Hostess Mostess

 Half the magic of a Christmas event... is walking in to a table set and a Christmassy vibe.   So here's some (unsolicited) hosting advice for the big day!

Status Anxiety

Don't get caught with your pants down

Be dressed and fully ready before guests arrive... you can always finish the food with friends there... but you can't shave your legs.  (NB: there's always that person who's 15 early.)


Good Christmas playlist, candles and a drink in hand

You want people to feel relaxed right from the get go.

Tablescaping

Fancy word. Simple concept. Collect some foliage, candles and lay it on a nice table cloth. Add some height with glassware, ceramic vases and pitchers. On the plates add some greenery, a christmas ornament or hand written name cards. 

Status Anxiety

Play it safe

Serve something tried and tested...think slow roasting, a couple of awesome sides and amazing bread.  A colourful drinks station of bubbles, sparking water and a cocktail making spot with fresh garnish options should do the trick.

Status Anxiety

Take a load off

Dodge the stressy host vibe... the dishes can wait.  Sit with your guests at every opportunity and soak it in.

Everyone will have a more enjoyable time if the host's relaxed - so don't sweat the small stuff and enjoy. You might not get to talk to everyone... but be fully present with who you're with.  Listen, laugh and enjoy. 

Happy Christmas from all here at Status Anxiety.
