Holiday Party Tips
December has begun and DeLeon Entertainment is already in the midst of our Holiday Party season. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year, and with our years of experience at holiday parties, we can let you in on some tips on how to have a memorable and magical event.
Sleigh Bells Ring Are You Listening?
A mix of holiday and pop variety music is best. Christmas music enhances the festive ambience; however, your guests have been hearing it on the radio waves and in the shopping malls every second of every day since after Thanksgiving and probably earlier than that. Ensuring that your music can provide variety, dinner and dance music is a must. However, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” never fails to get the crowd going!
Everyone Dancing Merrily In the New Old-Fashioned Way
Don’t be afraid to get on the dance floor! Sure, these people might be your coworkers, but it’s important to remember that holidays and fun should be synonymous. The stress of deadlines and Christmas shopping can bog you down, but this time of year should feel like a holiday!
Bring Us Some Figgy Pudding
Consider heavy appetizers instead of a sit-down dinner. This will make getting out of the chairs and onto the dance floor easier, and also create a casual and celebratory atmosphere. Also, when guests are finished eating dinner, they can leave as soon as they finish their meal. With hors d’ oeuvres, guests will linger throughout the night and eat as they please. Here are some appetizer recipes to get you started:
- Southern Living Holiday Appetizers
- Food Network Easy, Elegant Holiday Appetizer Recipes
- Martha Stewart the Best Christmas Appetizers
And a Cup of Good Cheer
A signature holiday cocktail can be a great way to make the party festive and memorable. Check out some of these beverage suggestions:

Dressed in Holiday Style
Dress code will naturally be a consideration. This isn’t the club, but it also isn’t the office. Dressing up for a party should be a fun way to showcase a little personality, and there’s a shade of red for everyone!
