Disposable party supplies, instant hand sanitizer are absolute musts for holiday parties
Don't forget an endless supply of napkins, paper towels and paper towel dispensers for those spills that accompany every good party.
The holiday season brings holiday parties, which means now is the time to stock up on all those necessary party items, including paper towel dispensers, instant hand sanitizer and disposable party supplies.
When throwing a party, it's best to put together a checklist of all the party supplies that are needed so that they can be bought in bulk ahead of time, thereby saving money. Also, the checklist will help ensure that the host doesn't get within an hour of the party start time only to realize that a crucial party favor is missing.
That's why we've assembled this list of five party essentials that should be on every shopping list.
Paper or plastic: Good holiday parties start with the basics and that means plenty of paper plates, plastic cups, plastic utensils and other disposable party supplies. These items are the life's blood of any party. Run out of cups, and people are drinking out of whatever they can find. Why risk running out of plates when sites like ReStockIt.com are offering a carton of 1,000 Dixie white paper plates for less than $20? Run out of paper towels and, well, let's not even think about that mess....
Dispensing units: Rather than leave the plastic utensils or other disposable party supplies in a box or simply tossing them on the counter, why not pick up an inexpensive silverware tray? It will add a touch of class to the party. The same goes for paper towel dispensers. Sometimes rolls of paper towels do the work of napkins. They are handy to clean-up those accidental spills, but it's nicer to have them available in handy paper towel dispensers. If the party is being held in an office, pick up some Kimberly-Clark touchless roll paper towel dispensers and use them all year round.
Instant hand sanitizers: Don't forget that this time of year is also the holiday flu season. Stop the spread of germs by having plenty of bottles of instant hand sanitizer, such as Purell 12-ounce hand sanitizer with aloe, on hand. Even if you're not throwing the party, now is a good time stock up on enough instant hand sanitizer to last throughout the flu season.
Party decorations: Make sure guests feel the theme by hanging snowmen, mistletoe and Santas around the room. And don't forget to have plenty of holiday music on hand to keep the gathering festive. Buy them where you find other disposable party supplies.
Extra chairs: People hate it when they realize an hour into a party that there is no where to sit and talk. Ask a friend or neighbor to bring some extra chairs, or pick up some inexpensive folding chairs either online or from a local discount store. Arrange them in groups to foster conversation.
So enjoy the holiday party season by stocking up early on all the necessary holiday disposable party supplies and stay healthy the rest of the year with bottles of instant hand sanitizer. Picking up a good supply of these items early will make it easier to enjoy one of the best times of the year.
