5 great tips : Hosting for Christmas

November 24th, 2016,

It's your turn to host the Christmas dinner and you're feeling a bit panicky? Here are five suggestions to help you:

  1. It's coming (way) faster than we think! Start right away by making a to-do list: guest list, menu, inventory of tableware / pots and pans, decorations, purchases, cleaning...
  2. Plan according to your schedule: grab your calendar and reserve time slots for the things on the list of item #1. Keep free time in the days leading to the reception for dry cleaning, the hair salon, the florist...
  3. Start stocking up on non-perishable food and alcohol; you know as well as I do that it gets crazy starting on December 20th;
  4. Favor trading gifts and home-made presents: less presents = less time and money spent. And after all, what we want is to be together, no?
  5. Order your Christmas Lulu in a Box collection(s) right away! (We also will be overwhelmed...)
