Do you enjoy hosting family parties during the holidays? I do. Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year generate a succession of opportunities to host holiday parties for family and friends. We have a bevy of birthdays and our anniversary dotting the landscape, as well. December is one busy month! That is why I am so glad that I learned how to host holiday parties the easy way.
We are all very busy at this time of year, aren’t we? Gifts to buy – gifts to wrap – delicious desserts to make and serve – decorating, setting up and cleaning up, too. I love it all.
Like my party table? I made it for a small breakfast gathering. We served danishes, pecan rolls, muffins and lots of fresh brewed coffee! Since I was prepared, I had real enjoyment putting it all together.
What I do not like, especially during the holidays, is to feel rushed. If we were to run low on something important, like toilet paper for instance, then I would have to drop all of my party prep to go get it. That ruins the fun. So, as a precaution, I decided to stock up on necessary supplies ahead of time.
I chose to go to Walmart. I love shopping at Walmart. Everything I need is right there and their prices are really great. So, I had my list: Kleenex® facial tissue, Scott bath tissue, Viva paper towels and Cottonelle toilet paper.
What I had not anticipated was finding the beautiful new Kleenex® products designed for holiday entertaining. They are so festive and useful, too. You never can have enough facial tissue so I bought a bunch!
First, I picked out two 2-packs of the Kleenex® Perfect Fit style to put out on the counter like a Christmas decoration. They remind me of pillar candles, minus the flame of course! I selected the snowman, a Santa and two others with sparkly designs. Each one looks like it belongs in a holiday display. The Kleenex® Oval packages are quite elegantly designed. I have one of each in my bathrooms.
The Kleenex® Hand Towels, likewise, fit in anywhere. I love that I can keep one near my kitchen sink to use for drying hands instead of everyone using a cloth towel. It reduces some of the extra laundry and I am all about that!
Walmart is so convenient, whether shopping in the store or ordering online. After I came home, I wished I had bought more of the Viva holiday style paper towels so I ordered them online to be shipped to my house with 2-day free shipping. I didn’t want to go back to the store again that soon.
For those who love the best of both worlds, you can order items online and have it waiting for you to pick up at the store. Want even easier? Skip the trip entirely and have your order delivered to your house with Walmart’s 2-day shipping. This time around, though, I was so glad that I went inside and saw the new Kleenex designs on display. My Kleenex boxes were the first Christmas decorating I did this year! LOL

We used to host every holiday and birthday and while I enjoyed it after 10- 12 years of hosting I did find that I just got burned out; no matter how easy I kept it. We tend to keep our holiday celebrations small and simple now.
Smaller is definitely more fun. I love the big parties but we do a lot of potluck now.
