In no time, we’ll be putting on our turkey hats and strutting into the best neighborhood parties. What about you? Will you be gobbling up the holiday hospitality? If so, don’t go to your loved ones’ events empty-handed. Bring deli meats. Otherwise, you’re apt to feel like Miles Standish at a medieval joust, woefully unprepared. Here’s how to show up at any local event looking like a standup pilgrim:

Buy a small gift for the host and hostess, like our Deli Direct® Thanksgiving Bucket. It has a little something they can enjoy after all the guests go home but don’t stop there. Make an antipasto or charcuterie board with our deli meats and cheeses that everyone can share before dinner. Every antipasto platter or charcuterie board, regardless of size, would look fantastic with the following:

  • Hard and Soft Cheeses (Mild to Strong)
  • Dry Cured Sausages and Crusty Breads
  • Salted Nuts and Olives
  • Assorted Olives (Stuffed and Natural)
  • Shaved Meats and Condiments
  • Fatback and Pate or Terrine
  • Pickled Delights and Sweet Chutneys
  • Dried Fruits and Jams
  • Crunchy Offerings (e.g. Chubby Cheeks)

If you’re unsure of how much of each to place on to the board or platter, don’t worry. Party planning experts widely agree that three ounces of each should suffice for most November shindigs. After all, most people will pick at the platters and save their appetites for the main course. And if there are deli meats leftover, simply leave them behind for your host or hostess.

Of course you could take the novel approach towards holiday platters by skipping the meats and cheeses altogether. For example, you could grab a bunch of A Spice Above Dip Mixes and make a sweets platter complete with bite-sized baked goods. We’re sure that everyone would love noshing on them after dinner, especially if coffee is being served. To learn more and spread the bounty around town, please contact Deli Direct® today.
