Happy Thursday and happy first snowfall here in New England. Todays blog post is how to throw an easy Christmas party so you’re not stressed out when guests arrived.
Plan 2 week before:
What I do is figure out what kind of party is it cocktail, casual, family gathering, or even a sit down meal. Start there.
When you figured out what kind of atmosphere, plan the food, do you want sit down, buffet, or family style.
1 week before:
Figure out what kind of food you want and side dishes.
Pork loin, carrots, salad, potatoes
chicken mashed potatoes, salad, bread,
Rule of thumb:
if you have a heavy dinner do a light dessert, or vise versa
3 days before:
Set the table, make things ahead,
Clean the house:
Vacuum, fluff the pillows, buy the wine,
1 day before:
Peel potatoes, blanch the carrots, etc…
enjoy the party, get dress put the pork loin loin, meat ect… the main course in oven before guests show up.
