Holiday Survival: Stress-Free Entertaining

Stress-Free EntertainingOver the years, I have discovered that being the holiday “hostess with the mostest” is not about having the perfect home, the most delicious meals, and the most inspired holiday decor. The best hosts are the ones who are relaxed, welcoming and seem to be enjoying themselves.

But I also know that putting things off until the last minute and living in a disorganized home stresses me out — especially if I’m entertaining guests for the holidays. To cope, do as much advance prep as possible before the season is in full swing. Here’s a great article from Houzz on keeping the holidays relaxed when entertaining. Plan meals ahead of time, get the decor out early and freeze your cranberry sauce to make hosting more of a joy.
