It is just around the corner and I want to make all of you the stress-free host or hostess. These are things I do in my home this time of year and I know they work very well.
Lets start with the table. You will probably need extra chairs. Use what you have around the house and tie them together with decoration. Festive ribbons and fabrics can be tied to the back of the chairs. Small grapevine wreaths also work well. Just like that you will have a coordinated table look.
Keep the table clears for your guests and their plates by using a sideboard or countertop to set your dishes and platters on. Let them serve themselves buffet style.
More holiday tidbits to follow later!
