Nail down your date ASAP.
The holidays are super hectic for most people, and scheduling conflicts are inevitable. The closer you wait until the holidays, the more booked up people will be. If you’re hosting your party here at our Deer Park skating rink or another party venue, you’ll need to book your party sooner rather than later for the same reason. Holiday party slots are going fast, so don’t put it off any longer.
Remember to send your invitations out as soon as your party is booked so people have plenty of time to work your event into their holiday party plans. Most people these days would prefer a digital invitation anyway, so find your favorite and spread the word.
Set your event apart.
We’ve all been to the same run-of-the-mill neighborhood get-togethers and office parties for years, so why not liven things up with a unique party theme? A roller skating party is the perfect way to enjoy time with your favorite people in a festive atmosphere, without all the work of throwing a party at home. A built-in activity is the perfect way to ensure everyone gets in on the fun, and skating is fun for everyone from little kids to seniors.
Spread the holiday cheer.
The holiday season is all about warm hearts and generosity, so use your party to spread the good vibes by organizing a food drive (or books, toys, coats, etc.). Make sure you check with your local charities to see what they need, and encourage your guests to bring a donation with them to the party. Afterwards, you can donate everything you collected to the local food bank, foster kids program, Toys for Tots, homeless shelter, or other organization.
Give gifts with a twist.
If you plan to exchange gifts during your party, consider switching things up with one of these unique gift exchange ideas. Secret Santa is a classic, but you can also try Dirty Santa, White Elephant, Hot Potato, even a cookie swap or handmade gift exchange! If you know your guests all have similar interests (coffee, books) you could even do a gift exchange of all mugs, all books, etc.
