I love to host a good party and have definitely missed it over the last few years. However a big contributing factor to added stress during the holiday season is party planning. It can get a little overwhelming, especially if we already have a full schedule. But have no fear… if you want to get back into hosting your holiday party this year, consider asking for some help & delegating! Here are some tips for delegating party planning tasks.
PLUS I have included my strategies for Surviving The Holidays and top 100 Healthy Holiday Recipes so you can stay on track with your health this holiday season.
Decide What Party Planning Tasks You Can Delegate
First of all, you can start by making a to-do list that covers everything you need to do, buy, or plan for the holiday party. This lets you see right away what tasks need to be done and which ones you can delegate to others. In order have it be helpful that others are lending a hand instead, just delegate the simple tasks that are more or less busy work. For example, you can design the invitations yourself, but mailing them out is usually something someone else can do. Perhaps your partner is able to help with writing down messages from the caterer and other people. Or your sister will be the one taking your shopping list and picking up the supplies you need.
Leave the More Complicated Tasks For Yourself
This list will also help you decide what you should do yourself. If you try to give a more complicated task to someone else, and they get it wrong, this might add to your stress as you try to fix it. This isn’t going to help with your holiday stress. For example, if you need help with preparing a holiday meal for the party, then you can do the main cooking, like the Turkey for example. Now others can help you with simpler things like chopping vegetables or buying some last-minute items you didn’t get.
Make Detailed Lists For People You Are Delegating To
Finally, it can reduce your stress level if you know the people you are delegating tasks to are doing it right. Give them all they information they need with detailed lists of the things they need to get done. Make sure you check in with them so that if they run out of time or get confused, you can handle it before it turns into a big stressful situation. Start slow by just handing out one or two small tasks to people you trust to get them done. If someone seems to have a little more free time and is happy to help, maybe you can give them a few more things to do.
