The holidays can be the most wonderful time of the year, but they can also be the most stressful, with expectations for holiday gatherings so much higher than normal day-to-day get-togethers. Translation: there's usually more work to do. Long holiday to-do lists don’t help. But Stirrings® can! Here are a few ideas to lighten your load.
Set up a cocktail table with pitchers of premixed, holiday-themed favorites. With Stirrings® Mixers, this will be done in a snap. And don’t forget the non-alcoholic options! We’ve got some great suggestions below.
Here at Stirrings®, you can always find our staff comparing and sharing recipes during the holidays. Beef Tenderloin is a holiday mainstay, and a delicious sauce will transform this dish from tasty, to something guests will rave about. What puts this meal over the top are warm Thyme Popovers, which we can guarantee will disappear all too quickly!
A Christmas Tree Decorating Party can be a lot of fun, without a lot of stress. A naked tree isn’t the sign of an unprepared hostess; it’s a blank canvas that encourages guests to get creative! And it’s the kind of party that can be held any time of the day, giving you lots of menu options. Before guests arrive, have the tree set up in its stand, light a fire, and queue the Christmas carols.
