As we embrace the holiday seasons, we remember the joys and the stresses of celebrating holidays and getting together with family, friends and loved ones. Even with the pandemic still influencing our decisions regarding the holidays, we’ve put together some easy tips you can use, regardless of how you’re celebrating and what you’re celebrating.
Every great event contains great food. We’re out of practice preparing great food but turned to Canadian Living’s Creamy Herbes de Provence recipe to ensure our apps are incredible. We make entertaining easy with our Herbes de Provence blend of herbs.
A Gift for the Host
Bring a dish to share
Most great event attendees bring a dish to share. Consider making some incredible buns or bread to add to a great meal. Check out a recipe for Olive Oil and Herbes de Provence Bread that inexperienced and experienced bakers can prepare. We make entertaining easy with our Herbes de Provence blend of herbs.
Hosting an event where there are people who have not met? Make sure you spend some time doing introductions. Introductions help break the ice and build relationships.
Overstock the bar
Hosting an event where there is alcohol? Overstock your bar. This will ensure that guests get the drink of their choice. May we suggest setting up a self-serve bar. This frees up the host or hostess and puts guests in control of their own drinks.
Set up a Kid-Friendly Space
Whatever event you’re hosting, consider setting up an area just for the kids. This area may include items like colouring books and crayons, kid-friendly food, playdough and more. It builds a space where kids can be themselves.
As we embrace the holidays and hosting events, we want to spend more time with our guests than cooking, cleaning and tending bar. Embrace the holiday season!
