Last-Minute Holiday Entertaining Ideas From CVS

Christmas is THIS FRIDAY, friends. How is that even possible?

I am finding myself scrambling around, trying to complete my gift shopping and preparing for guests. I don’t always work in last-minute mode, but this week that is exactly what I’ll be doing. I’m sure I’m not alone in this panic, either.

Today I am sharing some easy last-minute entertaining ideas that I’ll be using for my guests this week. The best part is that all of the items I am using are from CVS! Yes, anyone can put this set-up together after a quick stop at CVS/pharmacy. Easy peasy!

For the munchies, I purchased several Gold Emblem and Gold Emblem Abound – pretzels, dried fruits, cookies – as well as candy canes and hot cocoa in festive mugs.

For table decor I found a cute silver reindeer, snowflake lights and a light marquee “NOEL” sign. Lastly, I purchased some gift ribbon and holiday bags, too.

The first thing I did to set up the table was hang gift ribbon from the chandelier. It’s a easy way to give the scene some height and flair!

Next, I plopped the reindeer and snowflake lights right in the middle of the table, added two serving trays full of the snacks, placed the candy canes and pieces of ribbon all about, made hot cocoa with candy canes and then hung the sign on the wall.
