You’ve had your turkey and the family festivities are starting to slow down. This is a great time to arrange a get together with your friends! The holidays can sometimes get expensive, especially if you are hosting family dinners and parties; don’t let that deter you from spending time with friends.
Host and Save Money
With a little organization and some advanced decision making (menu), a friend’s get together can be affordable for all and create amazing memories!
Saving Scenario 1: Catered
If the host collects money in advance to have the party catered, or pizza ordered, you can avoid the awkwardness of asking everyone for cash, fronting money for some friends and forgetting to collect it all. By creating an Eventastic Event you have access to create tickets that you can used to collect money. E.g. $10 per person. As the host, you can cash out the money and use it the day of the event to buy dinner.
Tip: Add a ticket item for alcoholic beverages and provide a few options for booze and mix. An extra $10 can go a long way when split with friends.
Saving Scenario 2: Pot Luck
Decide on what you would like to have; the Eventastic event page makes it easy for you to communicate details about the event. The ability to have conversations on the event page make it easy for all attendees to say what they would like to bring and to see what others are bringing. What makes this option great is that by RSVPing, the host can always see how many people to expect so everyone can make the appropriate amount of food!
Saving Scenario 3: Combo of 1 & 2
Do a bit of both and still save! Arrange for guests to bring apps and dessert and just get dinner! Use a combination on dinner tickets and comments to work out the details, source the cash and throw together an awesome party for your friends!
Organizing a party with shared costs makes a holiday get together affordable for everyone. Create your holiday event today!
Friends are chosen family
Friends are family too, don’t forget to make time for them over the holidays. It’s really simple to arrange a get together and to invite your friends via Facebook, Twitter, email, etc.
