An Illustrated Guide to Planning your Holiday Celebrations
Tip #1: Choose guests carefully in order to avoid awkward silences.
Tip #2: Location, location, location! Select the right venue for holiday cheer.
Tip #3: If entertaining at home bust out (not literally!) the good crystal.
Tip #4: Before guests assemble, liberally test the libations… just to make sure.
Tip #5: Dust the buffet shelves, or if yours aren’t this fancy, cover them with sparkly fabric artfully bunched!
#6: Trot out your finery.
Tip #7: Encourage party hats and pets. (And party hats for pets.)
Tip #8: You might need to warn revelers about overdoing the noise. Inebriation is no excuse!
Tip #9: Fireworks are appropriate at any season!
Tip #10: May as well keep the merriment going. Have another but watch your step.
Tip #11 (for the morning after): Resolve not to overdo next time!
