Don’t look now, but there are only 19 more Fridays until Christmas. The holidays will be here before you know it, and it is never to early to start planning. In fact, if you will be hosting any type of holiday event this year, you should already be creating a timeline and scouting out venues. The longer you wait, the fewer choices you will have. Venues will be booked, and the top vendors will already have clients. The holiday trends of 2015 will save you time and stress during your planning.
Small plates are a big deal right now. Your guests can fill theirs up with the various cheeses, jellies, and honeys that are popular right now. Many hostesses are opting to forego a traditional meal and serve a variety of appetizers instead. To ensure you are serving the freshest ingredients: go local. From baked goods, honey, table cloths, and flowers going local is in.
Relax! If you are stressed, your guests will sense it and they will not have the fun that you all intended. To help alleviate some of your stress take advantage of do-it-yourself stations. This trend allows your guests to build their own appetizers and drinks. This lighten your workload, enhances the experience of your guests, and prevents anyone from eating something they are not very fond of.
