Holiday entertaining can seem overwhelming – especially if you are busy leading up to the holidays and don’t have tons of time for party planning. I’m excited about this campaign for Sweet Holiday Treat fragrances from Glade® Sweet Holiday Treat™ which focuses on easy entertaining holiday touches. Here are five simple tips for planning a holiday party that is fun but not too overwhelming.
1. Create Customized Candle Lighting
I adore candles – and always buy amazing fragrances like the new Sweet Holiday Treat candles by Glade® Sweet Holiday Treat™. But because I shop with my nose, the colors don’t always match the table decor I’m going for. So I decorate the glass or put them in a larger glass jar like with these Mason jar candle-holders.
2. Prepare a Fun Gift For Attendees
Simple gifts, like cookie-mix-in-a-jar can be a nice, heartfelt touch for party-goers. I love this Cinnamon Shortbread cookie-mix in-a-jar recipe that Chris made. Who can say no to cookies!
3. Make Personalized Centerpieces
Dress up the table with a bright, cheerful centerpiece like this upcycled bottle vase. Use whatever ribbons or extra touches will coordinate with the color theme of the night. It can be super simple but still look great!
4. Have a Friendly, Interactive Meal
I love this suggestion by Rhoda to have a meal that guests can have fun with. Getting them in on the meal creation action can be a lot of fun. Whether it’s a baked-potato bar or pizza night, letting them get involved in making the meal will be a sure hit!
5. Lay a Colorful Spread!
Love this monochromatic tablescape which color-coordinates the Christmas decoration. By choosing one color and sticking with it for your centerpiece, scented candles (try one of the Glade® Winter Collection), and table runners, you will make decorating super simple.
Remember that holiday entertaining is about creating memories. Not about stressing out and going insane. Let’s simplify the party process and get on to the memory creation!
Get festive this holiday season with the Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection available exclusively at Target. Inspired by the best feelings of the season, the Glade® Sweet Holiday Treat™ scent lets you indulge in the irresistible scent of rich cocoa, toasted nuts, and creamy caramel. The 2013 Glade® Limited Edition Winter Collection was inspired by the nostalgic, spontaneous, snowy, moments that build up to the holidays. Creating memories with loved ones defines the season and the holiday lineup from Glade® is just as memorable.
