One of the most exciting things about the holiday season is the array of parties that come along with it. It's a time to celebrate with friends and family, and if you find yourself hosting a holiday party, you know it's no small task. However, the role of a party host can vary depending on your style and preferences. After attending countless parties and conducting diligent research, we've identified three distinct types of party hosts. So, which one are you?

The Food Centric Host

For this type of host, the food takes center stage. They spend hours searching for highly-rated caterers or scouring cookbooks for recipes that will wow their guests. With enough food to feed twice the size of their party, these hosts live by the motto "the more food the better!" They are the foodies of their friend group, and no one is surprised when they leave this party feeling as stuffed as they do on Thanksgiving Day.

More Booze, The Better Host

This type of host focuses on providing their guests with top-quality drinks. They go above and beyond to curate the perfect selection of spirits, often visiting multiple liquor stores to find the finest options. They may even create their own signature cocktail with a clever holiday-themed name. Researching and ordering local spirits is a must for this host, ensuring that their out-of-town friends and family get a true taste of their home state. While they do consider food, their party menu revolves around the drinks they serve.

The Pinterest Board Host

For this type of host, creating a picturesque holiday setting is the ultimate joy. They spend hours on Pinterest, creating mood boards and seeking inspiration. Instead of heading to Party City, they prefer to find unique and rare party decor at local antique stores and vintage markets. Aesthetics and Instagram-worthy moments are their main focus. Of course, they also ensure there is delicious food and fantastic spirits, but their ultimate goal is to provide their guests with great photo opportunities.

There is no right or wrong party style. The most important aspect of any party is the people, and if you infuse your personality into it, you're guaranteed to be a success. At atōst, we believe that parties are about celebrating with the ones you love the most. So, cheers to creating memorable holiday gatherings, no matter which type of host you are!
