Melissa's 3 Foolproof Tips For Holiday Entertaining

  1. "Make a 'dream list' for your event, then cross one or two things off of it. You don't need to overdo it!"
  2. "Don't forget that you are the most important thing you're serving! If you're tied to the kitchen instead of greeting and spending time with your guests, you should rethink your menu."
  3. "Serve fewer things, but more of them. I hosted a 'Polar Express' party for my girls' kindergarten class and just served chili, mac and cheese, and cornbread. There were probably 10 kinds of chili there, but it seemed intentional, and nobody went home hungry!"
