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!
