Our Top Hosting Tips and Tricks for a Successful Holiday Party
If you are like me, you have waited 365 days for this time of year! I love the holiday season because it’s the time of year for all my friends and family to come together. Our work and personal lives become too hectic, but the holiday season is the perfect excuse to forget about everything else and spend time with our loved ones.
I don’t know about you, but I am all about hosting a good holiday party. Now, as exciting as these get-togethers can be, I will be the first to tell you it can become overwhelming and exhausting. But, it’s so worth it, so I will continue to host! Here are some tips and tricks I follow for a successful holiday party.
Save Where you Can
Perhaps all the stress that comes with the holiday season is due to the expense. You spend so much money on presents for your friends and family, the décor, and the food! My advice is: save where you can. Now your family members probably have presents in mind that they want, and there is a very slim chance you can change the price of these gifts. Where you CAN save though, is in the kitchen.
Spicy Chicks Gourmet has all the dips and seasonings you need to satisfy your guests’ taste buds. And the best part? Everything is so simple to make! These mixes are inexpensive so won’t harm your wallet, but your guests will think you spent tons of money on the incredible food you have at your party. Because you saved money on food at your gathering, you’ll be able to binge on gifts for your loved ones!
Cook Everything Yourself (If you Can)
Have you ever been to a potluck gathering where people brought all kinds of food? Almost every time, someone brings a fruit or vegetable platter. If you pay attention, you’ll notice the ones that are pre-made rarely get any love. In fact, sometimes those plates aren’t even touched! This is because most guests love a home-cooked meal. After all, it’s healthier and usually tastes better!
At Spicy Chicks Gourmet, we understand not everyone is a talented chef, which is why we make our recipes so quick and easy to make. This holiday season, ditch the pre-made vegetable platter and make your own! The great thing about using our dips at your party is we have so many options to choose from. Maybe your guests don’t love the ranch dips that come with the typical grocery store platter. We have other options for everyone to love. We recommend our best seller, the Roasted Garlic and Asiago dip mix. It is to die for and has such a unique flavor!
Don’t Forget the Sweet Tooth!
The holiday season is the one time that almost everyone breaks their diet. If you only have one meal at your holiday party, please let it be dessert! A lot of people are intimidated by serving dessert because they don’t consider themselves to be skilled bakers.
With Spicy Chicks Gourmet, serving a delectable dessert has never been so easy. Our New York Cheesecake mix is a treat that almost everyone enjoys. Whip it up and serve it with some fruit, and you will have an easy and delicious crowd favorite!
