10 Ways to Liven Up Your Holiday Party
It's so worth it to do it right! Checkout our perfect tips for making your holiday party more festive:
Give Out Festive Party Favors
Make sure your flair for the festivities stands out this holiday season. Put your own spin on timeless traditions with personalized gift bags or keep the jolly times flowing with these stemless wine glasses.
There’s no limit to how creative you can get with your party favors, but if you don’t have time to work your magic this year, there are so many more amazing creations waiting for you over at Etsy.
Make A Menu of Signature Holiday Cocktails
Spirits beget spirit, and that’s even more true for the holiday kind. Be the merry mixologist at this year’s bash with some seriously flavorful and refreshing cocktails, like jingle juice, or a Santa Clausmopolitan. Yup, that’s a thing -- a very delicious thing.
Bust Out the Christmas Karaoke
Once the cocktails have been flowing for a while, your guests might not be able to contain their merrymaking much longer. Why not line up a few of your favorite holiday instrumentals and sing your hearts out? Most songs even feature videos on Youtube with the lyrics, like this Mariah Carey classic.
Send Out Themed Invitations
Nothing tends to get partygoers more psyched than themed invitations. There’s no shortage of themes to go with, from an ugly sweater soiree to something a little bit sweeter, you’re bound to find something that gets your guests in the mood.
Go All Out with the Decorations
The song tells you to “deck the halls,” but this year, really, really deck them. You can even personalize your ornaments to give your party that added custom touch.
Get Creative with the Treats
From stencils to molds and everything in between, there’s no limit to how creative you can get with your yule tide confections. Satisfy every sweet tooth in the house while serving up holiday cheer at the same time.
Play White Elephant or Secret Santa
Whether you’re trying to save a little cash this year, or you just want to spice up your gift-giving, White Elephant or secret santa are both great ways to kick things off. And best of all, gone are the days of writing everybody’s name on a paper and picking one out of a hat. Site’s like Elfster take all the hassle out of the process, letting you draw guests’ names online. And you can even set drawing restrictions, just to make sure mom and dad don’t get each other again this year.
Incorporate Themed Dress or Costumes
Have you ever served Rudolph a cup of eggnog? Have you ever square danced with a snowman? Why not this year? Encourage your guests to don their finest holiday garb. If you really want to up the ante, hold a costume contest. You’ll be surprised how many reindeer stop by to visit.
Have A Fire Christmas Playlist
Keep the music coming this year with a music service like Spotify. Whether you’re looking for timeless Christmas carols to something a little more modern, you’re bound to find the perfect mix for your get-together.
When it comes down to it, we love the holidays because it gives us the warm fuzzies on the inside. Nothing makes you feel warmer or fuzzier than the knowledge that you gave back at the end of another year.
Make it count this year by making a donation to groups like Make-A-Wish, St. Jude’s Childrens Hospital, or the American Cancer Society. There are really no wrong choices here, as long as you’re doing your part to spread a little cheer far and near.

I'll admit that I am no fashion expert, nor do I explore more than 3 colors at a time for myself. Someones mom once said that any 3 colors match and I took that to heart. Needless to say, I am a 3-color kind of girl, but when our team heard about the fashion show for Dell Children's CBCC Fashion Show, we had to participate! 2017 marks the 3rd year that we will support the sweet kiddos as they bring their A-Game to the Runway! Checkout some of the awesome photos from www.zappysprings.com! If you would like to participate with us, we would be delighted to have you!

Events Unleashed had the pleasure of planning a non-profit event in Austin, Texas for the Austin City Manager Farewell, Mr. Marc A Ott.
In 2008, Marc Ott became the first African American to hold the position of Austin City Manager. During his tenure, Ott strategically guided Austin through challenging economic times, resulting in Austin topping the charts in ranking, including being ranked number one on the Forbes list of America’s Fasting Growing Cities.
As part of this exciting celebration to acknowledge Marc Ott’s accomplishments there were more than 300 attendees present sharing words of appreciation and gratitude for his hard work over 8+ years of service to the Austin community.
Below is the recap video that was created by the Austin Revitalization Authority to highlight the night.
