The countdown is on until Christmas is here! Can you believe it? Anyone hosting a holiday party this week? Then next week we will all be opening presents, possibly hosting a Christmas dinner & opening our homes to lots of family & friends! Sounds like so much fun. :) Honestly though doesn't that all sound a little bit stressful, too? ha! ;) Well, I have found THE perfect place to look for holiday tips, treats, gift & entertaining ideas & even recipes all in one spot! I just finished checking out Bed Bath & Beyond's Holiday Your Way. It is amazing! :) Keep reading to see some of the tips & tricks I found that are going to help me be prepared (& less stressed) this holiday season! :)
I love planning parties! So I was so thrilled to find tons of holiday party theme ideas! :) I especially LOVED the gift wrapping party idea. Now that is genius! ;)
Probably the biggest stress to me when company is coming over is cleaning the house! Eek! So I loved Bed Bath & Beyond's tips on how to clean the house in 23 minutes. I am so trying this one out! ;)
Another tough one for me is wrapping presents! I know! I have a craft blog. I should be pretty good at wrapping gifts, but I'm not! haha! So I loved the step by step on how to wrap a gift. Maybe I can bring my gift wrapping abilities up a notch. haha! ;)
If you are heading out of town instead of hosting this year then you'll need to check out all the fun hostess gift ideas! I loved the idea of giving mason jars filled with holiday treats that you can leave with your host to re-purpose later on. They also have links to fabulous items on the Bed Bath & Beyond site that would make awesome hostess gifts (like this pretty cake dome).
Does anyone have the real tree/fake tree debate in your house? Then you'll want to check out the article on why a fake tree might actually be better.
