Holiday Entertaining and $100 CSN Giveaway

Holidays are the time of year for making our home look festive for entertaining, hosting dinners and get-togethers for gift exchanges and celebrating.  Do you host holiday dinner parties for family and friends?  Where do you seat everyone?  Do you utilize drop leaf tables, card tables, the kitchen island, the livingroom? Do you serve buffet or sit-down style?  
We host dinner buffet style when we entertain because our family consists of 25+ guests. Our table normally seats 8 but we can squeeze in 10.  Sometimes teens will eat in the family room together (which I’m sure they prefer), a couple will take the kitchen bar stools or guests will take turns or carry a  plate to the living room.  It always seems to work out – thankfully!

What’s your entertaining strategy?

How would you like a $100 CSN gift code to prepare for the holidays?  No?  Okay…I’ll take it.  🙂  Just kidding!  I’m going to give 1 lucky DIY Show Off reader the chance to win.  I love my blog buddies – you’re always so supportive and encouraging.  I love reading your comments, seeing your links in my parties and showing off your DIY projects so this giveaway is my ‘thank you’ for being the best! ($100 gift code does not cover shipping costs but can be spent on ANY product from ANY of the 200+ CSN stores.)

How to enter:

One (1) separate entry for each of the following (leave an individual comment for each):

Entry #1 Just leave a comment.  If you want, tell me your favorite thing about the holidays.
Entry #2 Be a follower or subscribe.  Leave a comment telling me you do.
Entry #3 Share this giveaway with your friends and readers via blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc.  Comment how you spread the word.
Entry #4 Make a new friend:  Visit the person who commented before you and if they have a blog, what was their latest post about? Tell them Roeshel says “hi”!
Bonus Entry (#5) – If you did Entry #4 AND you saw this giveaway shared, come back and comment THAT blog name.  Or if you were directed to the giveaway from someone announcing it, share who/where that was. You both will be added to the entries at the end of the giveaway for another chance to win. 

Remember to leave me your email address if I can’t contact you via your blog.  Open to US residents only.  Giveaway starts now and ends Tuesday, November 22nd at midnight EST.  Winner will be announced shortly thereafter! 

Remember to leave a comment for each entry.  Comments are numbered and putting 5 entries in one comment will only count for one (1) entry. I will delete duplicate comments.  Because of spam comments, I approve each so it may take me a few minutes/etc. to approve your comment before it is seen.

Pop back over to see if anyone had something to say about visiting your blog during the giveaway – you might have more entries! 🙂

Good luck!
