Day 21 - Christmas Holiday Open House


Meri Meri "Tis the Season" Cake Stand, on Amazon

CHRISTMAS PARTY ACTIVITY:


Invite all your friends to stop by from say noon through ten during your holiday open house. Keep coffee on and hot water for tea; put appetizers in the oven every couple hours; keep snacks and desserts out, freshening your table every few hours. Make cocktails as guests arrive, and perhaps have a punchbowl available. Invite guests to stop by and visit, pick up any presents you might have for them, sit and relax and enjoy a festive party. Keep fun Christmas movies playing on one of your televisions, but have the sound down low so people can still visit easily and hear each other.
