Holiday Hostess Tips
Whether hosting a party or entertaining unexpected guests, here are some tips to make your holiday season less stressful and more joyful.
Being prepared can take the stress out of the holidays.
- Make a batch of cookies such as Delectabites. Prepare the dough, then place the raw dough balls onto a cookie sheet. Freeze and then remove from the cookie sheet and place in an airtight freezer container. Bake them as you need them to have fresh warm cookies on hand. Cookies with no baking powder or baking soda work best in the freezer.
- Keep nuts and other snacks on hand to pull out as snacks when unexpected guests arrive.
- Keep a few extra bottles of mixers, wine and soft drinks in your refrigerator – keep them toward the back so they aren’t as easy to spot and you’ll have a better chance of them being there when you need them.
