With the holidays around the corner, it’s time to start planning and prepping for parties and gatherings. From decorations to catering, here is a curated list of Baton Rouge businesses to kickstart your to-do list!



Spruce up your home before guests arrive! Lights, garland, and wreaths set the tone for a festive celebration, and you’re sure to find the perfect decor for your home at one of these local shops.



A guaranteed crowd-pleaser and sure-fire way to keep your guests happy is a delectable spread of fine meats and fancy cheeses. Charcuterie boards are the centerpiece of any tablescape and a fun way to serve appetizers. 



Among the hustle and bustle of the holidays, caterers are the heroes behind the scenes making a magical feast appear easy! With foods you and your guests will love, and more time to spend with those around you, a catered meal is one to remember. 



No feast is ever complete without a treat! Check out these local bakeries for decadent desserts that guests are sure to love and leave wanting more.



Not hosting this year? Don’t show up empty-handed to a gathering! Show the host or hostess some love with a token of gratitude like a hand-crafted gift or a wintery bouquet.


With so much fun and excitement packed into such little time, we hope this list brings some ease to planning the celebrations and festivities you have on your calendar! Keep things holly and jolly, and shop local this holiday season.
