I love the idea of being a legendary hostess, but can never pull it off. This year, my husband volunteered us to host Christmas dinner and I am absolutely stressed. Although I enjoy decorating, cooking, and socializing, I don’t enjoy being responsible for everyone’s good time. Our house isn’t small, but I tend to get overwhelmed very easily when we have more than a few guests.
Tip #3: Make it a potluck! – When everyone helps, it’s easier to relax. As a bonus, you’ll also get a nice variety of food.
Tip #6: Don’t go overboard – I really don’t think that everyone needs an elaborate gift or individual place cards. Keep it light and fun. I like a simple Christmas tablecloth paired with some fun serving dishes and our usual Christmas decor.
