Holiday gatherings and parties don’t have to be fussy and complicated. Focus on making fun memories. Favorite tips for holiday hosting.
Seek out the ready-to-serve solutions available. Whole Foods Market stores has elegant hors d’oeuvres such as assorted appetizer bites, crudites with veggie dippers, smoked salmon, shrimp platters, frozen lobster tails (split, broil and serve with herb compound butter) and beef tenderloin (salt, pepper and fresh herbs), olives, fresh baked bread – spend more time relaxing with family and friends.
Keep plenty of beverages on hand. Stock cool flavors of Italian Sparkling Mineral Water, fruit juices and coconut water and you’ll be ready whenever company stops by.
Serve a variety of cheeses. A Cheddar, a creamy goat cheese and a non-dairy “cheese” let people with different eating styles enjoy the cheese plate. Then add gluten-free crackers, different types of nuts, fig jam and olives.
As a guest, be the hit of the party by gifting your host with Just for the Holidays Special Limited-Edition Products – Italian Sodas (flavors to choose from), traditional Italian Christmas favorite Panettone (selections vary), Eggnog and/or Eggnog Italian Gelato.
