Holiday entertaining doesn’t have to be difficult, inconvenient and food for guests doesn’t always have to be homemade. I recently discovered this Hillshire Social Platters: Genoa Salame & Calabrese Salame at Meijer and it helps me to be holiday ready with little to no effort involved. Don’t miss the special mPerks coupon: $2.50 off 1 product 11/17-12/31!

If you’re like me, you like to make things nice, so you may be hesitant to just slap a plastic store bought tray in your holiday spread. But with these Hillshire® Snacking Social Platters you just flip and serve in their pretty divided tray. To make it extra elegant I like to dress up this store-bought time saver with a few holiday hacks using decor I have around the house. All you will need to get is a wooden cutting board, some holiday napkins, a few small holiday knick knacks and a little bit of “holiday fluff” like garland or other green and red holiday decor.

Let Me Walk You Through It

I like to use a pretty wooden cutting board, if you do not have a cutting board you can just use a pretty platter you have on hand as well. Next, I gather some holiday decor.

These cute little snowmen are perfect to spruce up my food board. They are small enough to fit with my Hillshire® Snacking Social Platter and the other decor.

Next, I find some extra garland that I have leftover from decorating. This really says “holiday” to me and we all have some of this laying around when we are done decorating.

I like to use colorful napkins that I get at the dollar store along with something to hold them in place like this cute berry wreath. Once you have gathered all your decor you are ready to dress up your Hillshire® Snacking Social Platter food bfoard.

Flip your Hillshire® Snacking Social Platter over onto the board and arrange your decor around the platter. I love that the Hillshire® Snackig Social Platters are so easy that you can just flip & serve it.

After you flip it, it’s time to serve. All you have to is peel the plastic off the top. It is THAT easy.

Then all you have to do is arrange your napkins and decor around the Hillshire Social Platter and set it out for your holiday guests. It is so easy, beautiful to look at, and guests will be impressed with your gourmet snack.

I found my Hillshire Social Platters: Genoa Salame & Calabrese Salame at my local Meijer store and was also able to pick up a few other items for my holiday entertaining.

I know that your guests will love this Hillshire® Snacking Social Platter and you will love the convenience of it. This is a great way to be holiday ready with little to no time or effort. Just find a few cute decor items and flip & serve your Hillshire® Snacking Social Platter. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Thank you for reading and Happy Eating! Love, Tipsy

    Using extra, leftover decor to spruce up the snack table is a great idea! #client
