From the beginning of September to St. Patrick’s Day, I can think of at least 7 opportunities to get your holiday décor game on. None of this involves a trip to Party City, just so we’re clear. I’m talking about carving pumpkins, hand making decorations, setting up elaborate lights, utilizing organic materials and creating deep resentment from friends and relatives who cannot pull this stuff off as effortlessly as you do. You know, what the holidays are really all about. The most import thing about being a holiday entertainer is to remember the golden rule: treat your guest as you would like others to treat you. A candle in the bathroom, enough toilet paper, hand towels, and wonderful sights and sounds, along with tantalizing smells and delicious food and beverages. If this sounds difficult to do right, well that’s because it is. It takes tons of effort and lots more time than you probably have, but it’s time to dig deep and show them what your made of: LET’S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!!!!!
