Tis the season to go to holiday parties and events! If you're like me, you have too many parties and not enough time. Here are a few of my holiday party survival must-haves to help you get through the rest of 2013!

Go-To-Party Recipe  – figure out what is the easiest, most appetizing dish you make and plan to make it for every potluck, bring a dish, random office gathering you’re invited to this holiday season! Keep is simple and easy on the wallet. I pick a different recipe every year so I can master a new dish by the end of the holiday season. 

Mix & Match Party Outfits – multiple parties and only one favorite party dress! Not a problem! Change up your party look with cardigans, scarves, stockings, and everyone’s favorite accessory -- shoes!  Go from work to glam with a few  mix and match fashion staples!!!

A Partner in Crime – phone a friend, force your fiancée, or call it family quality time but having a party partner in crime is a must! Bring somebody that will have a good time and schmooze just as well as you!

Stock up on Host(ess) gifts – a bottle of wine goes a long way!  It is always a good idea to keep a few hostess gifts handy for the holiday parties that creep up out of nowhere! I try to keep candles, extra holiday ornaments, and festive soaps stocked and ready to go.

Extra Christmas Cards – you never know who you might forget or where you might have to go! Keep a few extra greeting cards on hand for the holidays. I use my left over cards from the previous year to accompany any wine bottles (hostess gifts) we take to last minute holiday parties.

A Plan –juggling multiple parties means knowing your limits (for alcohol and time). It also means planning arrival times, transportation, and most importantly an exit strategy.
