The holiday season is upon us once again, which means it’s time for you to start thinking about your annual holiday party. This year, instead of dealing with the hassle of hosting at your own home, make it an event to remember by throwing your holiday party at the most stunning event space in New York City—The Glasshouses. You’ll be able to mingle with your guests instead of working away in the kitchen, and you can still decorate the space to make it exactly what you want. Read on for ideas on holiday party décor.
Though flowers can sometimes bring images of springtime to mind, they are also a beautiful decorating element that can be used in the winter. Once you decide on a color scheme for your holiday party, you can choose flowers to complement your décor. Classic choices for winter include red and white roses, which can be accented with pine cones or deep green pine boughs. Not only will your flower arrangements look great, but the addition of pine will also give off a pleasant, wintry scent that is ideal for a holiday party.
When you hold your holiday party at our New York City event space, you can set the mood to be truly elegant. Consider using candles on every table, or use faux candles on the wall to create a festive and holiday-inspired glow. White candles are always a sophisticated choice, or you can add a touch of color by using rich purple tapers. Candles also make a great party favor so your guests can bring the memory of your event home with them.
There is a good chance that New York City will be blanketed in snow when your holiday party arrives, and you can recreate that beauty in your event space—leaving the chill outside, of course. White tablecloths, black napkins, and a hint of sparkle in your centerpieces all evoke the feeling of winter, making your holiday party even more festive.

Planning a holiday party is no easy task. Between securing the perfect event space, planning a catering menu, and making sure your guests can all make it, a holiday party host’s plate can be quite full. In the weeks leading up to your event, it’s a good idea to have a checklist to keep yourself organized, as there are a number of last-minute tasks that could fall by the wayside if they’re not written down.
Confirm with Vendors
If you’re an experienced party planner, you may have made arrangements with your vendors as far back as a few months ago. The holidays are a busy time of year for caterers, florists, photographers, and event venues, so contact all of your vendors a week or two in advance to make sure everything is still in place. You can go over specific details you may have thought of since you last spoke with them and review the services you’re getting so that everyone knows what to expect on the day of the party.
Remind Your Guests
Social calendars can become quite full during the holiday season, which is why you may wish to remind your guests of your party a few days in advance. You can do this through email, social media, or with reminder cards sent via snail mail. Be sure to include the time and location of your party, and emphasize that you’re looking forward to celebrating with each one of your guests. You may want to include your phone number so that guests can contact you with any questions they may have.
Choose an Outfit
Once you have all of the details of the party itself in place, you can focus on yourself for a moment and plan what you want to wear to your party. Your attire will depend on what kind of event you’re throwing, and it’s best not to stress about your outfit right before you have to leave the house.
You’ll love the personalized service you receive when you hold this year’s holiday party at The Glasshouses. As New York City’s most unique event space, we are dedicated to the complete satisfaction of all of our clients and offer the convenience of 24-hour parking and full catering.

When you are planning a photo shoot, it’s important to have an idea of what your goals are before you arrive on location. Watch this video for helpful tips on conceptualizing and organizing your photo shoot.
Whether you are the photographer or the subject of a photo shoot, you may have a clear picture of what you want the lighting, poses, and camera angles to be. Instead of trying to describe these things verbally, take a moment to write down your concepts and even sketch out a storyboard so there is less room for interpretation. This will make the photo shoot go smoothly and give you the results you’re looking for.
The Glasshouses in Manhattan’s desirable Chelsea neighborhood is the perfect backdrop for your next photo shoot, with unobstructed views of the Hudson River and the NYC skyline. Contact us at (212) 847-3813 to coordinate your photo shoot, and we’ll make sure that your day goes according to plan.
