Since the holidays are often hectic and filled with obligations, make sure that you get the word out and have your guests save the date as soon as possible. You should invite your guests about a month in advance.
Go with The Buffet
Do yourself a favor - go with a nice buffet style meal, especially if you are planning to serve dinner. You will be able to keep your dishes warm as your guests serve themselves from your delicious line-up. Certainly, that image in your mind of all your guests seated and waiting patiently for an elegantly clad server to grace their presence with a full plate is a nice one, but your guests will appreciate a buffet just as much. In fact, many prefer buffet style since it gives them the ability to pick and choose their food items and amounts.
