Hosting your first-ever holiday party? Don’t hit the panic button just yet! Help is here—with our 5-part Complete Holiday Party Guide! So here we are, kicking off the series with Part 1 on holiday printables, gift tags, and signs that are just brimming with yuletide cheer! For first-time party planners, there can’t be an easier way to ensure that your holiday packaging is ‘merry and bright’!
Spread the Yuletide Cheer with these Pretty Finds
1 – Spark the party excitement early with holiday invitations that are a visual delight. Beyond the usual 2D printables available online, these cards we found via HGTV include a crafty 3D effect. Great for invites, too!
2 – If it’s ‘instant festive’ you want, a garland for your mantel like this one from Sarah Hearts is the way to go! Just download, print, cut, string together, and enjoy. Plus, the monogram design makes the tags usable as gift trims, too!
3 – Speaking of drinks, why not serve your guests your favorite holiday cocktail, then surprise them with a cocktail recipe card for them to take home! Saw this chic card design on Very Sarie, and had to share it.
4 – How can you not love this whimsical window display for…well, anything Christmasy? The minute we spotted it on Shimelle blog (styled by Corrie Jones), we saw how it would make an absolutely charming welcome sign for arriving party guests!
5 – Some red tape, a white pen, and candy canes. That’s all you need to create these darling doable-in-minutes party place cards for your place settings, courtesy of Mint Design blog!
6 – Our blogger-friend Laura of Eye Candy Event Details designed these cool, printable bottle hang tags. Clever way to coordinate your party drinks with the rest of your decor—or to dress up wine or champagne bottles to give as hostess gifts!
7 – Finally, what would a party be without some pretty favors? Cupcakes are always a delish option. And trimming them with a festive printable cupcake topper, like this charmer from Anna and Blue Paperie, couldn’t be easier!
Now that you’ve been inspired with these unique holiday printables and gift tags, we can’t wait to share Parts 2 to 5 of our Complete Holiday Party Guide with you! We’ll be covering Food and Drinks, Desserts and Sweets, Favors, and Decor Ideas from some of the most creative party, food, and crafting blogs out there, so you know the ideas are all fab and festive. But we made sure that they’re doable, too! So do drop by again…and again…and again. Happy hosting!
