Party Schedule Setting Tips for the Perfect Party

It is winter now. That makes it one of the best seasons to review some party schedule setting tips for the perfect party. Why? Because depending on where you live, winter means it can be cold, rainy, icy, snowy, or otherwise shady enough to keep you indoors most of the time. So it’s also one of the best times of the year to gather some friends for a party. Luckily, the global tolada family is here to be your party inspiration!

When was the last time you took a break for yourself? Just slow down and spend quality time with good friends? Afternoon tea provides an excellent opportunity to turn a daily routine into a heartwarming one. Brew your favorite tea flavor and enjoy it with a leaf and tree ceramic tea set. Thai artist Putu Oka Mahendra used soothing colours and banana leaf designs to create a calm and relaxing stage for this piece. Light a candle or two in these orchid-shaped ceramic candle holders, and now you’ve created a cozy winter setting for you and your guests.

Need to take entertainment up a notch? In our busy world, where many of us are primarily connected through technology, an easy way to get back to basics is a wine tasting. Call a few friends and tell everyone to bring their favorite wine and snacks and BAM – you’ve got yourself a party! Use this distinctive lizard-themed hand-carved wooden wine rack as a focal point to accentuate the wine being served.

Sipping your wine from a colorful and elegant base, such as the Forest Mirage hand-blown wine glass, can easily make this party feel even more special. Another trick I love to really change the mood is to use napkin holders, like these handcrafted gem-encrusted napkin rings from India. No one can argue that they bring that extra classroom vibe to your table.

Now, if you happen to live in a climate that stays warm all winter… well, you’re in luck! For others, now is the time to go all out. If you can’t go to a warm and festive place, bring that vibe to you. For moments like this, my party theme of choice is Fiesta Fries and Salsa/Margarita. In the heart of winter, this is sure to convince the biggest hermit among us to come out and join in the fun.

Choose a pitcher that is super festive, like the hand-blown glass pitcher “Confetti” designed by Mexican artists Javier and Efren.

Complete your party ensemble with matching margarita glasses, such as the “Confetti Kiss” set. Wow – looks great on your desk!
