Hi, guys!!! December sure is a fun month. There are so many holiday parties and get-togethers to be had. All of these holiday celebrations can be so much fun, but they can also be really stressful, especially if you’re the one doing the hosting. Let’s talk about how to stay sane and still throw a blast of a party.

Ingredients

  • You’re going to have plenty to worry about and complicated foods can definitely take over. Take my advice and keep your menu simple with quick easy-to-make foods. Consider only serving heavy hors d’oeuvres; like finger sandwiches, premade dips with crackers and veggies, crostini topped with pesto, meats and/or cheeses. There are tons of ideas on Pinterest and other various websites. Check out my party Pinterest board here for more ideas! If you’re serving a full meal; slow-cooker options like chili, meatballs or lasagna work great. Taco, soup or baked potato bars are also fun and pretty effortless.
  • Create a fun party atmosphere with lighting, music and decorations. This is super easy to do during the holidays! Light dimmers are fairly simple to install. You can also use candles, real and fake, to create a festive ambience. Use seasonal candles for a festive smell too! The music is a no-brainer around the holidays…. however, I know some people can get a little tired of constant Christmas music {silly people}. Consider creating a playlist of various holiday songs mixed in with other favorites, new and old. Again, the decorations are a no-brainer during this time of year. You probably won’t need to do any extra decorating in addition to your holiday décor….. major plus!
