Throwing A Pajama Party Promises Fun And Excitement For Your Guests

Everybody loves being comfortable, and everyone loves wearing pajamas. Pajamas are not only comfortable but they’re also stylish. You can get pajamas in a variety of different designs from different television shows and movies, as well as any cool pattern you can think of! Some of the fondest memories I have from when I was younger was putting on my pajamas and heading to my friend’s house for a pajama party.

Pajama parties don’t need to end at childhood, though, they make pajamas in all different sizes for everyone. Throwing a pajama party for adults could be fun and memorable, but where do you start? Think about the food you’d like to serve first. People usually wear pajamas in the morning when they eat breakfast so consider serving breakfast foods such as french toast and waffles. The drinks you serve can be breakfast themed alcoholic drinks, like mimosas and screwdrivers.

You can turn a pajama party into any themed party. If you wanted to host a movie night, you could make that a pajama-themed movie night. Throwing a pajama-themed game night would ensure that everyone is comfortable and no one has to take too long getting ready! If you wanted to go full on old school, you could even have your pajama party be an overnight get together where everyone sleeps in the same room on the floor. All in all, any kind of pajama party you’d like to throw, it’s guaranteed to be a good time.

Three Tips For Planning A Winter Wedding

nakwyyh849o-quentin-dr

When it comes to getting married, there’s a lot of planning that goes into having the best day you can. You need to pick a venue, make a guest list, hire a caterer, and taste many different flavors of cakes. Although, tasting as much cake as you can seems like the opposite of a problem.

If you’re considering having your wedding in the winter season, there are a few things you should be keeping in mind. Check out these three tips that if followed, will ensure you have a flawless winter wonderland wedding.

Don’t Forget That Things Are More Expensive In The Winter

A lot of people don’t know this about winter but the prices for most things go up when the temperature goes down. Flights become more expensive, the prices of hotel rooms shoot up, and florists inflate their prices to cover the struggle of having flowers in the cold season. If you’re planning on having a destination winter wedding, or just a winter wedding in general, be prepared to spend more than usual.

Integrate Winter Themes Into Your Décor

After you’ve picked the venue for your wedding and reception, there are still loads to do. You’ll have to pick the centerpieces that go on the tables, the party favors that your guests will take away, and the overall feel for the environment. If you’re having a winter wedding, you might want to consider incorporating the season into your theme and decorations. You could even save some money by creating paper snowflakes yourself at home and using them to decorate your venue.

Take The Harsh Winter Weather Into Account

Couples, more often than not, prefer to have their actual ceremony outdoors. If your wedding is going to take place in the winter and you’re having the ceremony outdoors then you should be taking the weather into account. When you pick out your bridesmaid dresses, are you thinking about how warm they’ll be? What about your guests who will be sitting outside watching you tie the knot? You might want to consider renting a tent or a canopy to help keep your wedding party warm. Sure, you’ll have a beautiful looking ceremony, but at what cost?

Three Tips For Throwing A Great Tea Party

regndznrpt8-anete-lusina

Most people out there in the world enjoy drinking tea. It’s bigger in Europe than anywhere else, but that doesn’t mean people elsewhere in the world aren’t also enjoying tea. One of the most popular types of parties that you can throw is the tea party. What is a tea party exactly? It’s actually a little more involved than it sounds. A tea party is a gathering of your close friends and colleagues where you enjoy tea and appetizer-size snacks and enjoy each other’s company.

One of these parties is usually on the fancier side. If you attend one of these parties you might get to enjoy the clean aesthetic that comes with a tea party. If you’re planning on throwing your own tea party, check out these three tips on how you can make your party great,

Kick Off Your Party With A Tasting

The great thing about tea is the crazy amount of flavors you have to choose from. You can go classic lemon flavor, earl grey, or you can even choose a flavor that’s more fruity in taste. You can kick your party off with a small tasting of a variety of flavors so everyone can find out which tea is perfect for them, without having to commit to an entire glass that might go wasted.

Serve Themed Treats

There is nothing cooler than themed food at a party. If you attend a Halloween party, you might be indulging on a bowl full of spooky punch. Even at a Christmas party, you’ll see gingerbread cookies waiting to be eaten on a tray. Serving themed treats that go along with a tea party is a surefire way of making your party a hit. One option for you is Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Tea Bag Cookies, which you can read the recipe for HERE.

Use Teacups As Bowls For Candy And Snacks

You’re throwing a party and you have way too many teacups and fancy plates for the amount of guests that will be in attendance. Don’t store those cups away, put them to good use! Use your extra cups as serving bowls for candies or snacks that people can snack on as your party goes on. Jellybeans are a prime example of a party snack that will not only look great displayed on the table, but is also delicious.

And If you’re just looking to have your party catered to take all of the workload off of yourself, ask for our catering suggestions. You won’t be disappointed!

Four Easy To Make Hors D’oeuvres For Your Party

rygidtavhkq-dave-lastovskiy

Not everybody loves to attend parties, or rather throw them. Everyone, however, loves eating hors d’oeuvres. If you don’t already know, hors d’oeuvres are small, almost snack like in size, portions of food that are served during the early parts of a party. Usually, prior to dinner, these delicious edibles are designed to be eaten by hand, either with a toothpick or with your own fingers.

Which hors d’oeuvres do you choose to be served at your party? If you have to make them yourself, or even if you just want delicious food served, you might want to stay a little more on the simple side to ensure enough food can be made within a certain time frame. Check out these four easy to make hors d’oeuvres you could serve at your party,

Brown Sugar Wrapped Pigs In A Blanket

Everybody loves the classic pig in a blanket. Something about miniature hot dogs wrapped in dough puts people in a good mood. This recipe replaces that dough with bacon and then adds even more flavor to it with another secret ingredient.

Salami & Cream Cheese Bites

Whether it’s meats wrapped in cheese or cheese wrapped in meats, people will scarf it down like it’s nobody’s business. This particular recipe calls for only two ingredients and can be made in a flash if you run out of everything else.

Chicken Parmesan Slider

Have you ever asked yourself why such a fancy meal like Chicken Parmesan doesn’t come in a quick, more convenient size? Me neither! A bite size chicken parm is exactly what your party needs to give it a unique feel. People will be talking about your party for dozens of days.

Chicken & Waffle Sliders

Another addition to the slider family is the chicken and waffle sliders. Chicken and waffles are known to the world as being delicious and now you can serve it to your guests in bite size form.

Things You Should Consider When Planning Your Staten Island Holiday Party

staten-island-holiday-parties

The holiday season is upon us and if you work in an office then you might be seeing an office Christmas party in your future. If you are in charge of planning the event then you have a lot of tasks ahead of you. You’ll need to organize the food and beverage situation. Will you allow alcohol to be served or do you want it to be a dry party? A lot of decisions have to be made and you have to be the one to make them.

One of the core decisions you need to make is where your party is to be held. You have two options when it comes to hosting your holiday Christmas party. You can either host the event in your office, or you can rent a place out and host it there.

If you host the party in your office, you’ll have to find a big enough space to comfortably squeeze everyone in with enough room for people to stand with their co-workers as well as extra room to fit chairs for people to sit. You’ll also need space to fit the tables that will hold the food. You will end up saving a bunch by not outsourcing the location for your party but you might be at a loss if you don’t have enough space for everything.

Your other option for hosting your office Christmas party is to rent out a hall or an event space. By spending the extra money to host your event in a space, you actually save yourself a lot of trouble. You don’t have to make sure you have enough chairs or tables because they will more than likely be provided for you. You also have the added option of hiring a wait staff to serve the food and drinks to your guests, which will make your holiday Christmas party one to remember.

Unique Party Ideas For The Holiday Season

unique-holiday-parties

The wintertime is the most magical time of the year. The snow, to most, is an unwelcome guest that routinely and annually wreaks havoc among the streets. The holidays themselves, however, are worth any trouble the snow or the cold weather might give us. Thanksgiving and Christmas are two of the most magical and important times of the year.

For Thanksgiving you get to indulge on a multitude of delicious food and then after you’re full you continue to eat an even more filling dessert. And for Christmas, you get to feast your eyes on some of the most glorious holiday light decorations that coat most houses in your neighborhood. You get to decorate your own house, both inside and out.

The holiday season is generally an all around great time and what better way to celebrate the jolly season than with a theme party! Check out these party ideas below and see which one best suits you.

Ugly Sweater Christmas Party

Everyone enjoys ugly Christmas sweaters, even the people who say they don’t enjoy them. An ugly sweater Christmas party is one of the more common themed parties you might see popping up around the holidays.

All the guests in attendance have no choice but to show up donning their best, or worst, ugly Christmas sweater and have an all around ugly time. A fun extra idea for your party is to offer a prize for the best dressed!

Friendsgiving

Thanksgiving is that one time of year that almost your entire family, close or not, come together for one thankful dinner together in celebration of unity and togetherness. Seeing your family is all well and good but do you ever just wish there was a version of Thanksgiving but instead includes you and all of your friends?

Friendsgiving is definitely for you. Plan a night together with all of your friends to eat a Thanksgiving dinner and put everyone in charge of their own dish. It’s a great way to have a memorable night with your closest friends as well as an enjoyable dinner that everyone helped create.

Holiday Movie Marathon Party

One of the best parts of Christmas is the holiday movies that come with it. The Santa Clause, The Polar Express, Miracle on 34th Street – There’s literally too many to name! I could start naming them right now and wouldn’t be finished until well into the New Year.

A great way to bring holiday movies into your party is to just throw a party specifically for watching holiday movies. Pick four, five, or even six movies that you and some friends can all enjoy back to back. You can rent a popcorn-popping machine so everyone can enjoy as much as they want! The Christmas movie combination ideas are endless!

Thanksgiving Cocktail Party

A unique idea for a Thanksgiving dinner is the Thanksgiving cocktail party. If you’ve never been to a cocktail party, it’s a party that leans more on the fancier side. Everyone dresses up and hors d’oeuvres are passed around for everyone to enjoy. Hors d’oeuvres are usually smaller portions of food that act almost like appetizers but end up being the only food available.

A Thanksgiving-themed cocktail party follows the same template. Everyone dresses fancy and hors d’oeuvres are passed around except they aren’t regular hors d’oeuvres. Instead, all of the food being passed around is smaller portions of Thanksgiving food. The cocktails being served can also be Thanksgiving-themed. They can be made to taste like pies, and other sweet after dinner treats.

How To Throw A Great Family Reunion

Everybody has a family, and everybody has those family members that live hundreds to thousands of miles away. Maybe they’re trying to find a life away from you, or maybe they just prefer the warm weather of the west coast to the varying confusing weather on the east coast. Ask yourself when was the last time you saw every member of your family in one place, if the answer is too long ago, then you might be in need of a family reunion.

Family reunions aren’t like your run of the mill party. You’re going to need one core element: Your family! Before you even start calling caterers or getting quotes to rent out a space, the first thing you should do is call up the members of your family and see if anyone is even interested in getting together for some appetizers and dancing. You don’t want to rent out a venue for the same people you could have over your house on a Tuesday Night.

Come to a consensus with everyone in your family about when would be the best time to commence gathering and after you have your date, it’s off to the races. You’ll need a venue and most of all food and activities. You could prepare a slideshow that houses plenty of photos of the whole family for everyone to enjoy. You could have a book at the front where all attending family members could sign next to a picture of themselves. The ideas are endless but don’t worry, don’t be overwhelmed. We’re here to help.

Chez Vous Catering and Party Rentals is your ticket to a great party. Providing services that vary between birthday parties and barbecues, all the way to weddings and office parties. Whatever you need, Chez Vous has got it covered for you.

Why You Should Have A Stage Built For Your Event

oatyhejmm9e-jens-johnsson

When it comes to planning a party, there are a few things that people don’t typically think about or take into consideration. No one forgets the food, the decorations, or the invitations. Those are the most crucial parts of a party, aside from the actual guests. If you hired a band, where will the band set themselves up? You can’t have them in the middle of the venue; they’ll get in the way.

If you did hire a band, do people have a safe place to dance and get jiggy with it? If you have a band, or a performance queued up for your event, you might want to consider having a temporary stage built, as well as a dance floor installed. It sounds very eccentric but it really is quite a simple addition to your event. By having a stand installed, you give the band a set place to play that is not only safe but also ensures that they won’t be in anybody’s way.

If you’re in need of a dance floor to go with your stage, or maybe even just by itself, then you’re in luck. As easy as it is to have a stage built for your event, it is just as easy to have a dance floor put in. By adding a dance floor to your event space, you create a set area for people to dance and it gives your party a nice centerpiece that tables can surround.

Overall, having a stage and/or a dance floor installed for your party will ensure that your party is not only safe but also one to remember.

Four Interesting Centerpieces That Aren’t Floral Themed

lu4tuhmiks4-annie-spratt

Centerpieces are, well, the centerpiece of tables at most parties or events. They are taken very seriously at weddings and they help when it comes to organizing the tables. Most of the time when you’re attending a party, the centerpieces will be an assortment of flowers of varying types. The idea that a centerpiece has to be a bouquet of flowers is old news. After a while, the same idea over and over again gets boring and stale. You need to keep your wedding and party fresh and interesting.

Instead of rehashing the same old idea, replace the drab flowers with one of these four interesting centerpiece ideas,

Photo Luminaries

Whether it’s a wedding, an anniversary, or even just a family party, creating a centerpiece filled with photographs of the people of honor is a great way to bring a personal touch to your event. These are easy to make yourself at home, which could end up saving you tons of cash when planning.

 

Door Knob Table Numbers

At your event, you might have a lot of tables spread out among the venue. Every table will have specific people that are supposed to sit there but how will those people know which table is which? Adding these door knob table numbers will not only help people find their assigned tables but will also bring a sense of style to your event.

 

Cactus/Air Plants

If you want to keep the plant vibe going with your centerpieces, replace the flowers with a cactus or a stylish air plant. It’ll be a great conversation starter among your guests and doubles as an interactive party favor for a select lucky few.

 

Fun Fact Cards

This one is quite arguably the most fun and personal item on this list. Let’s say you’re attending a wedding or an anniversary party, these cards will be printed with fun facts about the lovely couples that people at the table can read. Every table could read a different fact or tidbit, which would encourage people to get up and socialize with other tables.

5 Easy Unique desserts You Can Make For Your Party

dessert

When you’re throwing a party, whether it’s in your own home or your place of work, it becomes your responsibility that everyone has an enjoyable experience. The music has to bring life to your party, and the food has to be delicious enough to keep people wanting more.

It is easy to argue what the best part of a party should be. A lot of people might say the food and others might say the decorations. But what most people don’t seem to think about are the desserts. Food is all well and good but what people ultimately want at the end of the day is the sweet stuff. Delicious desserts and after dinner treats live deep in everyone’s hearts.

Here is a list of five easy to make at home unique desserts that’ll promise to make your party a home run,

Cake Pops

Cake pops have become a classic two-bite treat that is easy to make at home. You can make them in a variety of different flavors and you could even add a creamy filling to the center. It’s all about your preference!

Oreo Cheesecake Bites

Everybody loves Oreos, except for vegans. There’s something about the classic chocolate cookie and cream sandwich combination that make people go crazy. Aside from eating them as-is, there is a variety of different things you can do to Oreos to enhance their already delicious flavor. One of those things you can make is Oreo Cheesecake Bites.

Cookie Dough Dip

Chocolate chip cookies are delicious and most people will claim it’s their favorite type of cookie. People love to risk getting sick by chowing down on some raw chocolate chip cookie dough because that’s just how delicious it is. But what if you took the concept of dipping potato chips into dip and instead made a sweet cookie dough dip that you could dip graham crackers in? Sounds exquisite.

Homemade Rice Krispie Treats

This is most likely the easiest sweet on this list to prepare. You can make tons and tons of this stuff in under an hour, which is a win if you ask me. You could always buy a few boxes of Rice Krispy Treats at the store but nothing will beat the test of the handmade, homemade ones.

S’mores Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

S’mores is an all-time classic camp out treat that you can make anywhere. If you somehow haven’t heard of them, it’s a three-ingredient treat that you heat over a fire that anyone who loves chocolate will enjoy. Check out this recipe for a S’mores/chocolate chip cookie combination.
