Why You Should Choose to Host a Formal Thanksgiving Party

Each year, an unlimited number of Thanksgiving parties are held. Are you looking to host one this year? If so, have you decided which type of Thanksgiving party you would like to have? Unfortunately, a large number of party guests do not realize that they actually have a choice. Truth be told, you do. You can either have a causal Thanksgiving party or a formal Thanksgiving party. Although many party hosts choose to have casual parties, you will find that there are a number of benefits to planning and hosting a formal Thanksgiving party.

Perhaps, the greatest reason why many party hosts choose to make their Thanksgiving party a formal one is because they enjoy elegant events. How formal you would like to go is completely up to you, but a large number of party hosts request that their party guests arrive in formal apparel or, at least, in eveningwear. Although you may think that most of your guests would prefer to arrive in jeans, that isn’t always in the case. Many adults enjoy attending elegant events, but many are just unable to. Your formal Thanksgiving party may give your guests the excuses that they wanted to wear that elegant evening dress or suit that has been sitting in the back of their closet for ages.

Another reason why you should think about hosting a formal Thanksgiving party is because of the holiday. In the past, holidays were associated with formal and elegant events and attire. While these events do still exist today, it seems as many of us have gotten to use to tossing on a pair of jeans for Thanksgiving dinner. While that is still possible to wear casual clothing to a Thanksgiving party or dinner, a holiday as special as Thanksgiving should be celebrated in style.

If you enjoy planning parties, a formal Thanksgiving party may be right for you. Although all parties, including casual Thanksgiving parties do require some preparation; you will see that formal Thanksgiving parties require more. While this may be considered a disadvantage, it doesn’t necessarily have to be, especially if you enjoy party planning. A formal Thanksgiving party will enable you to show off your party planning skills. It is always assumed that those who plan elegant, formal parties are the best at what they do and all of your party guests will easily be able to see that.

If you do make the decision to plan a formal Thanksgiving party, you can choose to do your party in any way that you see fit; however, many party hosts make their formal Thanksgiving parties adult only. A formal, adult only Thanksgiving party has an unlimited number of benefits, all on its own. You many find that more guests are willing to attend your party, particularly those that are not parents, but even those who are parents will likely attend. Adults, whether they have children are not, always enjoy the opportunity to socialize in an adult setting and what better setting than a formal Thanksgiving party?

Although there is a good chance that you may be interested in planning a formal Thanksgiving party, there is also a chance that you might not be interested. As nice as formal Thanksgiving parties are, they are not required. As the party host, you have the ability to choose exactly what you want or do not want your Thanksgiving party to be.

Why You Should Choose to Host a Causal Thanksgiving Party

Are you interested in hosting a Thanksgiving party this year? If so, you are definitely not alone. Each year, millions of Americans think about hosting a Thanksgiving party; however, many never end up doing so. One of the many reasons for that is the wrong assumption. Many individuals mistakenly believe that a Thanksgiving party needs to be an elegant or a formal event. While there are a number of benefits to hosting a formal Thanksgiving party, there are also a number of benefits to hosting a casual one.

Perhaps, the greatest benefit to hosting a causal Thanksgiving party is the preparation time. While your casual Thanksgiving party will still require some planning and preparation, you will find that it is much less than the planning needed for a formal party. This, alone, may make you want to host a casual thanksgiving party. Casual Thanksgiving parties enable you to have the party that you wanted to, without consuming all of your time.

In addition to saving time, you will also find that a casual Thanksgiving party may help you save money. It is no secret that to plan a formal or elegant Thanksgiving party, you need to go all out. The same does not have to be said for casual Thanksgiving parties. At a casual Thanksgiving party you could easily get away with putting out a few snacks and a choice of multiple beverages. If your guests know, ahead of time, that your Thanksgiving party is a casual one, they will not expect the works.

You may also find that it is easier to choose entertainment for a causal party than it is a formal Thanksgiving party. With a casual Thanksgiving party, as previously mentioned, your guests are not expecting to be treated as if they were at a four star hotel. Instead, they will likely expect to have fun. Luckily for you, there are an unlimited number of different forms of entertainment that are just perfect for casual parties. This means that in addition to music and dancing, you could easily play a number of other fun holiday games; games that might not necessarily fit in at a formal Thanksgiving party.

A casual Thanksgiving party may be ideal if you or a large number of your guests are parents. When attending a formal party, even a Thanksgiving party, most parents are asked to leave their children at home. While some parents do not mind doing so, there are others who may. That is why a casual Thanksgiving party may be great, whether you have kids yourself or a number of party guests do. With a few activities, such as party games, centered towards children, the children, as well as the adults, could easily enjoy themselves at your next Thanksgiving party.

While there are a number of different reasons why you may want to host a causal Thanksgiving party, there are also a number of reasons why your guests may want you to host one; one of those reasons being the cost of attending your party. With a casual Thanksgiving party, your guests may choose to arrive in jeans or a nice pair of pants; often something that they already own. When it comes to formal Thanksgiving parties, it is not uncommon for guests to go out and purchase new, potentially expensive, eveningwear. A casual Thanksgiving party may make it so your guests do not have to pay to come to your party.

As previously mentioned, even casual parties require some planning and preparation. To ensure that your next casual Thanksgiving party, if you decide to have one, goes off exactly as planned, you are urged to start planning for your party in advance. Depending on the size of your party, it may be a good idea to start your planning, at least, a month in advance. The larger the size of your party, the earlier you may want to start your planning.

You will need to decide whether you would like to do so or not. If you only plan on serving snacks at your party, you will want to keep the time of your party in mind. If you host a party around lunch or dinnertime, your guests might assume that you will be feeding them a whole meal.

It is also important that you determine whether or not you will want to have an all adult party or a party for both kids and adults. This, alone, may change your mind about hosting a Thanksgiving party. Adult parties are ideal because they give adults a chance to sit back, relax, and enjoy themselves. The only problem with an adult only Thanksgiving party is that there is a good chance that some of your party guests may have kids. If you are against having children present at your party, it may be a good idea to decide this ahead of time. You will not want to have some guests bring their children, while others do not. If you cannot make a decision or say no to some of your guests, it may be a good idea to hold off on the Thanksgiving party.

This may help you determine the cost of throwing a Thanksgiving party. If you find it difficult to afford a party, it may be a good idea to cut back on your guests, as well as the food that you plan on serving, or else you might not even want to host a party after all.

Although it may seem as if there are a number of disadvantages to throwing a Thanksgiving party, there really aren’t that many. In fact, there are also a number of advantages to hosting a Thanksgiving party. One of those advantages is that you get to spend the holidays with those that you know and love. Honestly, you will have to make your own decision, but it may be a good idea to keep the above mentioned points in mind.
