With the holiday season coming at us fast, it can feel like there's no time to plan anything, least of all a party. You have to put together a menu, figure out a guest list, shop new tableware, and eventually, you’ll need to clean and cook. ‘Tis the season to be jolly? More like, ''Tis the season to commit to throwing a holiday party, only to get very overwhelmed, very fast!'

Luckily, JCPenney can help…with basically everything. In a single shopping trip or online order, you can refresh your table to give it a holiday flair, snag an outfit to impress your guests, and even purchase activities and entertainment to ensure you throw the best bash of the season.

And bonus: it may just be the one party that your guests are still talking about come summer.
