Do you get overwhelmed with the idea of entertaining people at your home? Hosting does not have to be stressful. The key is careful planning. Here are some tips for easy entertaining. A great start is establishing the basics.
Step One – Have a Plan
What is the date & number of guests? What type of party? Sit down meal, buffet, appetizers, or cocktails? Propose a menu, including beverages. Write out your grocery list, beverage list and any decorations you may want.
Step Two – Don’t Do Dishes (Unless you have to) These days, disposable dinnerware can be sturdy and elegant.
Step Three – Keep it Simple You can show off one dish, keep the rest simple. Make one thing that requires a lot of attention. Use your simple recipes for the rest. Be inventive with your food choices to limit costs.
The most important thing is that you and your guests have meaningful time together.
