Prepping for the Holidays! - The Jolly Busiest Season here we go!


Post in partnership with BJ's Wholesale Club.

And here we are, the holidays are here, tis the season that we deem to be waiting for all year. The time of the joyous togetherness, the happiness & the celebratory mood all around. The season of parties, get-togethers, socials and cocktail receptions, office parties and after-hour holiday meet-ups. It is the time for long conversations over the most delicious foods, with the most festive drinks in hands, cozied up while it is cold and blowing outside. 

It is also the time of increased pace, longer to-do lists, but shorter days... everything seems busier, more crowded and hectic. It is the time, when we scroll Pinterest for the best recipes,  all the hosting tips, for the jaw-dropping table centerpieces and the most surprising twists on the holiday staples. We then rush to the grocery store, fight for a parking spot, and 50 out  of 55 times, pick a cart with a swiveling wheel. And then a few days later, we have to do it all over again!

Unless, you get strategic about it, plan it out, stock-up on staple items to ensure you don't have to run back in to get every little thing you run out of. 
I seriously love my kids, and I love shopping with them, but maybe like once a month ;) because shopping with them is literally like trying to have five conversations simultaneously while being hit by an pool floatie all while you are trying to juggle a dozen eggs. Nonetheless, grocery runs, especially during the holiday season, are a must. 

That is why this year, with all the pre-christmas brunching, cocktail hosting I joined oBJ Wholesale Club to wisely address all our hosting needs. To cut down on multiple grocery runs and to cut down the grocery bill! Seriously, it is a no brainer, if I can spend less time shopping and save money while at it, why would I not!? We have just recently discovered this brilliant plan and signed up our BJ’s membership. It quickly became a one-stop-shop for us, from snacks, deli items and produce
we need daily, to diapers and personal care. And for the holidays, it has been super convenient for party planning and holiday hosting.

We are planning a little cocktail reception for all of our friends right before the holiday break, so we recently took a trip down to get prepped, and grabbed some diapers and paper towels on the way out, so it is a win win!


We love that BJ's has an extensive beer, wine and spirits alcohol section right inside their clubs, which truly makes them a one-stop shop.  We chose a selection of their exclusive Wellesley Farms Wines, which are is a house brand of BJ's, affordable yet of very good quality, I tested and approved.


We want to serve some warming cocktails, so mulled wine and winter sangrias will be making an appearance for sure, we also got some Prosecco sparking wine, which is perfect for the upcoming New Year's celebrations thus makes a perfect winter party drink by itself or as a cocktail.

We found the cutest decor to help spruce up the house for the holidays and set the holiday mood for the party. Additionally, we got all the finger foods and tapas ingredients we will be serving, so no other stops for necessary. And by buying items in bulk, we make sure we don't run out, additionally saving time and money on top of that! But as always, please drink responsibly.
