6. Don’t try to be Martha Stewart. It’s easy to get caught up in the spirit of the holidays with new decorating ideas, fancy dinners and the whim to make all your gifts this year. Be realistic and honest with yourself. Don’t set yourself up for failure. Hire a caterer. Have friends help by having a craft day. Forgo making the gift wreath and give a gift you’ll know they’ll appreciate — a massage from Ohm.
7. Remember the spirit. When it’s all said and done, no one will remember that the turkey was a little dry, that the sweater didn’t fit, or that you were a few minutes late for rehearsal. What do they remember? The precious moments with family and friends.
