DealDash

Christmas is coming next week. Have you finished planning your Christmas party yet? Read on for some tips from DealDash.

Christmas time is rapidly approaching and you may just find yourself in charge of a family Christmas party. Never fear though, as putting together a party like this is really a lot simpler then one would think. Here are a few tips to get you set on the right path, from DealDash.

Hurry, Invite Your Guests

Make sure that you let everyone know about the party as soon as possible. If you are short on time consider social media or email to tell your family about the party. This way you are giving people enough time to make arrangements to get to the party. You also want to make sure that you have a defined time for the party so family members know when the party starts and ends.  Gone are the days of using paper invitations. You can call, email, text, or even send an Evite. 

Planning the Meal

When planning for food, keep it as simple as possible. You can easily plan for finger foods to keep everyone happy during the party. If you are planning a big meal consider asking people to bring a dish to share.

Always make sure you take into account family member that might have food allergies when planning your Christmas party meal. You also might want to make sure that there is something to eat for any vegetarians in the family, or if anyone eats gluten-free. If there are any allergies or picky eaters in the family you don’t have to plan your menu specifically around them, but be sure that there are at least a few things that they will be able to eat.

Activities for Everyone

Make sure you have activities planned that appropriate for all ages. You need to be sure that every family member, no matter what their age, can participate in the activity if they want to do so. You can plan a couple of fun party games like wrapping a bunch of small gift in plastic wrap and watch everyone try to unwrap it. There are countless other party game ideas on the internet.

Other activities you might want to consider are watching a classic Christmas movie, caroling around the Christmas tree, or baking cookies together. Be sure to have a few board games out so that people can keep themselves entertained while you are busy with the other preparations.

Decorations Everywhere

Decorations really don’t have to be anything too complicated. In fact, just how you would normally decorate your home for Christmas is just fine for your family Christmas party. That will save you a good deal of time a stress in planning the party. Even if you don’t have a Christmas tree, no problem! A string of lights here or there, a wreath, or a couple of Christmas stockings will be just fine.

Win Some Party Favors on DealDash

What kind of Christmas party would it be without either some party favors or a white elephant exchange? You could win some awesome things on DealDash to give as favors such as earrings, candles, or kids items. Wouldn’t it be nice to surprise everyone with a little gift that you got from DealDash?

Time to Plan Your DealDash Halloween Party!

DealDashIf you’re going to have a Halloween party it’s time to start planning. Here are some tips from DealDash.

Are you a big fan of Halloween? Me too!! My kids are still rather small, though, one can barely walk. That’s not really a fun recipe for trick or treating. Until my kids are a little older it makes more sense for us to have a Halloween party at our house. Here are some suggestions to make your party a night of spooky fun, from DealDash.

Decide on the Food

Depending on the ages and stages of the kids that you’re inviting to the Halloween party you might not want to serve anything too messy. Ghost-shaped cookies, popcorn, and cupcakes with bat decorations on them could all be good choices for easy and not too messy party food. Just about anything can become Halloween party food if you stick a bat ring in it!

Fun with DealDash Home, Garden, Tools

Pumpkins are a must, they can be carved, left plain, or even drawn on with a black sharpie. There are many different ways to decorate pumpkins, and if you want them to last longer you will want to avoid carving them.

 

Next, check out the Home, Garden, and Tools category on DealDash. If you’re looking for some spooky decorations, DealDash has some. Large blow-up lawn decorations are very popular, and DealDash has this adorable black cat archway that will signal to party guests that they have arrived at the correct party location.

Is your Yard Ready?

 

Other than Halloween decorations, you’ll want to make sure that your yard is in tip-top condition for your party. Have you raked all of the leaves and put them into lawn bags? Did you plant any fall flowers to make your yard look beautiful? If you haven’t already purchased any solar path lights, now might be the time. If you let them charge up all day on the day of your party, you can put a white napkin with a rubber band to hold them on, and some drawn on eyes, and you will have some eerie, glowing ghosts for your party. All of these items and more can be found in the Home, Garden, and Tools category on DealDash.

Hello August – Time For a Summer Party!

DealDash

Happy August everyone! Get the grill ready, it’s time for a summer party!

I hate to say it, but it seems like the summer is just slipping away so quickly. Here it is, already August! I hope that you have your family has been enjoying the summer so far. There’s still a third of the summer left to go, let’s have a summer party! Get out the lawn games, BBQ grill, and iced tea. DealDash can help with the supplies. Read on for more tips on how to make your summer party a success.

Start the Party Preparations

Unless you entertain regularly, you’ll need to get some supplies for your party. Depending on the number of guests, you might have to stock up on some of the basics, such as paper plates and napkins. There are also questions that you’ll want to ask yourself such as “Is there enough seating for everyone?” and “How am I going to make sure that my guests are going to have a good time?”

You might want to start with making a list of the guests that you plan on inviting. After you have completed that you can decide if you need to get out the extra folding chairs for the patio or deck, or if you need to buy a few outdoor toys for younger guests. Because let’s face it, spending $5 buying a large ball and $1 buying some bubbles is an excellent investment to make so you don’t have to hear “I’m borrrrrred!”

What Are You Going to Serve?

Hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill are a must unless of course, you’re a vegetarian. Then I suppose you would be serving Boca Burgers and veggie dogs, instead! Other than the grilling basics, you need to decide what else you’ll be serving, and if you’ll be making it yourself, buying it prepared, or trying to convince your Aunt Sue to make her potato salad. Once you’ve decided the menu and if you’ll be preparing it, then it’s time to make a shopping list.

Be Sure the Grill is Ready

If you’ve been using your grill all summer long, then you probably don’t have to worry about this item too much. It would be wise of you to check the amount of gas or charcoal that you have left, though, because it certainly would be disappointing to run out during your party.

If your grill has seen better days, don’t fret! DealDash has a selection of grills up for auction, as well as hardware store gift cards if you don’t see the model that you want. Lowes has a huge selection of grills available, and DealDash often has Lowes gift cards up for auction. Be sure that your grill is in good shape and ready to party!

Christmas Party Suggestions from DealDash

 screenshot-12

Are planning your Christmas party for the year? There’s still a little time to get some items from DealDash!

Christmas parties are so much fun! I enjoy attending them rather than throwing them myself, luckily my family gets invited to a few Christmas parties every year, so I am not usually obliged to be the hostess. However, every couple of years we end up hosting, and I always need to get new things for the Christmas party because I tend to lose, give away, or throw away items from the previous years. DealDash always has great party items, let’s browse the auctions and see what we can find that would be great for your next Christmas party.

Food really makes the party, so you’re going to need some quality kitchen equipment. DealDash has some very high-end quality knives imported from both France and Japan, as well as stand mixers, juicers, blenders, pots & pans, and just about any small appliance that you can think of for your kitchen to cook your party food. Cooking is so much easier and more fun when you have quality knives and appliances to use.  If you are in need of anything other kitchen supplies check out DealDash’s Kitchen & Appliances section.

How else can DealDash help make things a little easier when planning your Christmas party? DealDash can help you decorate! Decorating both the outside and the inside of your home in a tasteful and classic way can make your party seem much more festive to your Christmas party goers. If you need some beautiful flatware and serving dishes, DealDash has them available for auction. Beautiful art, scented candles, and decorative clocks are also available on DealDash to get your home in shape for your Christmas party.

Having out-of-town guests in for your Christmas party can make it even more special. If your house isn’t quite guest friendly yet, you can always get a few items to make it more inviting. DealDash has some beautiful and ultra soft sheet sets, and even air beds and portable cots for kids if you don’t have enough beds to go around. Be sure that you’ve stocked up on the toilet paper and tissues as well – you’re going to need extra if you’re having overnight guests.

I hope that this article was helpful in getting some ideas for your next Christmas party.  If you need more supplies for your party you need to check out DealDash. Visit DealDash at this link here. Good luck and happy bidding everyone!

Throwing a Christmas Party? Get Help from DealDash

 

Are you throwing a Christmas party later on this month? There’s still time to get some assistance from DealDash!

 

Planning any sort of party can be hard work, especially Christmas parties, because I feel like there is more pressure put on to make the “perfect party” so much more so than a regular dinner party. My family gets invited to a few Christmas parties every year, and since weekend time is limited in December sometimes I find myself picking and choosing which party to attend. I can only assume that other families have this same issue, so if people choose to attend a Christmas party of mine instead of someone elses’ that year I feel obliged to show them a good time! Let’s take a quick peek at how DealDash can help make things a little easier when planning your Christmas party.

Have you decorated the outside of your house yet? This isn’t a requirement, of course, but decorating both the outside and the inside of your home in a tasteful and classic way can make your party seem much more festive to your Christmas party goers. There are both Target and Wal*Mart gift cards available on DealDash almost daily, and they are always shipped quickly and safely. If I was in need of more decorations I would bid on these gift cards and take advantage of some of the great sales that these places are running through Christmas and get some great decorations. You can find the gift cards at this link here.

 

Another part of having a great Christmas party is having great food, of course. If you have been paying attention to this blog in the past month or so you might have read my Thanksgiving blog. This blog can give you some pointers and ideas for making “real food” which can be found at this link here. However, in this blog I wanted to mention that it would be wonderful to bake some homemade Christmas cookies for your guests to eat at the party, or even make up small bags of them and send your guests home with cookies. Making cookie dough is infinitely easier of you have a great quality stand mixer like the KitchenAid. My daughter and I used mine this past weekend to make Christmas cookies, and even though I am 8 months pregnant and exhausted making the cookies this year with my KitchenAid was a breeze compared to last year when I had an inferior mixer. You can check out the different colors of KitchenAid stand mixers that DealDash has at this link here. I have the hot pink one! If you are in need of anything other kitchen supplies besides the mixer check out DealDash’s Kitchen & Appliances section.

 

 

I hope that these tips got you thinking about what an enjoyable and memorable Christmas party might entail. If you are looking for any more supplies for your party definitely check out DealDash – Don’t forget to get the mundane things such as extra paper towels, toilet paper, and tissues. Check the Home, Garden and Tools section at this link here, you wouldn’t want to run out while company is over! Good luck and happy bidding everyone!
