Adventures in Everyday Entertaining
The last thing you want to be doing an hour before your guests arrive is figuring out what serving dishes you have and which one the mashed potatoes will fit in! A couple days before your gathering, write post-its of each dish you will be serving. Stick the post-it of the food onto the serving dish that you’ll be using for that recipe. This gives you a bit of time to plan out what will work best for each item on your menu.
By doing a little pre-planning before hand, you’ll be cutting down on your stress the day of the gathering. Plus, If you are lucky enough to have helpers (spouse, children, family, friend) that are assisting you in the final preparation before the guests arrive, they already have a map of where the food goes!!
