Last Minute Holiday Entertaining Tips

When it comes to holiday entertaining, especially last minute holiday entertaining, I'm all about the easier the better. As a hostess, I'm usually worried about getting the food and ambiance ready, so thinking ahead about how to simplify the party on the front end is super helpful. Whether it's setting-up a self-serve station or prepping a table that's easy breezy to clean, keep your holidays stress-free with these entertaining tips:

1. Wrap gifts in a cinch: If you're entertaining, place a few well-wrapped gifts under your tree for extra magic. Lilywrap is by far your best choice for making wrapping a breeze, and there's sure to be a pretty pattern (or three) that match your decor! 

2. Set-up a self-serving station: A hot chocolate bar is always a hit for kids of all ages. Add some creamy liquors for adults to make boozy beverages and add holiday treats, too. Because the bar is completely self-serving, it will take care of itself for the whole party. 

3. Remember: "purchased" is not a dirty word: If you can't (or don't want to) make/bake everything yourself, that's okay. Purchase appetizers or desserts to help make entertaining more enjoyable for the hostess (that's you!). The easiest food item to purchase? The perfect cheese plate

4. Use wrapping-paper or butcher paper for easy clean-up: Wrapping paper makes a fantastic table runner. It's colorful, a perfect width, and makes for easy set-up and clean-up. Target has some stunning options this year, and I'm always a fan of butcher paper, too, especially for kids. Lay out some crayons and encourage them to draw a winter wonderland.
