Planning a party at home | How to be the perfect host

The festive season is upon us and the clock is ticking if you are planning a party at home. Hosting a party does not have to be stressful if you are organised and plan ahead.

A hot tip when organising a party is... lists, lists, lists! 

Not only do you need to sort your guest list, but you need to think about themes, drinks, playlists, menu and decorations. Then it is onto organising outdoor spaces. Serving in-season food. Checking dietary requirements. Styling tables, grazing boards and lighting up the night with fairy lights or festoon lighting.
