How to Arrange Your House for a Festive Holiday Gathering

The folks at Table & Thyme offer easy entertaining tips to help your holiday party flow smoothly.

You’ve hung the lights, decked the halls and are ready to show off your festive decor to all your friends. When hosting a house party, do you ever run into the problem of everyone congregating in the same room as the food? The guests completely miss the rest of the house!

We have that problem, too, but fortunately, the entertaining experts at Table & Thyme have some easy solutions to help spread your guests out throughout your merrily-adorned home. 

1. Set up different food stations in separate rooms. This cuts down on long lines and congestion and helps guests see the other decorated rooms. For example, have your kitchen island set up as a grazing table for people to nibble on as they mingle with other guests.

2. Use your dining room for small bites or buffet stations showing off your grand table.

3. Set up a side room for desserts to allow guests to pop in and grab a sweet treat.

4. Finally, watch the lights twinkle, sparkle and shine outside, and host cocktail hour on the back patio.

You can set up each room in your home however you please, but these ideas will help get the creative juices flowing as you plan your next soiree.
