Whether you typically host large parties, or smaller get-togethers, there are scads of great holiday entertaining tips meant to help you pull off any size event without a hitch. These are just a few of them!
Holiday Entertaining Tips
Set Things Up the Night Before
By doing things such as setting the table the night before and placing extra toilet paper in the bathroom, you’re putting much less stress on yourself the day of the party. Depending on how much you get accomplished, the food and beverages may be the only two things you have to worry about the next day.
Consider an Alternative to Candles
A wonderful alternative to expensive candles are products you probably already have in your kitchen. I’m talking about things like apples, oranges, cinnamon sticks, and cloves. It’s super easy to simmer these ingredients in a crock-pot filled with water. Another option is to toss a handful of cinnamon sticks and pinecones into the fireplace.
