When my friends called to see if they could stop by on Saturday to share some good news, I immediately said, “YES!”
Their news was so exciting I quickly called a few other friends and family members to share in all the excitement.
The idea of entertaining might sound super stressful to you, especially if it’s something last minute but there’s a trick to pulling it off easily and effortlessly.
Before you break out in a panic, I want to share a few of my must have pieces to create a memorable, FUN, get together. When you have a few key pieces ready to go at home, you can quickly pull them out at a moment’s notice and rely on them to host in style.
Watch the video to see a few key pieces you should have at home, to up-level your entertaining experience!
1.Veuve Clicquot – MUST have for any big moment!
2.Champagne Flutes – I use all these them all the time!
3.Chafing Dishes – invest in a set, you will LOVE these them
4.Trays to spread out appetizers (at least 3 per party)
5.An assortment of vases – Look for varied size openings so it looks like the florist just dropped off a curated set of arrangements
6.Experiences – plan a few fun things to do to keep your guests entertained like sharing pics from a trip or even more fun karoke 😉 Nowadays you don’t even need a fancy karoke system. Every song is now available on YouTube and it is fun and easy to use!
