Secrets To Successful Entertaining



Secrets To Successful Entertaining.  People will forget what they ate, People will forget what they drank, But people will never forget how you made them feel. – our spin on Maya Angelou’s famous quote

We believe a special party experience is achieved when people simply feel good, relaxed and open to connecting with others. Today we’re sharing our secret Party Bluprints recipe for gifting your guests a special and memorable experience.

1. Entertain not to impress, but to address, and enjoy your guests. Entertaining in your home is an opportunity to treat your friends and family to a special and personal experience – treat it as such.

2. Remember, there will be nothing more beautiful at your party than the people.

3. Devise a plan to manage your time and tasks so you’re not overwhelmed or unprepared for your guests. If you plan carefully you can prepare everything ahead of time and be a guest at your own party.

4. Follow our 5 “Good Sense” Tips below:  We believe the most effective (and fun) way to approach entertaining is to start with a plan to stimulate the five senses. Pay attention to all the elements of your party and make sure they enhance, not detract, each one (consider it a symphony for the senses): the food, the tablescape, the music, the lighting, etc. If you achieve the right balance, your guests’ senses will be satisfied resulting in relaxed and happy guests and the perfect party environment!
