‘Tis the season for entertaining, CHS. Looking to impress your dinner guests (with less prep + more merriment)? Enter: Lowes Foods.

Even if you have your very own Cousin Eddie on your hands, Lowes Foods makes it easy to get everything you need to have a stress-free holiday gathering.

Here are six hacks to take advantage of this busy season:

🧑‍🍳 Pick & Prep

Let Lowes Foods do the slicing and dicing for you at the in-store Pick & Prep station. It makes grabbing small amounts of fresh veggies and herbs easy — and you don’t have to worry about any knife mishaps.

⛄ Themed recipes

From Eggnog For Everyone and Winter Sangria to Candy Cane Cookies and Snow Cream (hey, one can wish…) — find festive holiday treats for the family to make together from Lowes Foods’ massive library of recipes.

🧀 Pre-made entertainment trays

Politely decline Aunt Mary’s homemade mayo board and opt for a professionally-arranged party tray or platter, ranging from cheese boards and chicken salad sandwich trays to caprese skewers (yum) and peel-and-eat-shrimp platters. Order online + pickup in-store.

🍸 Holiday cocktails

Listen, you’re busy — a one-stop-shop is the way to go. Knock out the booze run by grabbing holiday beers from the Beer Den and a case of red from the Sunmill Wines section. Pro tip: Get into the spirit(s) by grabbing a beer from the Beer Den to sip *while* you do your holiday shopping.

🚗 Easy pick up

We know you forgot at least one thing on your list (because same). No worries, Lowes Foods To Go has you covered for easy pick up — shop online or through the app and then head to the store for curbside pickup, where the attendant will load your groceries into the car for you (Delivery is also available for an additional fee).

🍰 Don’t forget dessert

It’s not a party without dessert — and no, we’re not talking about that fruit cake your neighbor dropped off (what is in that thing, anyway?). Make the occasion sweeter (and easier on yourself) by pre-ordering a custom cake from The Cakery or picking up a pre-made pecan pie (it’s everyone’s fav for a reason).

Pro tip: Just showing up to the party? Don’t show up empty handed — say thank you to the host by gifting them with a speciality Carolina Gift Box.*
