When we heard that the brothers Scott (that's Drew and Jonathan Scott of Property Brothers fame) were hosting a design cruise called Sailing with the Scotts, we couldn't help but think of another serious hosting job the brothers willingly tackle this time of year: holiday hosting and entertaining. So after a week of running our Sailing with the Scotts contest, we took to Twitter so fans of Drew and Jonathan could pick their brains - and also find out which lucky entrant will be cruising with the handsome brothers in 2015.
Topics of conversation included holiday movies, hostess gifts and festive decor, and we gleaned so many nuggets of wisdom from our special guests that we had to share!
Check out our list of holiday entertaining tips and fun stories below, in the form of tweets!
