Perhaps the least stressful, most relaxing way to celebrate the holidays is with an open house for your friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, and all the people that are important in your life. The concept of an open house is a party without a set schedule of events where guests can stop in at their convenience and stay as long as they wish. The dress for a holiday open house is usually somewhere between semi-formal and casual so that your guests will feel comfortable and relaxed – ready to celebrate this wonderful time of the year together!
If you want to give the guests a sneak preview of the wonderful delectables that will be available at your open house, send out one of our invitations to wet their appetites! Attach a small candy cane to the invitation for a special treat that they don’t have to wait for!
Some people prefer to send out unique, homemade invitations. If you are one of those creative people, use a black felt-tip marker to print the details of the party on a bright red glass Christmas ornament. These will need to be packaged in a small box and sent or hand delivered to make sure nothing gets broken!
Another adorable idea is to send a pair of woolly mittens out as an invitation. Attach a note with ribbon stating that guests should come and warm up with friends during this special season.
Include a little fun into whatever invitation you choose by adding some holiday confetti in the envelope.
