Dinner Party 101


I love to entertain.  Absolutely love it.  I love having people over, deciding what to serve them, setting the table and choosing the appetizer ... truly every single moment of it.  When the weather turns nice in the spring I start thinking about alfresco dinners and porch parties.  When the weather turns cold in the fall my mind immediately goes to pumpkin carvings and crock pot get togethers.  If it involves having people over I am one hundred percent all in.


I have found that a few recipes in my back pocket along with some tricks have helped me so much when it comes to feeling confident about entertaining.  You definitely can't reinvent the wheel every single time, especially when it comes to an event that comes together last minute.  I have learned that keeping certain things on hand helps me in those spur of the moment decisions.  Its the feeling you leave your guests with that truly matters most.


 One tip I can share with you today that I do not entertain without fresh flowers and a candle or two. This is by far the first thing on my to do list every single time.  I have found that fresh flowers and a pleasing scent in your home makes people feel instantly welcome.  For the most part I grab fresh flowers every single week for our home since they are truly something that makes me so happy. Having them in the house helps when I want to have people over.  I just move my arrangement to the area I need it and I am good to go.


I am super excited to tell you I have partnered up with my friends at Steve McKenzies to share my tips and tricks for hosting others in your home.  It doesn't have to be difficult and truly should be something you enjoy with every single step.  We will be talking about everything from serving the first drink to go to recipes for success. Dinner Party 101 takes place on October 7th at 10:00 am. Space is limited so jump over to this link and sign up.

Let's get this party started!!

Happy Friday ...
