TIS THE SEASON

DSC_0382

Tis the season for get togethers small & big. I do like a big gathering of friends, but I there is something about entertaining a small group of 4 people. The conversations are more intimate, the laughs are louder and the relationships end up richer. Not to mention it is so much easier to cook for a smaller group.

When entertaining a small (or large group) I like to always have a cocktail ready and a little something to nosh on while the hot foods finish. It’s an easy way to get the conversation flowing and gives everyone something to do while you (the hostess) is still busy with all of the other little details.

To create the festive setup I headed to Marshalls where I was able to find everything I needed. Including the Joy champagne flutes that inspired me to make a special holiday cocktail to greet guests with. recipe here. Another thing to remember when holding a get together is to make everything as easy & comfortable for your guests as possible. If I am serving red wine I like to put out the wines I have selected for the evening right next to the wine glasses and wine opener (if your are serving white wine, use a beverage bin and fill with ice). This will make your guest comfortable enough to just open the next bottle without having to ask. I also like the idea of putting out all of the tools necessary next to the beverages, a wine opener or bottle opener for beer. I knew I was serving wine so I was really happy when this Rabbit electric wine opener showed up at my door.

Tell me, do you have any entertaining tips that help the party keep flowing?
