The Christmas season can be one of the most hectic times of the year with all the planning, shopping, and decorating involved. Because of this, you may expect to have missed a couple of details, whether it’s for the food, the people you invited, or even how your home can accommodate your guests.
If you catch on to these details early on, then good for you! However, if the holiday rush distracts you from checking on the preparations and leaves you with a lot of work to do in a week, or even days, before the celebration, then you better strap on your snow boots because you’ve got to get everything done before the guests come over!
Here are some last-minute tips to ensure a successful holiday house party:
More food is always good. Even if you count the number of people attending your party, it’s always best to cook a little more than the headcount. This is because you need to consider the fact that some people won’t be satisfied with just one serving of Christmas ham and mashed potatoes. So, don’t make a menu that limits your guests!
Additionally, you never know if some of your guests invited an extra friend or two. By cooking extra, you can rest assured that these surprise guests will still be able to feel at home and enjoy the feast.
