“I received free product in exchange for my honest review.”

Fall means so many things to my family but most of all it means getting together with friends and family at least a few times a month. We always step it up even more between Thanksgiving, Game Days, Christmas and holiday parties galore. I love this season, don't you? What is more fun than having a houseful of friends and family while you are relaxing with some delicious food and drink? 

Over the years I have developed a real system for making a party great. Do everything ahead of time and say yes to delicious and easy shortcuts.  Of course you love to include some of your favorite recipes and appetizers but take some of the work out of your gathering and you will enjoy it more. Check out some of these party tips to make hosting a cinch. Consider an easy appetizer or two. Think dips, crackers, cheeses and items that are easy to do ahead of time. You have to create stress free party planning to make it simple and fun for everyone. The easier it is, the more time you can spend relaxing with friends and family. Choose a few ready-made nibbles like a bowl of nuts that are ready to go and you will be happy you did so.  There are tons of ways to make it easy!

We just had 20 people come for a recent Thanksgiving party and then this past weekend we had a big game party with another 15 guests. Both events were easy-peasy because I planned ahead and took my own tips on using ready made nibbles and easy appetizers. One item that really makes a party is meat, cheese and crackers. Everyone loves cheese and crackers plus those little extras like pepperoni and olives. Hormel has created a new option that simplifies all the shopping and puts many of those delicious snacks in one tray. There are several varieties so you can choose your favorites but wow, what a time-saver. You can use one of these trays by itself or supplement with additional appetizers. Either way it saves a bunch of shopping and prepping. Whether you love honey ham and turkey or adore hard salami and pepperoni, Hormel has a tray perfect for your next event. HORMEL GATHERINGS® Party Trays make it fun and easy. 

For Thanksgiving, I set out my HORMEL GATHERINGS® Party Trays as part of the appetizers. Add a few hot and cold dips, some additional crackers and bread sticks and I was done in a flash. Hormel crafted these portable party trays to make party hosting easy since they are a cinch to use. You can unwrap and serve right from the clear tray or you can re-plate and get a little fancier. They are priced very reasonably too. These appetizer trays really are perfect for any event including a tailgate or fall football. These party trays are totable and certainly would make a welcome hostess gift. There are several varieties available so you can try one or more at your next event.

Life is about friends, family and making those connections so keep it simple and let yourself have fun this season with a little help from Hormel.
