Ellen's Advice on How to Simplify Entertaining

Entertaining in style doesn't mean a hostess (or host) can't take a few short cuts to make preparations just a little easier.

A few tips from Ellen:

1. Satisfy your guest's appetites between meals, order a selection of savory hors d'oeuvres. Serve them up with a few store bought items that store well. Suggestions for a well-stocked holiday pantry: dried fruit, mixed nuts, your favorite crackers and cheese, tapenade, italian salami, and assorted olives.

2. For the grand finale, dazzle your guests with a scrumptious and beautiful dessert that is extraordinary. With just 48 hours notice and using only fresh ingredients, Ellen will create a special holiday cake to match your every desire. If you don't have time to pre-order a dessert, stop by Desserts By Design to see what's ready in our pastry case.

3. Plan ahead by laying out a meal plan including decorations. Organize your shopping list by store and you won't forget a thing.
