A few ways to avoid stress while entertaining over the holidays
We all know it can be super stressful entertaining guests over the holidays. And if you’re having one of those huge last minute get togethers the whole process can just get way over amplified. Here’s a few tips to keep that stress level down and take care of yourself and your guests like a pro.
Lists, lists, lists! Create a to-do list of everything you need to get done before your party.
Save the date! Determine your guest list ASAP and send email invites so friends can RSVP.
Limit spendings! Set a budget for your party so you can focus on the fun stuff like food or a theme.
Go with the flow! Ditch the formality and opt for the open house style where guests can come and go as they please.
Bring on the snacks! Stick with snacks for easier prep and cleanup than a full dinner. Get creative!
Set up a self-service drink station that has both boozy and virgin options.
Get your ZZZs! Plan a nap to unwind before the party so you’re relaxed, which makes your guests relaxed too.
Learn to love the cleanup! Have a quick, hassle-free cleanup with disposable plates and utensils.
