When the holidays call for big attendance but small space, consider having your party outdoors!

Adding festive lighting is always a cause for celebration and a draw outside. Encourage guests to gather outdoors by setting up your beverage station outside. Hot ciders mulling in a crock pot and a varietal of red wines are always warming and comforting considerations.

Crock pots are also great for keeping soup at a perfect temperature. Consider serving your favorite “soup de jour” as a pleasing appetizer. (Don’t forget the toppings!) Your guests can cuddle up with a warm bowl and grab a favorite blanket from a cozy cache stacked in a corner or rolled up in a basket for easy grabbing. Portable heaters, fire pits, even bonfires along with great company and delightful conversation will surely be sufficient to warm the hands and hearts of friends and family!
