#TipThursdayOnMCZ ¦ Seven tips to host your Christmas party in a pandemic / post-covid.

The corona virus brought about the new normal which calls for special attention being paid to personal hygiene etc. On Tip Thursday and the Feature article this week we look at seven ways to host a Christmas party in a pandemic or post-covid.

Obviously, the effects of covid will dwindle activities during Christmas but — we are all social beings and we will like to socialize (i.e party) with family and friends. But, we still need to stay safe even as we party and as we go about having a successful party in a post-covid era. We need to observe the following:

HYGIENE

This is a crucial part of this season and must be a priority to everyone hosting and the guests on the other hand.

Personal: Make sure your guest wash their hands, make sanitizers available and check their temperature with thermometers.

LESS NUMBER OF GUEST

Social distancing rule still applies when hosting this Christmas — ensure you invite less friends/family and still observe the rule.

KNOW YOUR GUEST

In terms of their preference try to understand them before you host. You wouldn’t want to cook meat for a vegetarian guest or seafood for someone who’s allergic to seafood.

COOK IN MODERATION

Food wastage for me will always be a no-no anyday and time. Know the number of guests attending and cook the required quantity.

MAKE VARIETIES

This tip is quite similar to knowing your guest. In terms of varieties, on your menu give your guests options to pick from which also applies to drinks.

USE COOL COLOURS

For decoration you can opt for the Christmas colour red, green and white. Personally, I love simplicity so make your decoration cool and well coordinated.

PUT A MASK ON

This can’t be overemphasized it is important as the host, make it a (no mask, no entry) party.
