I love the holiday season for many reasons. It’s a period when we spend more time with our family and loved ones, and it gives us the opportunity to catch up and just enjoy one another’s company. I get a kick out of entertaining during this time of year and inviting everyone over. I think in my former life, I was a Hostess with the Mostess.
I enjoy decorating and cooking and coming up with games and fun things for us to do, but it can sometimes be costly. So I look to stores and brands that will allow me to still throw an fun and memorable fete without breaking the bank. There’s no reason why this mama has to spend a mint to throw a party.
CVS has become a staple during my party prep routine for my holiday get-togethers. Their Gold Emblem, Gold Emblem abound, and Total Home brands are high quality, but don’t cost as some of the others, so I can use the savings for other things. Just about everything you need is available at your local CVS store. Serving goods like paper plates and plasticware are always at the lowest price, plus you can score snacks like that your guests won’t be able to get enough of. Pretty much everything you need can be found at CVS and their Gold Emblem, Gold Emblem abound, and Total Home labels.
Don’t believe me, just watch (the quick video below to see just what I found at my local CVS store):
Holiday entertaining with CVS is a breeze, and I can save time and money by shopping there. Talk about win/win!
Add to that additional savings from their weekly circular ads and sales and you will sure to be able to throw an amazing holiday shindig that you can be proud of.
Here are a few quick holiday entertaining tips to make your next event epic:
Be Our Guest
If you are serving food, buffet style can really help take the hard work out of it, since everyone serves themselves. And you don’t have to have a massive spread either—just a few selections that will go over well for your guests.
You can use Facebook or Evite to send digital invites to those you want to invite to your event. Cuts down on stamp costs, and people are more likely to reply to them online.
Packaged snacks and goodies are an excellent way to help keep your guests happy. Use decorative bowls and platters to serve them and viola!
So, now that you have the scoop of holiday entertaining with CVS, I hope you will visit your local store before your next event. What are your tips for throwing a fun and festive holiday party?
