I'm currently planning my Christmas Eve dinner with my family. Even though there are only 6-8 people coming there's so much to plan. Food, decorations, entertainment and of course gifts! I'm using Bed Bath & Beyond's Holiday Your Way site to help make my plans.
Each week, Bed Bath & Beyond serves up freshly baked ideas and videos along with expert advice to help you stay on track as you prepare for all your holiday celebrations. Visit their site and click on one of the menu items in the top bar.
It will lead you to a timeline representing where we are in the holiday season along with a thumbnail list of interesting ideas and suggestions that will help you in the area of expertise you are searching for.
Their Holiday Entertaining section included things you might never even think of like holiday party themes, how to fold napkins, even common guest allergies (let me tell you as a person who is allergic to cats, it's always nice when my host has pseudoephedrine and zyrtec on hand).
I liked this video in their Holiday Recipes section about how to make your food look pretty. I mean it's crazy how much time gets put into food prep and hardly anything into food presentation.
They also have a great gifting section with ideas from bringing the right wine to baking cookies that will stay fresh overseas.
I'm considering using their Orange-Ginger glazed ham recipe for my dinner.
Wet your appetite yet?! Go check out the site and get inspired! And if you have any holiday tips to share please do so! I always love a clever idea or tip. There's still a few days left to plan, plan, plan!
