When friends and loved ones are home for the holidays, it’s the perfect time for a celebration. So, get into the holiday spirit and give your friends and family the gift of a memorable holiday party. Booking fun and festive entertainment is the first step in hosting a truly special holiday celebration. Lucky for you, all of the little elves here at GigMasters are working hard year round to help you with all of your party planning needs. The more time we spend worrying about planning the perfect holiday party, the less you have to - (leaving you more time to bake that homemade pie or shop for the perfect gifts!) Let us share with you the fruits of our labor:

Don't be a Scrooge Plan a holiday party for the kids. Santa Clauses, magicians, and balloon twisters are sure to put smiles on their little faces. And, when it comes to "do's and don'ts," our kids party tips can help you answer all of those pesky party questions.

Spread Holiday Cheer What's better than a holiday sing-along? Maybe that's why pianists are such a popular choice for family holiday parties. For larger groups, DJs and bands are perfect, appealing to the musical tastes of all generations. If you are looking to really spread holiday cheer, Christmas carolers can help you get the whole neighborhood involved!

Eggnog Etiquette If you are planning a holiday party for the adults, serving some delicious eggnog cocktails is a great way to warm up in the cold weather.  But, as the party host you will also want to also keep guests safe – so we recommend hiring a professional bartender to make sure people don’t get too “jolly” and spoil the fun. - Most importantly, take time to enjoy the holiday moments with those around you. Like the song says - it's the most wonderful time of the year!
