‘Tis the season for a party! The time between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day is typically packed with family gatherings, office celebrations, end-of-school parties, neighborhood get-togethers, White Elephant gift exchanges and more. The following #musthaveapps can help you put together a perfect holiday celebration.

First, an invitation sets the tone of your soiree. Choose from designs for every occasion using the Evite app for paperless invitations. The app also lets users manage the guest list and RSVPs; all while on-the-go. To customize your invitation with a picture, use the Postagram Postcards app to create and mail postcard invitations using images from your digital photo gallery.

Next, download a party-planning app like My Party Planner to keep track of “To Do” lists, menus, shopping lists and more. The Goodbudget app helps track expenses to easily manage the budget for the party. 

Find inspiration for decorations and party favors with apps like Pinterest and DIY Party Decorations Ideas.

Finally, fill the party with the sounds of the holiday by pairing a music concierge service like Songza with a wireless speaker like the Bose SoundLink Bluetooth Speaker III. And don’t forget to create a special, personalized #hashtag for your guests to post their favorite party pics on Instagram.

With the help of digital planning tools, your guests are sure to have a wonderful time at your party!
