My bad habit is leaving things (all the things) until the absolute last minute and then becoming overwhelmed when there is too much on my plate – relatable? haha.  

Planning any holiday gatherings well in advanced is really the way to go here, and not only for the ease of less work in the long run; it also gives plenty of time to make any necessary changes to guest lists or menus and even brainstorm a little longer with ideas. 

Which also brings me to this particular list.  With just a handful of ideas to start us off, I just know "in time" more ideas will come.  So be sure to bookmark and head on back, because we'll be adding to this list as the ideas roll in!
