Have Fun and Stay Safe with Socially Distanced Holiday Hosting

This year has been like no other, but that doesn't mean you can't make the holidays as festive as ever. Social distancing presents a whole new set of challenges when it comes to hosting a holiday party. Whether you're planning a workplace celebration or family dinner in Kenilworth, NJ, you’ll need to consider some different options to help you manage the holidays.

Host a Holiday Party Virtually

Out-of-town relatives may be unwilling to risk the trip this year, so consider virtual events to make the season bright. Family games, long conversations, and even holiday dinners can still take place virtually. Or host a virtual tour of your home so friends and family can see your holiday decorations. Get your home camera-ready by enlisting the whole family for a thorough cleaning. Space solutions like self storage units can make easy work of clearing clutter quickly while keeping your belongings protected.

Social Distancing the Fun Way

Want to do something fun and unexpected this holiday season? Host a scavenger hunt! Everyone will be in different locations, so there’s little risk of getting too close. This option is great for family gatherings and office parties alike. Want to gather the neighbors for a holiday party with social distancing? Host a brief outdoor gathering around a fire. Serve hot chocolate and other goodies to keep them warm. Keeping the fun outside while ensuring there’s plenty of room to spread out is key.

Modify Your Party Plans

If you will be hosting any festivities indoors, keep the guest list very short, using your state’s guidelines for safe social distancing. Offer masks at the door for anyone who wants or needs one, and place hand sanitizer within easy reach throughout your home. Agreeing to a shorter party than usual can help people stay more mindful of personal space and safety concerns. If you’re hosting a holiday dinner, space seating accordingly; use extra tables if necessary. You can always take advantage of a storage unit for keeping any furniture or other items that may be in the way of guests spreading out.

Whatever your unique situation, there are still ways to make the season cheery and bright with the proper planning for holiday hosting.
