5 tips for #HolidayHosting

    1. Charcuterie Centerpiece

    Forego the traditional holiday tablescape and delight your family and friends with a sociable charcuterie sharing board laden with dry cured meats, cheeses, pickles, fruits, artisan bread or crackers, and spreads.

    2. Holiday Sangria

    For guests that prefer a beverage that’s a little lighter than Egg Nog, make a batch of holiday sangria featuring cranberries, pomegranates and cinnamon.

    3. Jingle Playlist

    Make a holiday music playlist filled with yuletide classics and modern favourites to play subtly throughout your party. That’s one less thing to worry about, and we bet that by the end of the night you and your guests will sing along with a spirited rendition of Baby it’s Cold Outside

    4. Mad Men backyard barbecue (60s theme)

    Keep the kids amused by setting up a hot chocolate bar with an assortment of traditional and holiday toppings like marshmallows, crushed candy canes, mint chocolate chips, whipped cream, caramel, and more!

    5. Buffet All The Way

    Buffets work best for large parties and are often more engaging for your guests. Be creative with the set-up and presentation, but make sure the flow of the table works well to avoid any traffic jams.
