The holiday season is officially here, are you ready? Use my holiday party planning guide (inside!) to help keep you on track.
This month, I am pleased to share my collaboration with Macaroni Kid Havertown-Bryn Mawr-Wayne as a contributing writer for their annual Holiday Guide. I connected with Heidi, the editor and publisher of Macaroni Kid Havertown-Bryn Mawr-Wayne, an online family fun guide highlighting local events and advice for parents with children.
Heidi was kind enough to put together a Holiday Guide for readers that features gift ideas (shop local!) and events you won't want to miss, as well as my featured article.
In the Macaroni Kid Holiday Guide, you'll find my article on effortless hostessing tips as well as an exclusive download of my Holiday Party Planning Checklist that will make entertaining this holiday season as smooth as ice.

On November 13, 2015 Alexandria Catherine Events partnered with Sprout Music Collective to host a Movember Happy Hour fundraiser.
After weeks of planning, the Movember Happy Hour fundraiser took place at Sprout Music Collective featuring Bacton Hill and Eric Reavey, performers who donated their time and talent to help us to raise awareness and funding for the Movember Foundation this past Friday evening.
Eric Reavey pleased ticket holders by performing his original songs as well as taking requests (Ed Sheerhan & Beyonce!). You can download his EP here.
Bacton Hill wowed us with their unique sound, a combination of folk and rock, even ending their set with an incredible Irish piece. You can shop their store here.
Thank you to everyone who attended the Movember Happy Hour and to those who played a part in making it such a success. Together, we were able to raise awareness and funding for the Movember Foundation, a charity that benefits men's health.
The holiday season is nearing, and Thanksgiving is going to kick things off in just a few short weeks. While prepping for Thanksgiving dinner is often hectic, you can incorporate the little ones and make it a memorable bonding experience.
Whether you put them in charge of washing produce or grabbing ingredients out of the refrigerator, these small but important tasks will make them feel like they have a special role in preparing Thanksgiving Dinner.
2. Drawing Placecards
Have an artist on your hands? You can ask them to contribute this year by drawing place cards for each guest that you are expecting. Let them get creative!
3. Decorating the Table
While you are cooking, you can put the kids in charge of setting and decorating the table. Encourage them to scavenge for natural elements in the yard that they could incorporate, such as acorns and pinecones.
