What are some of your favorite entertaining ideas and recipes this holiday season?

Posted by   + Show Post


Busy moms know entertaining during the holidays can be a difficult job but it doesn't have to be. We asked 25 CafeMoms to be mBlog Ambassadors and visit Macy's mBlog site for holiday entertaining tips, gift ideas, recipes and more!  Then we asked them to come back to CafeMom and share what they've learned. With Macy's mBlog, CafeMoms have an online destination for home and lifestyle news supplied by an impressive network of industry experts and Macy's own in-house bloggers!

This months theme is home happenings. What's are some of your home entertaining ideas this holiday season?  Do you find any inspirations from mBlog for your holiday happenings?

 Our family gets together a lot during the holidays. I am lucky that most live closeby.  I have the largest home and most often everyone shows up here. We always have tons of food, lots of games to play and great laughter to go around.

I like to do my baking ahead of time and freeze it for later. I bake many kinds of cookies and quick breads (the quick breads taste moister after being frozen then thawed at room temperature). That way I am not overdoing it at the last minute.

mBlog has tons of creative ideas that are very helpful. This site is something that I will continue to check for new ideas and recipes. I will be trying this recipe this fall, I love cranberries, and this one is close to the same cranberry recipe my Grandma used to make.

My mil has a nice fire place in her living room. We always have a great time sitting around it and chatting. Its just so cozy.

Quoting Apr1l:

We love having a fire in our living room fireplace, its so cozy, our guests love it too.  We have very cold winters where I live, but the fireplace is nice to sit by and play a game or make smores indoor =D 

I saw these curtains on the mblog its great idea having curtains that help keep your home warm and insulate, and they look nice too bonus

Get Cozy


Reflect the colors of the season inside your home as well as out. The best place to start? Curtains! A quick switch of your window treatment can easily transform the look of any room. I love these by Pella. Not only do they come in a variety of Fall colors but they’re also energy-efficient – so you can keep warm inside & save money too!
