Never underestimate the power of a good cheese and meat platter to kick off a classy celebration. Use a mix of hard and soft cheeses, like St. Andre Triple Crème Brie, Capricorn Goat Cheese, and Rembrandt Aged Gouda. Accompany the cheeses with good charcuterie, such as Del Duca Prosciutto or Daniele Sliced Italian Salami.

Step up your hors d’oeuvres game by wrapping dried dates with Wright’s Honey Bourbon Bacon for a new take on Bacon Wrapped Dates. Quick appetizers that don’t take time in the kitchen can also be lifesavers. Items like Sams Choice Spanakopita can be made in a snap and have the right mix of elegant and exotic to finish off an appetizer course.

Main Course

There’s no need to stress over the entree with easy products such as Sams Choice Ham or Cargill HoneySuckle White Cajun Turkey — no brining, marinating, or long roasting is required to serve a feast worthy of a Norman Rockwell painting. Serve it with a salad, simple roast potatoes, sautéed spinach, and a Bake at Home Marketside Baguette (found in the Walmart bakery department) that has all the flavor of homemade bread without the effort.

And of course the main meal wouldn’t be complete without a nice bottle of wine. For those who are looking for both quality and value, go for labels like Robert Mondavi Private Selection.
