How do you entertain during the holidays?

Posted by   + Show Post

Entertaining for your family and friends during the holidays can be a bit stressful but it doesn't have to be. We gave 20 CafeMom members a $100 gift card and various Dixie Ultra products to use for their holiday entertaining. Whether it's an everyday meal or you're entertaining guests, new Dixie designs always make a good impression!

Tell us about your family. How do you entertain during the holidays?

I would have loved to be chosen for this. Congrats to the ones who were chosen. I am looking forward to hearing the stories.

We love to entertain during the entire year, not just the holidays.

We usually have an awesome gathering at Christmas. Santa comes, the kids open a little gift, and there is always lots of yummy food and drinks to share with everyone :0)

This sounds like such a fun game! 

Quoting elwalters77:

Every year we host the Greed Game. Grown ups only. Everyone brings a tasty treat to share and several wrapped gifts.  The gifts are put into a pile on the floor and we all sit around them and roll dice. Each time you roll a 7 or 11 you get to take a gift. When they are all gone, everyone opens them and shows what they got. Now we set a timer and roll the dice again, but this time you know what the gifts are and you get to take them away from someone else. It gets crazy, but it's all in good fun and everyone has a blast!

We usually host Christmas dinner and a small New Years Eve party. This year we're hosting Thanksgiving too.

This would have been great to be apart of. I mostly just bake for family get togethers. They normally aren't at my home though.

Usually when I throw a party or meal for family, they all bring something.

My family is quite a large family so we try to get together as often as possible. We do thanksgiving dinners at my grandparents for they have the most space. And we also get together on Christmas also which is what my girls look forward to as for the have a large tree and everything's all nicely decorated...

We host Thanksgiving every other year. Pretty basic--lots of food. We do the meat and a few sides and a dessert. Everybody brings a dish.

I try to incorporate something more than just eating into the event--like games and such. But man! My family is just not into it. My parents are older and they're always "rush, rush, rush--gotta get home before dark." My sister and brother are both in retail, so sometimes they have to leave early to go to work. I WILL get someone to play with me this year!!! >:|  (that's my 'determined' face! LOL)
