5 Things You Need To Throw The Best Holiday Party
The end of the year just feels like one big party. There's Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa, and New Year's. It's a handful for both guests and hostesses. If you're planning on throwing a get together with your family and friends, you want to make sure that everyone's having fun... and that you'll have the bash to remember. Make sure you party stands out with these five must-haves:
1. A photo backdrop
How does the saying go-- If a tree falls in the wood but no one's around to hear it, will it make a sound? Well, if you have a party and it doesn't get documented through social media, did it really happen? All jokes aside, the holidays are the prime time for photos, so make sure your guests have the perfect backdrop for all those group photos and silly selfies.
2. An epic dessert bar
Need I say more? If I saw this at a party, I don't think I could stop talking about it for weeks.
3. Ugly sweaters
