What are some ways to create a cost effective holiday party menu?
Plated meals are often more cost effective than buffets, and they present much more elegantly than having everyone stand in line and serve themselves. Of course, your menu will need to reinforce the theme of your event, and try to choose items that incorporate your event colors or brand. Other tips and ideas include:
Create a three-course meal menu.
Choose seasonal and locally produced items.
Limit alcohol consumption (more on this below).
Avoid renting holiday decor linens and other items.
Host at a venue that has standard holiday decorations.
Select modest items or fresh fruit for centerpieces.

AOTD: one year, my younger sister got a Hannah Montana wig for Christmas and my dad put it on and did a little performance! We were all laughing so hard, we couldn't breathe!!!
