When I think “HOLIDAY,” I think of parties. I think of my big family gathered around the dining room table, standing in the kitchen, lounging on the couch; I think of everyone laughing, smiling, sharing memories of previous holidays – isn’t that what the holidays are all about? Families gathering together. It’s one of those times of years when everyone pulls out all of the stops when it comes to entertaining. We bake, we decorate, we look up new and exciting recipes…and sometimes we find ourselves so overwhelmed that we end up frazzled and once the holiday party is over, we sit down and can’t even remember what happened! The holidays don’t have to be stressful, there are so many ways to entertain without the fuss! This year will be my first holiday season since my divorce began and to be honest, I am dreading the thought of “doing it all” on my own. I am SO THANKFUL for the help of the NABISCO Party Planner!

4 Tips for Easy Holiday Party Planning
Head to the NABISCO Party Planner for Great Recipe Ideas. I suggest having three or four finger foods, like this Baked Brie Recipe, and perhaps the Cheesy Ritz Potato Balls, the Ham and Gouda Triscuit Topper and the Roasted Turkey and Sweet Potato Ritzwich. Then add in a few dessert options, such as the Pecan-Apple Ritzwich, Toffee Apple Cheesecake Bars, NILLA, PB and Mallow Squares. Serve up a fun punch and you’re good to go!
Set a Festive Holiday Table. Your holiday table doesn’t have to be an all-out extravagant affair. Use a pretty tablecloth, and skip the paper products and lay out your pretty china (if you have it). Likewise with the serving wear and glass wear – real plates, silver wear and glasses are an easy way to fancy up your holiday party. It might seem like a pain because they need washing, but think of it this way: you might need to load the dishwasher after the party, but you’re saving valuable space in your city’s landfills!
Buy Fresh Flowers For Your Holiday Table. Nothing says HOLIDAY PARTY like fresh flowers or a pretty fall-themed centerpiece. You can usually find a seasonally-themed bouquet at your grocery store for just a few dollars. Pops or orange, brown and red automatically make a room seem more festive, and you’ll have the bonus of enjoying them even after the party is over!
Light Seasonally-Scented Candles. They make candles in almost any scent these days, and the fall scents are some of the prettiest-smelling, don’t you think? Your holiday party guests will automatically get in the mood when they walk in the door and breathe in the scents of the season!
If you follow these tips and use recipes from the NABISCO Party Planner, you’ll have a great Thanksgiving gathering with less hassle!
