Hopeless to Hostess:
The Ultimate Holiday Hosting Planner

Do Holidays Give You Anxiety?

If hosting a holiday party or dinner feels scary and overwhelming,
the new and improved Holiday Hosting Planner is for you.

All you want to make everyone happy…

But you feel so unorganized and overwhelmed

There’s so much prep work that goes into make this time of year special.

But, year after year you just feel defeated.

  • When the holiday season is over, you’re exhausted and your nerves are shot. You organize the meal, prepare every dish, and you’re stuck with cleanup afterward.
  • You’re worried the dishes won’t turn out as planned. You try to accommodate dietary restrictions, picky eaters, and special requests. Some family members want to stick to tradition while others want variety.
  • You’re out of oven space and time. Casserole dishes are layered in warming drawers while the family hovers as if they might starve at any moment. Plus, the table is haphazardly set, looking nothing like the magazine tear-out you saved.
  • You don’t have any time to put yourself together. By the time dinner is served, your make-up has melted, your hair is a mess, and you’re a sweaty frazzled, mess.
  • You feel like you are constantly disappointing someone – whether it’s declining your favorite cocktail party or failing to work it out so the family can all see each other.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Imagine if you could…

  • Feel fulfilled at the end of a holiday meal, grateful and appreciative of each person that joined your family.
  • Have a timeline and list to tell you everything that needs to be done in the days and weeks leading up to the meal. 
  • Have a beautiful meal prepared on time that could be enjoyed by everyone.
  • Spend some time taking care of yourself between the prep work and guests arriving, so you feel refreshed and ready to enjoy the evening with your family.
  • Release the pressures of a magazine-worthy table, the expectations of yourself and others, and just be present with the ones you love.
