  • Provide food and non-alcoholic beverage options

Food and non-alcoholic beverages won’t make anyone feel left out.

  • Have a bartender on hand

A bartender keeps an eye on alcohol intake and switches to non-alcoholic when needed.

  • Be aware of any food allergies that may be present

Knowing beforehand will prevent people from getting sick.

  • Have a shoes-on policy in place

A shoes-on policy will help feet from getting injured on the floor.

  • Watch for spills on slippery floors

This will avoid slip and falls.

  • Keep holiday lighting and fires safe

It’s easy for something to catch fire when overloaded. Make sure you have this under control.

  • Don't be a jerk during the "White Elephant" gift exchange

Always keep it positive, even when gifts are awkward.

  • Have numbers of local taxi companies handy

For those people who have had just too much to drink.

  • Have your pool fence up

This promotes pool safety, and prevents falling in.

  • Invite guests to sleep at your home

Your guests may not be able to drive. Offer them a sofa or spare bedroom.
