Can you believe it's already November? The holidays are upon us and the new year is right around the corner! As much as I adore Halloween, I always love the beginning of November and the small reprieve it brings before the holiday rush. I love taking down my spooky decorations, giving everything a fresh clean and preparing my home and family for the upcoming season.
Now is the perfect time to stock up on holiday essentials. Take a few minutes this week to inventory your kitchen cabinets and re-stock the baking supplies. Refrigerated cookie dough, extra frosting, and chocolate chips make for easy baking. Consider setting up a coffee and cocoa bar for after school treats and drops-ins. Don't forget the crushed candy cane and marshmallows! Add some decorative paper travel cups so you can send your guests home with something warm to drink. Frozen mini quiches, cheese and crackers and salted nuts are snacks I always have on hand for entertaining and can be prepared quickly. Spend a little time preparing this week so you can enjoy your your friends and family, your home and your holiday.
