OK my Katies, my Kats, and my fellow procrastinators,
Are you struggling with entertaining over Thanksgiving or already freaking out about Christmas? Who needs some last minute, get it all done tips?
When you don't have time to backwards plan for weeks and you are pressed to the wire, when do you sleep and how in the world do you get it all done?
I feel you sister. As a matter of fact, I am in that very situation as I sit at my moms, 6 hours away from my house that needs to be cleaned, groceries that STILL need to be purchased and an unknown number of guests.
BUT, since I have been at this a loooong time, I have some tried and true, spot on tips and tricks that will absolutely let you entertain with a minimum of stress. I'm sharing my 4 Step Plan for Procrastinators to help you enjoy the time you have with family.
As a bonus, I have thought of a few more tips that I probably should have included!
4 Step Plan to Entertain without extra Stress:
1- Quickly Declutter.
2- Ready your spaces and clean.
3- Make a menu & shop.
4- Prepare as much as you can in advance and jam out to a motivational playlist.
*Think about friends who are single and invite them to join you
*Have a sink of hot soapy water to rinse off, wash, wipe and clean as you go.
*Delegate, delegate, delegate- which means ask for help!
*If using Cool Whip or ice cream for dessert toppings, set out of the freezer as you serve the food. That way it's soft enough to serve when you are ready!
*Have guests load their dish straight into your empty diswasher
*Get containers or baggies for leftovers.
*Consider getting to go containers from a local restaurant (or purchase at the store) to take a plate to someone who is alone, recovering from a sickness or surgery, or shut in.
