Fabulously Festive

Meal Planning for busy weeks or a holiday gathering?


Remember last year when the festive season nearly drove you to distraction? You were the last one in the store and almost ended up fighting someone for the last turkey. You dreamed of creating something so beautiful for your family, but in the end you nearly lost your mind! Every year it’s the same. You end up rushing around and doing everything at the last minute.

Perhaps you tried to be organized and prepare dishes ahead of time only to find that the only way to keep things warm was to stick them in your car with the heater on high? (Don’t judge! I’ve done this!)

Or what about that year that you did all of the holiday meal shopping the day before and were left without yams, a parking spot or any hair from pulling it all out?
