TV Host and Lifestyle Expert, Ereka Vetrini, Shares Tips on Holiday Entertaining

The holidays are here and ‘tis the season to eat, drink and be merry. But sometimes, playing host can feel more like a burden than a blessing. Recently, TV Host and Lifestyle Expert, Ereka Vetrini, teamed with YourUpdateTV to share her secrets on holiday entertaining.

  • Holiday Menu:

The holidays are all about the food, but they are also about spending quality time with friends and family. Look for ways to spend less time in the kitchen and more time with the loved ones.

These incredibly delicious “Build Your Own Holiday Meals” from America’s Original Butcher, Omaha Steaks, include everything needed to put out the perfect holiday spread without spending hours in the kitchen. Customize each meal by choosing a main dish – like this 10-pound turkey – and sides like Brussel sprouts with bacon and shallots, or these family-sized whipped sweet potatoes. Warn your guests to save room for dessert because they won’t be able to resist the pecan pie.

Remember that it’s ok to get a little help during the holidays, especially when it tastes this good.

  • Entertaining Responsibly:

Drunk driving is still the #1 cause of death on U.S. roadways and holiday time can be especially dangerous with more parties and time spent on the road.

There are 300,000 incidents of drinking and driving every day! That’s why Mothers Against Drunk Driving is working toward a goal of No More Victims and have teamed up with Mocktails to provide hosts and drivers with a good alternative to stay sober and be safe.

Mocktails are a fun, festive, and healthy option that doesn’t have alcohol. They come in four delicious flavors, including Mockapolitan, Mockarita, Sansgria, and Mockscow Mule. Plus, they are natural, non gmo, allergen free. Because Mocktails are so satisfying and healthy, guests that aren’t drinking, whether pregnant, in training, or simply taking a break from alcohol, can still feel included.

  • Less Time Cleaning, More Time Celebrating:

Holiday entertaining can be a blast, but let’s be real: the prep work and cleanup can be a real downer. Still, gathering together friends and family is what the holidays are all about so everyone needs some easy, fuss-free ways to execute and clean up.

  • Number one tip…always have the Chinet® brand products on hand…the products are both stylish and practical.

Chinet® Comfort Cups® insulated hot cups are perfect for after dinner coffee, tea or hot chocolate. The snap and go lids allow your guest to take their drinks to-go without worrying about mess or spills.

Whether it’s a spur of the moment or perfect planned party, the Chinet® Cut Crystal® collection adds a touch of style to holiday set-up. Use the Chinet Cut Crystal 9oz cup for a fun and festive hot-chocolate bar. The only thing better than hot chocolate, is hot chocolate with everyone’s favorite fixings.
