Celebrate the Holidays with BJ’s Wholesale Club #BJsHoliday2013

Hopefully, the holidays don’t have you all stressed out.  There is a lot to do Mushies, but if you have BJ’s Wholesale Club in your area, you can put your holiday festivities on auto pilot from the entertaining to cooking.

I don’t usually cook huge meals because we usually go to my mom’s house for that, but I do like to have a holiday mixer with a few friends to sip on some wine and chat.

I have this wonderful cheese tray that I received at a BJ’s Holiday blogger event recently that is perfect to serve catering-quality appetizers, like my favorite cheeses.

BJ’s wants your holiday to be festive and delicious and has a few trends and tips to make your holiday event a success.

 

Small Plates Trend

“Small Plate” parties, which have become the new way to entertain, provide party goers the chance to sample a variety of hot and cold appetizers.  This feast of appetizers is convenient too, since BJ’s provides numerous options for catering-quality easy heat-and-serve foods so hosts can mingle with guests and enjoy the party. Select a variety of heat-and-serve appetizers, seafood and vegetables so there’s something for everyone.

Delectable Desserts Party

Set your party table with beautiful desserts and pastries that punctuate the holidays.  BJ’s bakery products are as delicious as they are beautiful and make a celebratory statement when displayed for your guests.

Sophisticated and social, holiday cheese parties are always in style. BJ’s offers a wide selection of cheeses, including imported specialty, domestic and its exclusive Wellsley Farms European Collection found in BJ’s cheese kiosk.

BJ’s is a great place to shop and save, and they have a free 60-day trial membership so that you can shop, save, and get ready for a great holiday affair.

Disclosure: I received promotional items in exchange for this post, however all opinions expressed are my own.

I am a particularly picky eater (I know, I know- trying to make sure my kids aren't the same way!). But, as a result, there is nothing I enjoy more as a party guest than small plates because there is something for everyone. My husband enjoys almost everything, so he likes the idea of being able to try a little bit of everything, whether we're guests or hosts. The fact that BJs Wholesale offers catering-quality appetizers at great prices makes it such a great place to shop for your holiday entertaining!

I'm the person at the restaurant who would rather order 6 appetizers than a meal because I just want to try everything. So you can imagine how much I love these small plate parties and how easy they can be with services like BJ's wholesale club.

We do not have a BJ's nearby, but I have visited before. What a great way to save on essentials as well as holiday decor!

I love the idea of a "small plates" party. I end up attending so many big holiday dinners this time of year that I would find such an event to be kind of refreshing; I think it is definitely possible to go into "food overload" this time of year! And a party would be even better if I knew the hosts didn't have to slave over pots and pans in the kitchen for days. :)

This is definitely the time of year when BJ's makes total sense. Buying enough for parties is no joke. I appreciate the in-bulk savings!

I like BJ's. They closed the one near my home, but we were members too! They had great deals and a huge selection! Sorry to see them go!

We are lucky enough to have a BJ's Wholesale Club right in our neighborhood! It makes buying party apps and platters really convenient!

Oh, how I love cheese. I was impressed with the selection at BJs... and I'm actually going to shop there this week to take advantage of the frozen appetizers!
