Tips to Throwing a Safe Holiday Party

The holiday season means it is time to share memorable moments with family and friends. This can be done in many different fashions, entertaining at home being a popular option. Whether you’re planning a small gathering or a large-scale get-together, these tips may help to keep your holiday guests happy and safe:

  • When serving alcohol beverages, offer a variety of foods throughout the night. Enjoying food with alcohol can help slow its absorption into the bloodstream.

  • Remember that some guests may prefer non-alcohol beverages or may be designated drivers. So provide plenty of options like water, soft drinks, etc.

  • Stop serving alcohol at least one hour before the party ends so everyone will be responsible when heading home.

  • If you are concerned about the behavior of several guests due to alcohol, designate a driver, provide cab rides home, or offer for them to stay the night so they can sober up and be safe rather than cause accidents.

November Food Drive

Food Drive For the entire month of November, Consultative Insurance group will be collecting non-perishable food items for families in need in our local communities. If you would like to participate please drop off food at any one of our five office locations.

If you plan on hosting a get together, it is your job to be aware of the risks involved. Although you are supposed to be celebrating with those you love, it is also important to be responsible when consuming alcohol. Avoid accidents and injuries by promoting safety at your holiday event!

Drive Safely This Holiday Season!

Driving while impaired by alcohol may be considered one of the greatest highway safety problems, especially during the holidays. With many parties being thrown this season, most of which will serve alcohol, it is important that you stay alert and safe on the road. You don’t want to put you and your family at risk with drunk drivers out and about.

Planning is key to being a safe driver during the holidays. Try to find a route that is easy to navigate at any time of the day. Also, staying away from highways can be one of the safest ways for you to get home. If you are concerned about the conditions of the road after a large party has been thrown in your neighborhood, opt to stay the night at a friend’s house or leave earlier in the evening to avoid drunk drivers. In addition, if you are the one consuming alcohol, make sure you have a designated driver or alternative transportation so you don’t put anyone else’s life in danger.

The holidays are a time for celebration and joy. With a little preparation and awareness, you can help keep your loved ones safe on the road this season!


Tips to Throw a Great Party on a Budget!

When it comes to saving money during the holidays, you begin to stress about the party you will be hosting. However, there are ways you can cut costs by shopping smart for your decor, food, and beverages:

  • For party invitations, keep costs down by e-mailing the invitations. If you would prefer to do traditional mailed invitations, craft them yourself rather than buying them.

  • Keep the party on budget by picking a theme. Also, you don't have to cover your entire home with decorations. Focus on the entry area, food table, and perhaps the bathroom.

  • Comparison shop for food by looking at coupons from your local grocery stores. Also, stay in season when it comes to the food and drinks you pick. Potluck style can also be an option to help you save money.

Hopefully these tips will help you throw a great holiday party on a budget!
