Christina Currie knows how to throw a party, so much so that she turned her skills into a thriving business. But Christina Currie Events in Barrington does more than plan weddings and special occasions. They have become the go-to experts in the area for throwing events of all descriptions.
With the holidays upon us, we asked Currie and her crew to share their top five tips for planning a party at home that will have people talking into the new year.
HERE’S WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY
Start with spreading the holiday cheer by sending personalized invitations three to four weeks in advance of your event. It’s a classic and classy move that instantly elevates any party.
Make your spirits brighter with a dazzling signature drink. It’s such a welcoming treat and really brings everyone together as they sip the same cocktail.
Turn off your bright overhead lights and use amber votive holders, which give off a warm glow. Decorate with metallic accents—they’re instantly festive and bounce light around.
To infuse your party with holiday cheer, add live jazz artists. A simple trio of musicians playing everyone’s favorite holiday songs will add a festive vibe the entire evening.
Keep it simple with white dishware, classic tumblers, and wine glasses, but show off your personality with a bold cocktail napkin.
