News Outlook Your Hometown Newspaper November 30, 2017 - 17 0 0 (t 0 People who live in com- pact homes or apartments may find space is at a pre- mium during regular times of the year. When the holi- days arrive, decorations, trees and presents can . make homes seem even more cluttered. This can make it especially chal- lenging for holiday hosts who want to open up their homes for festive gather- ings. Even if space is at a pre= mium, all it takes is a little ingenuity to entertain suc- cessfully. 1. Put nonessential furni- Hosting a holiday meal for loved ones provides an exciting op- portunity to bring iam- ily and friends together during a special time of year. First-time hosts may be a little nervous and put pressure on themselves to make the meal just right. But there are a few tricks of the trade nowices can employ to calm their nerves and enjoy their first foray into holiday hosting. Go with what you know. Experimenting in the kitchen can be fun, but such experi- mentation should be avoided when hosting for the holidays. When planning the menu for your holiday dinner, choose a main course that you have prepared ture and other decor away. It's impossible for would- be holiday hosts to move all of their belongings out of their homes to create en- tertaining space. But hosts can certainly cut down on clutter. Check out the flow of a room and then move pieces around as needed to open up floor space. Push tables or large pieces of furniture up against walls. Swap out armchairs for folding chairs. Stow knick- knacks in bedrooms or in closets. 2. Put benches and wide ledges to use. Narrow benches, such as those common to picnic tables, can seat three or four com- fortably. Do not discount deep window ledges as potential seats, as these areas can be made more comfortable with pillows or cushions. 3. Collapse tables after meals. If a sit-down dinner is the goal, set up tables accordingly. Then break down the tables afterward to free up more space. Serve small desserts that can be easily transported from room to room. 4. Use islands and coun- tertops. Tables can take up valuable space. When en- tertaining a lot of guests, set up an all-purpose coun- ter island and add bar- stools. This can be an area for food prep, eating and entertaining. 5. Create conversation areas. Encourage guests to spread out by setting up intimate spots in various rooms This way guests wofft feel the need to con- gregate in the same space. Bistro tables in a den, a few foor pillows in front of the fireplace and stools by a kitchen island will create ! conversation areas. 6.Expand outside, if pos- sible. Rent a tent that can be warmed with a space heater. If your home has a closed-in porch or patio space, cover screens with insulating plastic to create a comfortable added room. 7. Skip a sit-down meal. Large tables take up a lot of space, so serve a buf- fet, tapas or passed hors d%euvres so guests mix and mingle rather than sit down at one large table. 8.

This will increase the amount of room you have to serve and store items. 9. Spread out refresh- ments.

In ad- dition to preparing the meal, hosts must also ready their homes so they can create a wel- coming environment for their guests. Once you have chosen the menu, look for items that can be prepared in advance of the big day. Desserts can often be made several days in advance, as can certain side dishes. Do as much prep work for the main course the night before the meal as possible. - Double check your Instead, ask guests to bring a bottle of wine, a small dessert or even some snacks guests can eat while waiting for the main course. Ask about food aller- gies. While hosts don t need to cater to every food allergy under the sun, ask each guest if there is any particular food or ingredient they absolutely must avoid. If enough guests admit they must avoid a par- ticular dish, you then know not to prepare it. In addition, have plenty of vegetables on hand for guests who are veg- an or vegetarian.
