A beautiful layout – Presentation means a lot to guests, if it doesn’t look well put together, you may be eating it for the next 2 weeks! Coordinate your dishes by using matching serving platters, utensils, and chafers. Add a special touch by adding dish nameplates so your guests can get their tastebuds ready simply by reading! Get creative and give the dishes a fun family name like ‘Stacey’s Slamming Stuffing’.
Let the kids serve you...
Put the kids to work – whether 7 our 17, give the kids a platter of appetizers to serve to your guests. Your family will really appreciate you providing something to nibble on while waiting or mingling. Just remember…don’t give the kids anything with sauces!
Entertain the children – Give parents the full experience to enjoy themselves in your home. Keep the kids busy with crafts, games, and activities! Every other hour roll out a new activity that they can do without adult supervision. Join us later this week on more ideas for the kids.
And last but not least…DECORATIONS! – Embrace autumns fun, warm colors! Oranges, browns, and reds throughout your home is just what you need to spread the holiday spirit. Save time and decorate only the high traffic areas; living room, kitchen, dining room, and bathroom.
