How many holiday parties are you hosting during this holly, jolly season? I’m getting ready to host a party for 50 girlfriends. It’s an annual party filled with food, fun, friends and lots of laughter and holiday cheer.

I’ve always been a bit of a perfectionist and there was a time when I would work way too hard when it came to throwing a party. The day after would find me wrapped up on the sofa with a soft blanket and a good book to help me recuperate.

Those days are long gone! I now know how to work smarter and not harder. Why throw a party you can’t enjoy because you’re too tired?

The planning stages of a party can be downright daunting.  I’ll admit I’ve had a brain freeze or two in the midst of planning my menu.

Because I’ll be hosting so many holiday gatherings, Sam’s Club is my go-to for all my party supplies. I buy my favorite crackers, Keebler® Toasteds® Crackers, Keebler® Club® Crackers, and Keebler® Entertainment Crackers Collection in bulk and recreate the easy recipes from the Keebler® Party Planner Live App.
