JaM Cellars Holiday Hosting Hacks

Decking the halls, trimming the tree, and spending time with family and friends is what the holidays are all about — BUT they’re also a ton of work. Spend less time prepping for company and cooking in the kitchen, and more time sipping and socializing with loved ones. Check out these JaM Cellars approved holiday hosting hacks!

Make ahead meals 

Welcoming guests? Have breakfast prepped and ready to go the next morning. After a night of eating, sipping, and making merry, roll out of bed, throw it in the oven, and all you have to do is pop the Butter Bubbles! Check out these deelish make-ahead Brunch recipes:

Cherry Berry Breakfast Custard with Toast Sparkling 

Equal parts cozy and delicious, this festive custard bake is a super easy make ahead meal sure to impress your guests. Mix up all the ingredients in a big casserole dish and store in the fridge overnight. Then pop it into the oven Christmas morning and serve alongside some bubbly Toast Sparkling Mimosas.


Breakfast Casserole and Butter Bubbles

You can make this yummy breakfast up to 24 hours in advance! For our friends who like a savory breakfast, this egg-cellent breakfast casserole is sure to hit the spot. Grab your favorite omelet fixings like veggies, sausage, and cheese, and whip it into your egg mixture. Pour it over some cubed bread and let it chill in the fridge overnight so the flavors can mingle.  Pop the Butter Bubbles, throw it in the oven the next morning and you’re good to go!


Scents of the Season

Make your house smell delish and feel oh-so cozy with a festive simmer pot. Simmer pots are alllllll the rage this holiday season. AND they’re super easy. It’s a simple and all natural way to fill your home with all the holiday vibes. Slice up some oranges, whole cranberries, and get some of your favorite warming scents like clove, anise, and cinnamon and bring to a boil. Let it simmer on the stove while you mingle and jingle! Your guests will LOVE the nostalgic and festive scents filling your home.


Chill Out 

With all the holiday grub in the fridge, you’ll want to make sure you can keep your Butter Bubbles chill. The perfect way to keep the bubbles brisk and add some festive flair — frozen cranberries! Freeze some whole fresh cranberries overnight, and when it’s time to pop the bubbly, plop a few berries in the champagne glass.


Set the Vibe with Festive Tunes

While your guests are making merry, be sure to have holiday classics playing throughout the house. There’s nothing like gathering with your favorite people and singing along to your fav carols. Check out Classic Christmas JaMs on spotify for the best holiday tunes — from the classics to today’s hits!


Stock the pantry

Snacks. Snacks. And More Snacks. If you’re hosting friends and fam for the holidays, make sure you’ve got plenty for them to nosh on while you’re hosting. Our fav? Buttery flaky Club crackers, an assortment of cheeses, and some ButterCans, for easy sipping and snacking so your guests can graze in between festivities.


The Most Wine-derful Time of the Year

The easiest hostess hack—stock up on wine! Grab lush Butter Bubbles for your festive parties, creamy Butter Chardonnay for holiday happy hour, and smooth Butter Cab for fireside movie marathons. Happy hosting!
