Does the thought of throwing a holiday party make you break out into a cold sweat and hide until the New Year? Check out our 6 tips for throwing a stress-free holiday soiree, and learn how Famoso 4th Street can make entertaining a breeze.

1. Create a Signature Party Cocktail

A signature party cocktail is a fun addition to any gathering. Premix a few pitchers, put out glasses and ice, and guests will be able to help themselves.

2. Scratch Perfection

Your friends aren’t going to remember that your shelves were a little dusty, they will, however, remember all the fun they had. Don’t let the fact that your space or cooking skills might not be Pinterest-worthy stop you from gathering your friends and enjoying the holidays together.

3. Finger Foods are more fun

Rather than an elaborate plated dinner, opt for easy to grab finger foods. Try roasted ham sliders, a great charcuterie board, a crudité plate and bite-sized pumpkin tarts. Don’t want to cook at all? Move on to tip #4.

4. Break Tradition and Order In

Don’t love cooking? Does the thought of spending the day in the kitchen prevent you from hosting a party all together? Order in! Your guest will be thrilled to dig into Famoso 4th Street’s authentic Neapolitan pizza. Try out their new fall and winter menu items, the Korean BBQ Pulled Beef Pizza and the Funghi Pizza. When choosing your options, be sure to include a vegetarian option like the delicious Roasted Cauliflower Pizza.

5. Outsource Completely

Want to host a party without any of the responsibilities? Skip the prep work and clean up by holding your party in Famoso 4th Street’s semi-private room. Perfect for large groups, their lower dining room can seat up to 25 people.

6. Say no to Pinterest

One google search for Christmas party décor and you’ll be falling down the rabbit hole that is Pinterest. Keep your decorating in check with a few classic and simple holiday touches. Buy inexpensive greenery like evergreen branches, or even trim them from your own trees, add in a few glowing candles, and the scene is set. A glass bowl filled with ornaments is also a lovely, easy to assemble, centerpiece.
