This year my sister Kate from Clear the Way and I created the 12 Lists series which is a monthly series for those who love writing lists. Each month we announce the topic, write our lists accordingly, and invite you to do the same on your blog. You are welcome to add your post to the link-up below so we can get to know you a little better, one list at a time. This month’s topic: party essentials.
I’m a bit late this month, but still glad to be sharing another list this month. It’s always great to see what everyone contributes, and, as I love hosting parties, I’ll be keeping my eye out for some good hosting tips on this month’s topic.
- A good playlist.
- A water station – I have a large glass jar I fill with ice water and seasonal garnishes to add a bit of flavor.
- Yummy drinks – it’s nice to have a punch bowl of a virgin cocktail and a couple bottles handy for the guests who’d like to imbibe. That way the your guests who don’t drink can still have a pretty and delicious drink to sip on.
- A game plan – I try to plan some games/activities in case there is a lull. They aren’t always needed, but I like having some tricks up my sleeve.
- Food – I love planning a menu and cooking for my friends. If you don’t have the time to cook, make it a potluck!
Take a peek at my sister’s list this month, make your own list and share it on your blog. Feel free to use the header, just be sure to link up to the original posts. Use the hashtag #12lists2015 on social media, and happy listing!
