Get Inspired for Holiday Entertaining Season!

Get inspired this holiday season! Tips + ideas from Pizzazzerie.com #GetInspired

How do you get inspired for the holiday season? I hope one of the ways is finding fabulous entertaining ideas and recipes here on Pizzazzerie ;) For me, I love to get inspired for fun gift wrapping ideas, new recipes, and holiday tablescapes by visiting my fellow blogging friends, browsing Pinterest, checking out my fave magazines online, and of course – turning up the Christmas songs! I have to admit that I’m an online junkie. So when Dell reached out to partner on sharing the new Dell Venue 8 3000 Series Tablet with you guys, I was thrilled!

FIND TIME TO GET INSPIRED EVERY DAY!

With baby in tow, I’m often out and about with little time to head home to hop on my computer. This tablet fits so easily into my purse (it weighs almost nothing) so I can hop on, check email, my shopping lists (no more losing my grocery store shopping post-its), and my husband checks football scores on it – win/win! It’s also great for longer car drives during the holidays so you can catch up on your favorite shows, listen to your favorite music, and enjoy the season!

Whenever I’m in the kitchen making a recipe or crafting up a project I saw online, I love having the tablet there to scroll through so I don’t miss a step! Like these peppermint cupcake stands? It’s one of my favorite holiday DIYs and it’s easy to follow along from anywhere!

MAKE HOLIDAY ENTERTAINING
SEASON A LOT EASIER

Especially with the busy holiday baking season (I love giving sweet treats to friends and neighbors over the season), the tablet will be getting lots of use! Not only will it help navigating the busy holiday season a lot simpler, but it’s also a fabulous gift idea!

Another thing I love about the tablet is the camera! Taking pictures and sending them to family is so important with a little one that is growing up so.darn.fast so I’m always trying to capture every cute little moment. The tablet is always nearby and the pictures are great. I love the HD quality. Life just got a lot easier, not to mention the hectic entertaining season! Cozying up on the couch to scroll Pinterest (I’ll admit it, I’m a Pinterest junkie) just got a lot more fun!
