Well it is YOUR year to host the family, friends, etc. for the holidays. What do you do? No; don’t start
drinking…Yet. First take care of some business and there will be plenty of time for the drinking
(non-alcoholic of course) part once the guests arriveJ.
Break out the Decorations. Do as little or as much as you want but having something that reminds
you and your guests why you are gathering will set the tone for the occasion.
Get Ready by Taking Inventory. Look at how much dinnerware you have, table space, chairs, etc
to accommodate your invitees. Knowing well ahead of time will allow you to borrow or purchase what is lacking.
Plan Ahead. Have the menu items, time and eating arrangements set.
The holidays are known for chaos so whatever you can do to avoid this will make your guests
and your own life A LOT easier.
Shop Early. Everyone is going to be looking for the same items such as turkeys, ham and such so shop
early for what you can freeze or store to avoid it being sold out when you go to get it last minute.
Make it Fun. Remember you are there to CELEBRATE and not exasperate!
So what if you forget to set out the cranberry sauce, it makes for good memories to talk
about next year!
