It’s that time of year! That time that you have unexpected guests that pop over during the holidays and have a tendency to give very little notice of their arrival. NOT that you don’t want to see them. I love entertaining as much as the next girl! But I do like to be prepared.

Today I’m going to show you how I stay prepared for those popover visits so that I can enjoy my friends and family and not stress, thanks to SOLO. With SOLO, I am Up for Anything!

With the cooler temperatures, I love to whip up a quick Hot Cocoa & Sweets Bar when I hear that loved ones are on their way. The items I need to put it together are often things I already have on hand, including the SOLO products for serving.

The first thing to do is pick out your favorite sweet treat recipes. For me, I love to keep my favorite boxed mixes in the pantry for just such an occasion. Some brownies, cookies, and our favorite Biscotti and we are all set for the food! SOLO Squared plastic plates are perfect for serving because of their large size.

To make the hot cocoa easy to put together I put all of the cocoa mix in a SOLO Squared plastic cup. I also put other hot chocolate ingredients into more SOLO Squared cups so they are easy to see and use. I love the SOLO Squared cups because the base is actually squared making them less likely to get turned over which is perfect for serving! A pitcher of hot water for the cocoa seals the deal.

I put all of the cocoa ingredients on one of the SOLO Squared plastic plates and used a chalk pen to write directly on the plate what everything is. It’s fun and festive and the pens work great on the plastic!

Another must for my gatherings? The My SOLO Cup. These cups are super innovative. They have a sticker label that peels up to reveal a scratchable surface so your guests can write their names right on the cup! No more leaving out markers for name writing and having them disappear with the kids.

The next time your reach for serveware for your get togethers, be sure to reach for SOLO. It looks great, holds a ton, and makes clean up a breeze. ALL things to take into account when you have a gathering! And it will help keep you Up for Anything!

But, don’t forget, ‘Not Every Cup is a SOLO Cup’ because only SOLO is Squared. Beside the SOLO Clear cups, Ultra cups, and ‘It’s My SOLO’ cups, you can also find other SOLO products in papper, heavy duty and premium strength. Check out these SOLO® Up for Anything videos for more of what SOLO can do (the Super Mom video is my favorite!).

You can keep up with all of your favorite products on SOLO’s Facebook page and SOLO’s Pinterest page.

This is such a great idea - I love the Hot Cocoa Bar! Those cups are genius too - I thought they were a chalkboard label - I love that you don't need a pen or anything for them. I'm definitely picking up some of those for the holidays!
