Am I the only one, or does everyone have that certain family member that tries to out-do the other? Every family event I go to, it seems that my cousin Susan is judging every tiny detail. Between the decorations to the food to the beer available, she always seems to have a snarky comment about it, as if nothing is good enough.
So sure enough, Susan will try to out-do everyone by having some over exaggerated version of the previous party. Whether it was more decorations, expensive catered food or special entertainment like a party clown or live band, nothing is too much. We all roll our eyes and go with it, but in the end, does all this whoopla really make a difference?
No, didn’t think so.
What really matters is the small details, the little things you don’t think people notice. But in all actuality, they do. It’s not about how many decorations you have, but whether or not they compliment each other. Stick with a specific color scheme and overall general theme so everything blends beautifully. If you choose to do a potluck or cook everything yourself, serving personalized food made by hand will make the event even more special. And nothing like distracting entertainment can replace good old-fashioned face-to-face chats with your loved ones. For an extra special touch, toss a few dozen personalized napkins on the serving table, in the bathroom and other high traffic areas. Personalized with the name and date of your choice, they’re sure to be a memorable part of your event.
I bet cousin Susan didn’t think of customized napkins ever, now did she?
