This year is my first holiday dinner. I’ve attended lots of them, and I’ve helped with a few. This year, I’m taking over. I’m leading the show. Bree is there for me, but I’m the one calling the shots this time. It’s something I’ve wanted to take on for the last couple of years, but this Christmas will be the one. I’m not going in unprepared. I’ve thought this one through and have gone through every tip list I could find for throwing your first holiday dinner. Since I don’t want to be alone in getting this one right, I thought I’d share the best ones I found for anyone else who is hosting this year.
