How To | 5 Tips to Host the Holidays without the Headache

If you’ve ever played host for the holidays, you know that while it is always fun to bring family and friends together, it can also come with its own headaches. Getting the house decorated and ready, preparing a menu and cooking the food, and the looming cleanup chores can be enough to overwhelm even the most experienced host. Luckily we can help with these 5 Tips to Host the Holidays without the Headache!

1. Decorate early (or quickly)

If you know you are hosting a holiday celebration at your house, you’ll want it to look as festive as possible! But holiday decorating can be a big task that takes a lot of time. If possible, start early so you don’t feel rushed. But if time is not on your side and you need to get the house ready within a tight schedule, just focus on a few key items to set the mood. If you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner, focus on your table settings and decor. If it’s Christmas, just make sure to get the tree up and hang some stockings. Once a few main elements are in place, you can relax and only add more décor if you have the time.

2. Delegate duties

Trying to do it all is a good way to get yourself overwhelmed. Be sure to delegate what you can and don’t try to take on every responsibility by yourself. Take your most daunting task and ask someone for help. From decorating, to cooking, or just putting the plan in place, your friends and family will likely be eager to lend a helping hand wherever they can.

3. Hire professionals

Don’t overlook the possibility of hiring professionals for certain aspects of the party planning process. You may not want to splurge on an event planner for a family holiday, but you can certainly hire out for stages of the process. Hire someone to come deep-clean your house, contract a caterer for dinner, and have rental linens and tableware delivered to your house to cut down on setup as well as cleanup.

4. Think ahead

Even if you love planning and hosting events, cleaning up can be one of the biggest hassles. Think ahead during the planning process to save yourself some of the post-party stress. If you are hosting a meal, plan early and rent your dishware, flatware, and glassware. You can coordinate a perfectly festive look and you get to skip doing the dishes entirely. Table linens and napkins can also be rented in small quantities, so you can take laundry off your to-do list. Opening presents can also cause a big mess, so put trash bins or bags out around the room before everyone starts ripping into the wrapping. You can also put a receptacle nearby for reusable gift bags.

5. Make space for kids

Keep the kids busy and reduce your stress by having a space specially prepared for your younger guests. Load up a child-sized table with games and activities to entertain them until dinnertime. Then when it’s time to serve up the food, help them clear the table, throw on a table linen and drop some place settings. They will enjoy having their own space for play and for mealtime and cleanup will be much simpler without those surprise messes throughout the whole house.

How To | Pick the Perfect Chairs for Your Event

For such a simple event staple, chair styles are surprisingly varied. But since chairs are one of the most abundant items at most events, they can certainly make an impact on the overall look. Keep reading to learn more about the 5 styles of chairs in our inventory and when you should consider renting each one.

1. Chiavari

With so many different color options, Chiavari chairs are some of the most versatile and popular chairs. These types of chairs can fit into almost any style and budget. Mahogany and Natural Wood are a good option for a more organic or rustic vibe, Vintage Wash fits in with a vintage or garden look, while Black, White, Silver and Gold can add coordinating color to your table style.

2. Gunmetal

In the past, Gunmetal chairs were used almost exclusively for industrial styles. However they are becoming more and more popular to use in a mix-and-match look. From edgy to romantic, they can really tie together a wide array of décor. If you’re having trouble envisioning these chairs at your event, feel free to come into any Celebrations! showroom and create your own custom displays until you find the perfect combination.

3. Phantom

The best thing about these transparent chairs is that they can fit into any style! Phantom chairs are popular as ceremony chairs for a simultaneously subtle and striking look, while they can be used as seating as well as guests’ place cards at a reception with the help of custom decals. These chairs are the perfect base to dress up in your own unique style. Keep them simple for a sleek look, add faux fur on the seats for a modern and cozy vibe, or throw on some pillows for a pop of color. No matter what you do with Phantom chairs, the result is sure to stand out.

4. Specialty

Wooden Crossback chairs are one of the most popular chairs in our inventory for reception, ceremony, or any type of event seating. They bring a natural style to tie in a variety of looks, from a vintage garden party to a modern farmhouse wedding. For a more sophisticated look, Felicity dining chairs bring big style to any event. These chairs coordinate well with Crossback chairs or the Felicity lounge collection to create a cohesive look that’s not too vintage or too modern, but somewhere right in the middle.

5. Folding

Padded Folding Chairs (available in White, Black, Natural, and Walnut Wood) and Off-White Samsonite Folding Chairs are quick, simple, and easy solutions to seat large crowds without a large bill. These simplistic chairs don’t add much in the way of style, but they certainly get the job done and seat your guests comfortably.
