Giveaway: Frito-Lay "Party in a Pinch" Gift Basket Prize Pack [CLOSED]

Whether you are throwing a holiday get-together or a tailgating party, Frito-Lay offers a vast variety of better-for-you snack foods that are sure to be people pleasers. Keeping these snacks on hand will make any party less stressful. They are also an easy choice if you need something to bring to a party as your contribution.

Here are some tips for throwing a successful Holiday party provided by Frito-Lay:

Ambiance is everything – Keep a playlist of festive music easily accessible or stock the stereo with CDs so it’s ready at the push of a button…literally. Add a few scented candles and presto…instant ambiance!

Let guests add their touch – Keep a box of ornaments on hand and ask your guests to add one to the tree.

No clean-up necessary – Stock-up on a supply of holiday-colored paper plates, napkins and utensils to lessen post-party clean-up. And if the house is tidy before you head out for the day, there’s no scrambling once they arrive!

Stock the pantry – Have some “better for you” Frito-Lay products on hand to lessen the stress of “what to fix?” and allow for more time to visit with your guests. Frito-Lay’s Tostitos Scoops or Baked! Scoops -- with a delicious dip -- are true crowd-pleasers. Serve on a festive platter or dish and presto! …festive snacks ready to share!

Entertain with ease – Always have several fun board games accessible to keep guests entertained. And a few kid-friendly movies or simple crafts will keep the little ones busy while the adults socialize.
