5 Smart Things to Bring to a Party

Being a great guest starts with RSVPing properly, showing up on time and ends with a graceful goodbye and a thank you note sent to the host. One of the most important things a gracious guest should remember is something that we all have been told from a young age; never show up at a party empty handed. Here are five items that you can bring with you to the next party you are invited to.

 Flowers: You can never go wrong when you bring flowers to a party. Fresh cut, colorful flowers always fit the spirit of fun and joy of a party. It's best if you bring an arrangement that is already in a vase, is in a basket or is a live plant. That way the host doesn't have to spend time finding a vase and arranging the flowers. No worries if you can't bring such an arrangement. Most people won't mind going the extra mile for a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Do you know what your host's favorite flower or color is? Awesome! Use this knowledge when you are picking up the arrangement.
 Alcohol: Here is another perfect item to bring to your next gathering. Wine, champagne, beer or any hard liquor are always welcomed at any gathering. You can ask your host beforehand if there is any sort of beverages they prefer you bring that will go with the theme or food at the party. You can also think of a specialty cocktail ahead of time, get all of the ingredients to make it and bring them to the party.

 Food: For some parties (especially holiday parties) you might be asked to bring a specific dish which makes the job of choosing what type of food you want to bring pretty darn easy. Unless it's a formal dinner or a party that has been catered, you can always surprise the host by bringing an appetizer or side dish. Just make sure you bring something that is ready to be served. You don't want to add more tasks for your host.

Perfect for the Holidays 

Instead of giving the gift of clutter this year, consider giving the gift of peace of mind. Mission 2 Organize will send a gift certificate in any amount to the person of your choosing. Don't spend your hard earned money on stuff that your family and friends will need to dust off or put in storage. They deserve the magic touch of organization!

A Message from Our Co-founders...

Working with our clients is such a joy for us. We have met some brilliant, interesting and fun people through our work and the fact that we love what we're doing makes the organizing experience so invigorating. 

Two recent clients described the feeling following their organizing sessions as "refreshing". When our clients tell us how much we have made a positive influence on their lives and express their gratitude to us, we fill up with pride. We're proud of the thriving business we've built, the service we provide and of our clients who put their trust in us. 

This summer, we helped a client set the stage for his 50th birthday party. It was a very special occasion for which friends had flown into town. Mission 2 Organize handled the furniture placement plus the rental of tables, chairs, place settings and glassware. The night of the party, we set the celebratory scene with bright candles, flowers and little touches like a steamed tablecloth. With all of these little details taken care of, our client was able to mingle with his guests and enjoy his moment. 

If you're hosting a party anytime soon, you may want to catch up on some of our free videos on M2O-TV. In particular, our videos, How 2 Make DIY Party DecorationsHow 2 Arrange Flowers and How 2 Make DIY Holiday Party Centerpieces could really come in handy!
