Secret to holiday entertaining without the cleanup

AOL partnered with Huhtamaki Inc. for the Chinet® brand to create this post! Enjoy!

The holidays are a special time for coming together with the ones you love most. And while it's easy to find joy in the present opening and cookie swapping, the only downer about holiday entertaining comes at the end: the dreaded cleanup. Consider this secret our gift to you: The Chinet® Cut Crystal® line keeps your table looking gorgeous and nearly eliminates dish duty.

We asked bloggers from the Lifestyle Collective to show us how they integrate the line into their holiday entertaining. They were thrilled to be able to spend more time with family and friends and less at their kitchen sink.
