Let’s Put the Celebration back into Holiday Parties
Hosting a holiday party can be extremely stressful. To begin with very few families can agree on what the ideal holiday meal is. And so, you, as the host are left with either pulling rank or cooking several meals.
So now, you’re planning roast beef for Uncle Bob, turkey for Aunt Sue, and a vegan meal for your cousin Matt’s new girlfriend (who quite frankly you don’t even like).
But that’s not all, you have your entire house to prepare which includes cleaning, decorating, cooking the meal, serving the guest and then of course cleaning it all up.
At the end of the night, you are exhausted! And unfortunately realize that all of the planning left you with very little time to spend the time with the family and friends that you’ve invited.
So, let me ask you, what are the holidays truly about? Is it about you working day and night ? Or is it about taking the time to connect, share stories and a bit of good cheer?
We believe that it’s about taking the time to destress, relax and connect with the ones that you love.
So how do you do that?
This holiday, we are asking you to pull in the reigns- and have your family gathering at the Market Buffet.
Why a buffet you ask? Because when you choose a buffet you get all your guests’ meal requests in one place. But that’s not all, eating at a buffet is perfect for a variety of holiday guests, including these perennial favourites.
When Penny walks into your home, you need to take a deep breath and prepare yourself for her barrage of questions and instructions. Penny is there to instruct you on how to cook the food for her dietary needs. Basically Penny, will never be happy. No matter how much you try to make the meal exactly like she requested last year, this year her dietary needs will be different.
Buffets are perfect for people like Penny because she can pick and choose exactly the type of food that meets her meal plan of the week. And the staff at Market Buffet, is more than happy to answer all of Penny’s questions.
Max is the boisterous holiday clown, and wow, can he eat! You find your guests scrambling to fill their plates before Max can dive into round three. Dealing with Max’s insatiable appetite can be exhausting, let alone costly.
Market Buffet was made for people like Max. With all you can eat options, Max can return as many times as he wants, and you no longer have to worry about stocking enough food for his monstrous appetite.
Even though you told Lucy the party was an hour before the actual start time, she still arrives two hours late. So, do you serve all your other prompt guests appetizers until Lucy arrives or do you just go ahead and start the main course?
Here is the beauty of buffets, your prompt family members can start eating when they arrive, and whenever lovely Lucy makes herself present, she will have a warm meal waiting for her!
The holiday season should be a time of celebration, good food and amazing conversations. It should be a time where we build memories, not stress about party planning. So this year, let’s make your holiday season a little bit easier: be a part of the celebration by hosting your holiday meal at the Market Buffet.
