If planning a stress-free holiday party in NYC is at the top of your wish-list, then you’re in the right place!

I recently came across an article on Real Simple about planning a stress-free holiday party. “The Stress-Free Holiday Party Plan” offers some really helpful advice.

Here’s a quick summary:

Step 1: Serve food that’s both easy to make and impressive

Step 2: Avoid becoming a bartender with serve-yourself cocktails

Step 3: Manage the mood 

Step 4: Work some ‘behind-the-scenes’ magic

Step 5: Re-arrange the space to facilitate traffic flow

Step 6: Have a plan for signaling the party’s over

Step 7: Use a holiday party timeline

Step 8: Don’t sweat the small stuff

As a magician, I’ve performed for a lot of NYC holiday parties and worked with dozens of event planners. One of the most common things that’s overlooked is the mood of the party.

I’ve learned that it’s not just one thing that sets the mood for the holiday party: it’s the sum of all the little things that work together to create an ideal mood and atmosphere.

The event team, location, lighting, music, decorations, food and beverages, and entertainment all play an important role in setting the mood for your holiday party. 

I’m reminded of the time I performed for Columbia Medical Center’s Holiday Luncheon.

I performed my show for the children so that the adults had a chance to relax and enjoy the celebration. The children were falling over with laughter, wide-eyed with amazement, and mesmerized for a full hour. Both the children and adults had a great time.  

A professional entertainer can play a big role in making the planning of your holiday party stress-free.
