Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
Happy November everyone! For many of us, we are now entering a countdown to house guests, dinner parties, host and guest gifts, etc. It is time to put our hospitality hats on!!
The first thing up for our household is planning our ‘Thankful with Friends’ dinner party. The weekend before Thanksgiving we will be hosting a sit-down dinner for some friends to do an early celebration of the holiday. Over the next two weeks, I will be covering a variety of tips and examples of wonderful ways to entertain in your home this season– on a budget you can afford!
The first thing you need is a game plan! Make a checklist of things that need to be thought about and done prior to the gathering. Determine deadlines based on what works for you and your situation. But make sure to set them — otherwise things have a way of slipping through the cracks! Here are some things to be thinking about. Different types of entertaining will rank some of these as more important than others.
