Guests are a given during the busy holiday season. Whether they are dropping in for a get-together or staying a while to share the joy, you want to make sure you are prepared.
I’ve put together a list of tips to make sure you’re ready when your guests show up!
5 Tips for Holiday Entertaining
1. Keep it simple (but delicious)
Don’t stress yourself out by trying to impress your guests with complicated recipes. Stick with the classics that you know how to make. Want to know how much food to serve at a party? Get my free printable here.
2. Have a lighter option
Some guests may be trying to watch what they eat. Try to include at least one lighter option in your menu.
3. Set a gathering place
Place a beverage station where you want your guests to gather. I always put my cocktail bar near my living room. This encourages guests to gravitate in that direction.
4. Mix and mingle
Don’t get stuck mixing cocktails all evening. Keep the drinks simple by preparing a few batches of a signature cocktail ahead of time. This way you won’t have to spend your time being a mixologist.
5. Set the bar…
…the coffee bar, that is. I like to set up a coffee bar when I entertain. I set up a station in a central location so guests can easily make their own coffee drinks.
