Lists and more lists. Make a list of everything you need to do and get items checked off as soon as possible. This plan will help to reduce stress and ensure you have all items needed for your get-together.


Getting organized for your holiday parties by cleaning up existing and excessive clutter in the house is a good idea. This will help ensure your environment is stress free especially while your party guests are in your home. If you are in need of more space than you have at home YourWay Storage has the perfect self storage solution for you.

Set the mood:

Decorate your space with holiday-themed decorations; garland, twinkling lights, and a festive table setting! Setting your party mood music is a great idea as well. Create a playlist with some holiday songs as well as a few standard sprinkled in for guests with all music tastes.

Preparing food:

A mix of savory and sweet foods is the best idea. Be sure to include options for guests with dietary restrictions. Hosting a potluck is a great way to ensure there is food for everyone to enjoy. Having your party catered can help make for a less stressful day. If you choose to prepare everything, allowing your guests to bring plates, napkins, and drinks is a great way to split the workload.


Offer a variety of drinks such as juice, holiday punch, soda, and plenty of water.


Planning activities, especially for a party with younger guests, is a great way to keep everyone entertained. A secret Santa gift exchange, setting up indoor games such as charades or trivia, or having a movie or game night with classic holiday films or board games are a few suggestions to keep your guests engaged and getting to know each other.

Clean up:

Cleaning up as you go will make the end of your party much more manageable. Make sure to clean up messes as they happen rather than letting them accumulate. We like to do dishes as the day goes as well. This way, it does not feel so daunting when guests go home.


Make sure you enjoy your party! Enjoy the company of your friends and family gathering together this holiday season. Now that everything is taken care of for your party and you have a plan for the day you can kick back and have a great time!

Holidays are the perfect time to enjoy the company of those you love. Party planning can be a daunting task and can feel incredibly overwhelming leading up to the day of the party. YourWay Storage offers this list of tips and tricks to help you ease into the party season.
