Holiday help is here! Great Holiday Entertaining Tips!

Whether you are ready or not, the holidays are here. Tis' the season of family gatherings, cooking, baking and entertaining. You might be organized and ready (boy do I envy you!), but I am nowhere near prepared. In order to de-stress and kick myself into gear, I've asked a few of our Twitter pals to stop by and share their holiday tips with us. I hope you find them as useful as I do!

@TheHipHostess: When burning votive candles in glass holders, add a 1/2 tsp of water to the bottom before inserting candle. Later, candle will pop right out.

@CreateGirl: My #1 holiday decorating tip is do not overwhelm your house! Pick a few areas and go all out decorating them. For example chose the mantel, foyer and dining table to create festive focal points. Choose a two color theme and carry this throughout the house it will unify all three areas. There is no need to decorate every table top and nook in your home having less will definitely create and even larger impact!

@KateLandersLLC: When baking with very young children for the holidays, it's best to have them decorate pre-assembled gingerbread houses or pre-made cookies!

    To save time, find gifts that are pre-wrapped. Like this charming, hand-embroidered natural muslin bag of gourmet sea salt from Sal del Mar, www.saldelmar.com. It's reasonably priced and keeps giving all year long as the recipient pulls out the bag while baking or cooking recipes throughout the year!

  • Leslie, The Cleaning Coach Says:

    If you are going over to your friends for dinner, take a nice green dish soap along with some fancy rubber gloves. Then offer to do the dishes with them! They will love the gesture and the special time spent together over the kitchen sink.
