Entertaining Urbanistas-Holidays

Now that my fashion and beauty kick is resting (for awhile), wanted to settle down and post about entertaining for the holidays.  As I mentioned before, I am an entertaining junkie, so this is about the time I plan a fabulous holiday fete for both friends and family.  This year I am hosting Thanksgiving at my home.  I am planning for close to 25 people, and I am a little nervous.  Since I am not enthused about cooking for this many people, I decided to make this a family affair so everyone will bring a dish.

The following day, I plan to host a tree trimming party. Since everyone will still be in town, they can help me put up my tree and decorate the house for Christmas time.  I'm gonna put on my Motown Christmas hits, bring out my decorations and let everyone have at it!  Since there will be several children, I decided to put together a smores station so they can make smores in the fireplace.  We will then bake cookies and make hot cocoa for all to enjoy.  For eats, we'll nibble on leftover turkey and sweet potatoe pie!

Whatever you decide to do this holiday season, please remember the purpose of it all.  It's about giving thanks, and celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ!!
