Almost there…ready to Celebrate!

It’s the last day of classes, my last Fall semester at PennState, and the last time I’ll host a “Classy Christmas Party” with my roommates. One class and three finals to go before flying back West for a Break!

Tonight we are having our “Second Annual Classy Christmas Party”, for the second and last time.  Last year, it was our first experience “hosting” a party in our apartment. Needless to say, many lessons were learned!  Some things we wish we would have known before last year’s extravaganza:

-Unless you anticipate 100+ very drunk people, do NOT buy a Keg. It is completely unnecessary. A few cases of Lion’s Head? YES, that will work.

-People appreciate it when snacks are provided…however, the Floor does not.

-If you have a small kitchen, put the drinks somewhere where they are more accessible. That way, you don’t have sticky floors and crowded people.

-Remember to buy Mistletoe from Wal-mart early! And by “early”, I mean before the party. Drawing it on a piece of paper and hanging it above a doorway doesn’t have quite the same effect….

-If you play “Catchphrase” (great game, by the way!), be prepared. Drunk people cheat!
( Larisa: “Puerto Rico!” Mike: “Yup!” ehhhhh??)

-Putting bus times on the wall does not mean people will remember that they have to take the bus to get home. If somebody misses the last bus, call a Taxi for them before 2:30 a.m.

That sums up the important things. 🙂 Don’t get me wrong, the party was a success! People were dressed up, Christmas music was playing, it was Classy.

I can’t wait for tonight!
