Unexpected guests this holiday season? You can count on us to take the stress out of hosting.

Surprise! Aunt Linda, Uncle Greg and their three kids decided to make a last-minute visit. No need to panic though. Whether you have one week or one hour to plan, we have the necessary tips and tricks to impress any guest this holiday season.  

Take inventory

Spend some time looking through your pantry and freezer to get an idea of what nonperishable items you’re working with. If your inventory is looking a bit bare, add some staple items to your shopping list. Trail mixes, baking mixes, and frozen appetizer bites are life savers.

Bring the coffee shop to your kitchen

Allow visitors to be a barista in your home! Create a self-serve coffee bar next to the coffee maker with creamer, sugar and Chinet Comfort® cups. These cups are easy to take on the go, and their double-layer insulation keeps drinks hot. Plus, the limited-time holiday design is merry and bright on a snowy day.

Jingle all the way

Let us be your DJ in a pinch. We have curated a playlist that all your guests are sure to enjoy. Just press play, and you will have jingle jams for over 2 hours!

Create a game night

With this step-by-step guide, players of all ages will enjoy a night of unforgettable fun. You may even have many of the items already in your home!

Stay stocked up

Focus on creating memories, not dishes. Chinet Crystal® products help serve meals for a crowd in a pinch. This ready-to-serve collection is completely coordinated so you can achieve a classy look with zero fuss. Keep plates, cups and utensils stored in the pantry so you’re always ready to entertain.
