for it and welcome the change of pace.
Extending the Good Mood
After New Year’s Eve there isn’t much else to truly celebrate. Give your friends a great excuse to keep smiling by extending the excitement of holiday cheer to the new year. People will be more relaxed, their holiday travels will be done, and will likely welcome a January event with open arms.
Since most people will be having their holiday parties in December, the venue or event planner of your choice might already be booked. But in January? You have a much better chance of securing everything you want (and more!) since January parties are still fairly new. Why settle for second best when the party professionals you know and love will most certainly be available only one month later?
