Tips For The Week…Hosting Tips, Cyber Monday, and Holiday Décor!

Alison’s Tip

Are you cooking for the holidays?  Hosting can be a lot of work and stressful, especially if you are having a large crowd.  Here are my top picks for keeping the stress level down and hosting the perfect party for a large crowd.  For more tips refer back to my BLOG POST.  Happy hosting everyone:)

  • Set the table the night before so that there is one less thing for you to do the day of the party
  • Write out a plan with times to prepare and cook your dishes
  • Choose dishes that you can make the night before and just throw in the the oven the day of
  • If you have one oven and are cooking your turkey all day, chose appetizers and side dishes that do not need the oven
  • Don’t be shy!  Ask guests to bring some dishes like the salad or deserts

Katie’s Tip

If you are anything like my family, you have already started to get out the Christmas decorations and ready to get your Christmas tree. When decorating your tree make sure to put the larger ornaments towards the center of the tree and the smaller ones at the end of the branches! I love this guide to the perfect amount of ornaments for each size of christmas tree but when in doubt  more is always more when it comes to decorating for the holidays!! See you Wednesday.
