The Ultimate Trello Holiday Planning Round-Up

It happens every year. You’re driving to the store, reflecting on the fun Halloween party you went to last night. Wow, that Stranger Things demogorgon was out of this world, you chuckle to yourself.

Then suddenly you see something that stops you in your tracks. You immediately stop laughing as you slam on the brakes. Eyes wide, you blink to make sure you’re not dreaming. There it is: a neighbor’s house decked out in Christmas decorations... on the day after Halloween.

Yes, it’s that time. Already. Luckily Trello is here to help.

Maybe you volunteered to host family at your house, or you were elected to plan the holiday office party. Whatever your situation, you have Trello to organize and plan it all without a hitch. Here’s a round-up of posts that will help you triumph this holiday season:

Plan The Perfect Office Holiday Party

A Trello Board To Plan The Office Holiday Party

If you’re the one that plays holiday music right when Thanksgiving is over (or even before), then you most likely were elected to the “Fun Committee” at work to plan the Office Holiday Party. There’s no doubt it’s a festive time, but as lead of the party planning, you’re going to field a lot of questions. What’s the price limit for Secret Santa?
