I don’t know where November went, and now we’re almost through December. It’s crazy how time can just get away from you, isn’t it! Every year we try to have a friend holiday party, which takes me weeks of planning and prepping. This year we dropped the ball and failed to get anything planned.
Then last minute I decided I needed some girl time in my life.
Coordinating everyone’s schedule last minute can be hard, so I decided to do the exact opposite planning wise, of most holiday parties. Instead of planning a girls party on a weekend evening, I decided to plan a girls brunch to kick off the holiday season with my closest friends.
No kids, no husbands, no stress!
Here’s how I threw a last minute holiday party, that every procrastinator will appreciate (and at the end, I share my favorite holiday drink recipe):
- PICK A DAY THAT WORKS AND INVITE YOUR CREW:
I always start with Evite when I’m getting ready to throw any type of event. Whether you’re inviting 2 or 200 people, it doesn’t matter. I love creating one of “Evite’s Free Design Your Own invitations” that are tailored to my party theme. To start your own design, visit here.
Easy peasy right?
Here’s a re-cap of our girls holiday brunch.
- We made holiday crafts! (My favorite)
- We ate lunch….prepared by our own personal chef. (Aka my hubs and it was so yummy)
- We drank mimosas (also yummy)
- We had a blast spending some much needed time together before the holidays!
– Cranberry juice.
– sugar (for the rim)
– cranberries to drop inside your cup
– simple syrup (just a dash)
Pour the champagne first, filling about 3/4 of your glass. Then fill the rest of your glass up with cranberry juice.
