Sure, putting on Thanksgiving for 40 can be stressful, but not all holiday entertaining has to be a huge production. Martha Stewart Living shares perfectly paired, easy-to-make drinks and bites for three different seasonal soirees.
For a holiday open house (or any party where you'll have a crowd and need snacks that stand up to sitting out), make this pretty cranberry orange punch, and roll out store-bought puff pastry with various different homemade toppings. The sage and orange looks particularly festive!
