3. A glam holiday table will instantly elevate your entertaining

Nothing makes us more excited for the holidays than perfect Christmas table decor, and that starts with putting together cozy dining room furniture. Whether it's a massive Christmas dinner with the entire family or a few friends over for a game night, an artfully planned tablescape will elevate the whole affair.

4. Cute cookware makes meals 10x better

Le Creuset cookware is the ultimate in stylish and functional pieces for the kitchen. This season, take your holiday entertaining up a notch by ensuring that even the cookware is fabulous. Although Le Creuset pans come at a higher cost than some other cookware, experts say it's worth the price

5. Make guests comfy with extra blankets
