Now that your new baby has arrived, you may be getting inundated with invitations. It’s only natural: Everyone wants to meet your little one, and gather together to celebrate the holidays with the newest family member.

But before you go about trying to be in two places at once, take a step back and take a breath. All these people who want to see you and your little one will — maybe just not where they were expecting.

Get them to your place!

Even if your house is a little crowded, you can still have a lot of fun, and everyone should be satisfied by the end of the night. With some smart preparation and a few tricks, you can ensure that even your baby has a holiday to remember.

Planning Ahead
Before you even start planning a meal, get a head count of who you can expect. And if you don’t have a table at which everyone can sit, who says you can't extend the eating area to another room?

Invite everyone that would be at the other gatherings and explain why you're holding the event at your house this year. If you're truthful and tell one and all that you'd still love to see them but your little one needs more attention than you could give at someone's home during a big family dinner, they'll understand.

Once you get your guest list ready, plan a menu that you can take care of quickly. Choose a main course that cooks for a long time on its own (a slow-cooker dish or something that can be in the oven for a while is key), and then ask your guests to bring side dishes, appetizers, salads, or dessert. Drinks are always welcome, too. And if other children are attending, ask a parent to bring kid drinks.
