With the arrival of the holiday season comes the impending arrival of not-so-helpful house guests, a never-ending menu of meals to cook and gatherings to prepare for, and a laundry list of at-home to-dos (which just so happens to include the laundry). Wouldn’t it be nice to have one place to go this time of year to help you navigate the season and all that goes with it? That’s where Giada De Laurentiis‘ new show, Giada’s Holiday Handbook, comes in.
Beginning Sunday, Nov. 8 at 11a|10c, Giada’s new series will show fans just how doable — and enjoyable — holiday festivities can be, from hosting classic holiday open houses and the all-important turkey day feast to throwing cocktail soirees, gingerbread-making parties and, of course, the ultimate Christmas dinner. On each episode of Giada’s Holiday Handbook, she’ll introduce not only a roster of crowd-pleasing recipes, but also how-tos for making themed party favors for guests. With her tips on how to execute the menu, plus good-to-know ideas for music and decor pairings, you’ll have everything you need to enjoy the most-wonderful time of the year.
