2021 CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY PLANNER – Your Comprehensive Christmas Season Planning Tool

I’m so excited to release the new  2021 Christmas Holiday Planner!

When it comes time to begin planning for the Christmas season, I know some women can start feeling tense.  Then there are those gals who glide through the holidays with hors d’oeuvres tucked in their freezers to serve at a moment’s notice.  Wouldn’t it be nice to be her this year?

That’s where my 2021 Christmas Holiday Planner comes to the rescue. 

So, what’s the actual difference between those two types of women?  Having a plan of action and the tools you need to get you to the finish line on Boxing Day morning! 

Today I’m sharing the updated 2021 Christmas Holiday Planner!  You’ll have everything you need to start planning a fabulous holiday season this year. 



When you use a holiday planning tool correctly, it can make a huge difference in how your holiday season plays out.  Chaos or smooth sailing?  It’s all up to you!

When I hung up my apron and retired from professional catering a few years back, I finally got smart.   I decided to employ the same planning and organizational systems I used so successfully as an off-premise caterer, but at home.

Actually, it was a simple process to apply the same kinds of worksheets and planning pages to my personal Christmas season planning process.   And since I’ve always been known as a “lifestyle diva”, they’re always festive or beautiful, depending on what kind of organizational tool I’m creating.

It’s my standard practice when organizing a catered affair, to have a menu planner, prep schedule, prep list and grocery list.  So I knew they’d be a part of my 2021 Christmas Holiday Planner.

christmas breakfast scones and sausage


When deciding on my Christmas Holiday Breakfast menus, I generally try to incorporate recipes that can be done in stages, with most of the prep work done well in advance.  It makes my holiday hostess duties a little less hectic, and lets me enjoy the holiday just as much as my guests and family.

A breakfast bread would be perfect and since I’m a scone lover, it was an easy decision. These Orange Date Scones are laced with dried fruit and sweet orange marmalade.  They’re especially festive when served with Whipped Orange Fleur de Sel Butter.



  • Top your savory Apple Sage Sausage with Caramelized Onion Cream Sauce with GIANT BUTTERY-GARLIC CROUTONS
  • Serve 2 Apple Sage Sausage Patties draped with the dreamy onion sauce inside a PUFF PASTRY BOX.  Place it’s lid atop, and serve this elegant dish garnished with fresh sage leaves.
  • Make THICK-SLICED GARLIC TOASTS and top with a few Apple Sage Sausage Patties and smother it all with Caramelized Onion Cream Sauce!


This is a fabulous recipe to add to your Christmas Holiday Breakfast menu!  It’s incredibly versatile, and all the components can be prepared ahead of time to allow you to assemble the dish Christmas morning.

The basis of this delicious recipe is my Apple Sage Breakfast Sausage PattiesThese savory pork sausages are studded with tart granny smith apples, red bell pepper and sweet Vidalia onions.

For Christmas, I left some of the green apple peel on to give the patties some “red and green” specks.  It really gives them a festive, holiday feel.  I add plenty of fresh sage to complement the pork and apples, melding them into a luxurious holiday breakfast treat. 

Then I decided to make them extra festive by adorning them with a silky Caramelized Onion Cream Sauce that’s absolutely divine.  But, how to serve them?  I’ve given you three holiday-worthy presentation ideas for your Christmas breakfast menu too.

Since we had leftovers, on Christmas we had puff pastry, and for Boxing Day, thick slabs of garlic toast!
