I love me some Patti Stanger. I have never missed an episode of Millionaire Matchmaker and have, in fact, seen every episode. Even though I am happily married, I find that I must tune...
Holiday Party in a Pinch
With all the holiday hustle and bustle, it probably feels like you’re always catching up …
Frito-Lay wants to help ensure you never miss a beat during the holidays. With some shortcuts and quick “better for you” recipes coupled with a little flair and presentation, you’ll have your guests asking “how does she do it?”
So, we bring you the “Holiday Party in a Pinch:” A few tips to prepare both the home and the pantry so you’re always ready to be the holiday hostess:”
* Ambiance is everything – Keep a playlist of festive music easily accessible or stock the stereo with CDs so it’s ready at the push of a button…literally. Add a few scented candles and presto…instant ambiance!
* Let guests add their touch – Keep a box of ornaments on hand and ask your guests to add one to the tree.
* No clean-up necessary – Stock-up on a supply of holiday-colored paper plates, napkins and utensils to lessen post-party clean-up. And if the house is tidy before you head out for the day, there’s no scrambling once they arrive!
* Stock the pantry – Have some “better for you” Frito-Lay products on hand to lessen the stress of “what to fix?” and allow for more time to visit with your guests. Frito-Lay’s Tostitos Scoops or Baked! Scoops — with a delicious dip — are true crowd-pleasers. Serve on a festive platter or dish and presto! …festive snacks ready to share!
* Entertain with ease – Always have several fun board games accessible to keep guests entertained. And a few kid-friendly movies or simple crafts will keep the little ones busy while the adults socialize.
Frito-Lay would like to help you prepare for your next “better-for-you” holiday party in a pinch by offering a gift basket assortment of Frito-Lay products, decorative serving bowl and a guide, “Last Minute Party Girl” to entertaining guests during the holidays (valued at approximately $40).
