BENTONVILLE, Ark., Dec. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- With holiday entertaining in full swing, Sam's Club opens its doors to the public for a nationwide Holiday Open House. From Friday, Dec. 6 to Sunday, Dec. 8, all are welcome to shop Sam's Club to discover entertaining inspirations and party-perfect tastings at an amazing value.

Open House attendees will receive the 21-page Sam's Club Holiday Party Planning Guide, which features sample menus, recipes and shopping lists to plan any holiday event from a formal dinner for six to an office party for 10, 20, 30 or more guests. The free planning guide is available at Sam's Club Tastes & Tips demonstration booths while supplies last.

"Sam's Club is a valuable partner for the holiday host. Our members rely on us to  simplify party-planning and bring on-trend flavors and excitement to their holiday gatherings," said Charles Redfield, executive vice president of merchandise for Sam's Club. "We welcome our communities to visit a local club and this weekend to experience great quality items at a value worth celebrating."  

The Holiday Open House extends to, where visitors can shop the season's most popular gifts, toys, on-trend housewares and top-brand technology. Visitors shopping can purchase items without fees by entering their email address prior to checkout.

Party Planning Trend #1: The Cheese PlateIn a recent Sam's Club/Harris Interactive survey, 81 percent of adults agreed that cheese plates or platters are a staple at holiday gatherings. Sam's Club presents the finest collection of premium cheeses with various textures, flavor profiles and regions at 30 to 50 percent below the average price of traditional grocery stores.

"A great cheese plate should be diverse in texture, origin and flavor. A simple anecdote for hosts to consider when shopping for premium cheese is 'Something old, something new, something stinky and something blue'," says Jim McGrath, Jr., gourmet deli & cheese director at Sam's Club.  "Colorful trimmings like fruits, honey, sliced baguette, pistachios or Creme Brulee Almonds complement cheeses without overshadowing their bold flavor profiles."
