Holiday Entertaining Tips from Hickory Farms

The holiday season always brings so much joy and excitement. With the excitement and anticipation that go hand in hand with the holidays, there also comes a great deal of planning. Here at Hickory Farms, we want to help lighten the load by providing quick and easy tips to help the holidays go smoothly.

Tip #1- Keep Chocolate on Hand

Don’t be caught empty handed! We’ve all been in those situations where we have an unexpected guest arrive to a holiday event. By keeping an extra box of the Hickory Farms Signature Chocolate Collection readily available at your home, you’ll never have to worry about being unprepared this season.

Tip #2- Have a Signature Drink

Add a personal touch to your holiday parties by having a signature drink. We love taking the fresh fruit found in the Orchard’s Bounty Gift Basket, and adding it to a Cabernet Sauvignon to create the ultimate festive party beverage. A signature drink can require way less, and can be as easy as adding a candy cane to the rim of a White Russian!


Tip #3-Set the Holiday Tone with Music

Decorating for the holiday season is a tradition so many families possess. Why not make decorating even more fun by creating a playlist of holiday songs that has all of your favorite holiday jingles? Decorating the tree is so much more fun when everyone’s favorite holiday tunes are playing in the background.
