Holiday Entertaining Tip: Serving Bowls and Post-It Notes

Post It Note Serving Bowls

The last thing you want to be doing an hour before your guests arrive is figuring out what serving dishes you have and which one the mashed potatoes will fit in!  A couple days before your gathering, write post-its of each dish you will be serving.  Stick the post-it of the food onto the serving dish that you’ll be using for that recipe.  This gives  you a bit of time to plan out what will work best for each item on your menu.

By doing a little pre-planning before hand, you’ll be cutting down on your stress the day of the gathering.  Plus, If you are lucky enough to have helpers (spouse, children, family, friend) that are assisting you in the final preparation before the guests arrive, they already have a map of where the food goes!!

    This is such a simple tip but so smart and I would have never thought of it. Since my boyfriend and I are hosting Thanksgiving for the first time this year, I’m definitely Pinning this so I remember to do it!

    Pre-planing rules! I didn’t think of sticky notes either – but anything that reduces the stress just before the guests arrive is just perfect! Thanks for the tip 😉

    This is such a good idea. I do love a Post-It! I use them for all kinds of things, but I hadn’t done this yet.

Let me know what you think!
