7 Tips for Entertaining with Ease This Holiday Season!

The best part of the holidays is spending time with family and friends, making amazing memories.  Each year we have a family Christmas party on my mom’s side of the family, A friends Christmas get together, and another big party with my Dad’s side of the family on Christmas Eve.  We all take turns hosting these parties, so I know how easy it can be to get bogged down with the cooking and cleaning so that by the end of the night you realize you didn’t get to truly connect with anyone. 
That is such a crummy feeling to have, especially during the holidays.  So, I have a round up of 7 great items that will have your family thinking you’re a hosting superstar with ease so that you can find time to enjoy the festivities yourself!

Simplify the Hors D’oeuvres but keep them delicious with Castello Cheese.  These gourmet cheeses make creating the ultimate cheese board easy and tasty.  I tried the Aged Havarti, Gouda, and Traditional Danish Blue Cheese and every bite was delicious!  A cheese board is a perfect appetizer that can be made up in minutes.  Plus, if you don’t know what to pair together on your board, Castello has an online Custom Cheese Board Builder, that asks you several questions then creates a list of the best variety for your taste.

Keep your appetizers looking festive and stylish with Snowflake Hors D’oeuvres Picks from Cracker Barrel.
I am very impressed by the quality of these holiday picks, the kick the look of your tablescape up a notch, and they would also make perfect holiday gifts if you’re not the one hosting this year!
Use Code: SHOP30 to receive 30% off storewide.

Reduce fat and calories while also making sure the dishes will be easy to wash while cooking your holiday dinner, by using PAM Cooking Spray.  These non-aerosol cooking sprays have no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, and give you a superior non-stick cooking surface.  I love how these bottles make it easy to control how much I’m using, and not having to soak and scrub my pans after dinner is a huge win!

Have something special on hand for the little guests, like these adorable Reindeer and Santa Glass Milk Bottles from Cracker Barrel.  These Christmas milk bottles will definitely bring lots of little smiles to your dinner table, and after dinner, they would make an adorable Christmas decoration too.
Use Code: SHOP30 to receive 30% off storewide.

Keep the four-legged guests happy too with Wellness CORE Natural Pet Food.  This 100% grain free dog food contains dried raw bites of 100% meat with no fillers.  The recipe is high in protein for lean body mass and muscle tone but best of all, it must be yummy because our Brady ate up his whole bowl before I had time to put the bag away.

After the pups have a nutritious meal of their own treat them to a WHIMZEES Daily Dental Chew.  These great treats contain all-natural ingredients, freshen your dog’s breath, promote gum health, and clean their teeth.  Plus, they look adorable, and the kids love that Brady is brushing his teeth with us now!

And of course, it wouldn’t be a perfect holiday party without some beautiful decorations.  Luckily Christmas Central has everything you could possibly need to make your home into a magical Christmas setting.  From lights and trees to table linens and candle holders, Christmas Central is your one-stop shop for holiday decor and you don’t even have to leave your house.


I am in love with their Snowy Pine Flocked Tree and Trim, it is stunning!  I can imagine curling up on the couch with some hot cocoa and just watching the lights twinkle.

Are you hosting over the holidays?  I hope these products help make your festivities exciting and let you host with ease.
