The whole point of hosting a dinner party, or entertaining in general, is to have fun. If you are stressed when entertaining, trust me, so is everyone else. In February 2013, I wrote the following post on entertaining……
How you invite your guests & who you invite help set the tone.
Planning an event is as important as the event itself.
Prepare a seasonal meal you want to prepare.
Everyone loves a pretty table.
Expect something will go wrong & be OK with it.
Music makes a memorable evening.
Let guests participate.
There is nothing better than a long cocktail hour.
These 10 entertaining pearls have become my mantra over the years. I live by these 10 entertaining pearls…whether I am having a dinner party for 6…a cocktail party for 100…a luncheon for 12…or a kids’ birthday party…these 10 entertaining pearls guide me when planning and preparing for an event. With these 10 pearls, entertaining becomes more creative, easier & the best of all, fun…because you should have fun at your own party shouldn’t you? So relax, have fun…
…make everyday a celebration……
…because life’s too short not to have fun…so celebrate by entertaining! Cheers!
