Holiday Hosting Like A Boss




We always talk about throwing get togethers, but it seems the only ones I get around to are more impromptu ones a few days out. So if you decided to throw a last minute get together this holiday season, there's no need to worry just follow these three simple steps.

1. Make it festive. A little holiday music puts everyone in the mood to party (I'm partial to the Rat Pack but any of the old standards will do). Add a bit of greenery, some sparkle, and of course mistletoe and you're in business.

2. Pick your poison. Don't over think the booze. People are perfectly happy with beer and wine. Two reds, and two whites will please almost everyone. If you feel like getting fancy, opt for bubbles or look up a great bourbon punch recipe to serve to the bunch... one and done is very last minute friendly!

3. Provide crowd pleasers. Make your snacks universally appealing. Think cheese straws (a standard in the south), a well constructed cheese plate, and some holiday treats like peppermint bark or truffles.

Hopefully you're a little more inspired to host your own Christmas party this year, and have the tips and tricks to be one helluva hostess (take all the credit, they'll never know!).
