Entertaining during Christmas can take on many forms.  Invitations to parties, parties you host, family holiday get-togethers, etc.  We might not consider many things we do entertaining but, for our planning purposes, any event you are hosting where you invite someone to your home, should be considered “entertaining.”

What type of parties do you like?  Formal, casual, during the day, at night, activity related, small gathering, lots of people, adults only, children included, types of foods, etc. 

How many and what type of gatherings would you like to host this year? 

Make a list of foods you normally serve at parties.

Do you want to give your guests a party favor?  If so list some ideas of what you might like to give for each party you plan on hosting.
