Holiday Entertaining Tip 1: Keep the number of invitations you send out to a minimum.
You want to limit the number of guests at your holiday party to keep things intimate. But you also want to do it to make sure that people have enough room to maneuver around your place. So don’t feel obligated to invite that random guy from the gym, your girlfriend’s best friend’s neighbor, or the mechanic who changes your oil. Keep the guest list small and limit it to the people who you know will bring good conversation to the party.
