Believe it or not, hosting a stress-free Christmas dinner is as simple as 1…2…3! As event planners, we’re all too familiar with the stress that often accompanies the holiday season.

3 Steps for Hosting a Stress-Free Christmas Dinner
Ensure all your guests have RSVP’d at least two weeks before your event. This timeframe will give you sufficient notice to have everything you need for the amount of guests you’re hosting. Plan your menu and make your grocery list in advance. You can also bake Christmas treats such as cookies at the beginning of the month since these items can stay fresh in a tin for up to a month! That way, you won’t be stressed out preparing all the food the day before.
Prep Your Home
Since it’s the holiday season, you’ll want to decorate your home with a few festive elements to make it feel extra cozy! However, don’t wait until the last minute to do this. By decorating your home at the beginning of the month instead of the day before Christmas dinner, you’ll feel more prepared to host your family and friends.
Keep It Simple
We all want our home to look like the set of a Christmas movie! However, it’s best to keep your Christmas dinner menu and décor simple, especially if you’re doing all the work. Of course, you can always hire Events by Loukia to create an over-the-top design that will leave your guests wowed! Send us an inquiry to book professional Christmas decorating services.
