The Perfect Hostess!

Happy Monday, everyone!

Today I thought I’d talk about how to be the perfect hostess! Throwing a party can be both stressful & time-consuming. RSVP’s must be sent out, color scheme chosen, food made, tables set, & numerous other duties.

It is best to allow yourself plenty of time to make all these decisions. If you are throwing a rather large party (50-100 people), I think about 2-3 months allows you enough time to plan accordingly.

Once a color scheme is chosen (I picked gold & white), you can go out & purchase items that add elegance. I find that Marshalls & HomeGoods has the best selection when it comes to glassware, décor, & party items.

Food is where you can get really creative & fancy. Cheese plates with wine are a must! Petite, colorful hors d’oeuvres are perfect finger foods for small talk & allows your guests to mingle. Rather than a four-course meal, offer finger sandwiches. For dessert, small cakes, cookies, & coffee are the perfect way to end the night!

Here are a few more fabulous tips!

  1. NIce post!!! The other thing about the food–do as much prep work beforehand as possible. There are tons of food items that you can prep ahead and throw in the freezer! In fact, there are times–especially before Thanksgiving and Christmas, when I use my free time to make cookie dough or appetizers ahead of time, pop them in the freezer, then when entertainment time rolls along, I can just pop them in the oven. A stress-free hostess makes for a successful party!

  2. Great post! Parties can be so stressful but this definitely helps put a time line on things and ideas where I can pick up cute party necessities! ❤
