I start the planning early for my holiday entertaining so I'm ready to host whenever the mood hits me. I keep my bar stocked with seasonal favorites from Boylan Heritage and Morris Kitchen and break out my fabric yardage - muted blush and orange for fall and tartan plaid (or the occasional shower curtain) for impromptu holiday table setting. As my husband says, I have this entertaining thing "down to a science" and throw together a spread that looks like it took weeks to prepare in about an hour or so. Investing in a few good pieces for your bar and keeping the key elements seasonal, but not thematic, will carry you through from Thanksgiving to New Years Eve without having to switch it up every time you have guests. Here are my favorite picks for this season. Happy Holidays!
