For many of us, the holiday season holds many things. For some, the cooler months mean time away from the office in exotic locations. For others, it’s cozy nights by the fireplace and a favorite holiday movie on TV.

Perhaps this year, for you, is a holiday party time. The straws were drawn, and you were picked to host this year’s family gathering or office party. Just imagine: Family is flying in from around the country, in-laws are calling with requests, and your cousin just emailed you with a reminder of their daughter’s special dietary restrictions.

As you sit down and begin to map out Operation Perfect Party, the to-do list (and your stress level) quickly grows out of control:

  • What is an original theme that will set this year’s party apart?
  • How many hungry people will be there?
  • What are they going to eat?
  • How do you stage that old conference table or card table with charcuterie AND finger food?
  • What on earth is a “heavy hors d'oeuvre”?
  • What kind of drinks should you order?
  • Should you bring back that ‘80s cover band from last year?
  • How do you make sure that Uncle Chris and Cousin Suzy don’t get in another fistfight over that last appetizer?

Before you can pull up a Google search window, the panic hits.

How am I going to do all of this? 

Guess what? You can do this!
