I recently hosted a Christmas dinner party for a few of our favorite people. One of my dear friends made a very flattering compliment that she wished she could throw parties and wanted to know my secrets. I laughed and assured her it's not as difficult a task as it might seem.
The “secret” to throwing a fabulous party is all in the details, the little touches that make the occasion memorable. From setting a stunning table to serving a delicious meal, a great hostess knows how to make her guests feel special. You don't have to be a professional party planner to master the art of entertaining, you just have to know a few of our secrets.
Decide on a theme for your party. Choose something simple or over the top, it's all about your style. Picking a theme and color scheme will give you a place to start planning. Hosting a garden brunch means soft colors, florals and light fare while a Spanish themed dinner calls for dramatic reds and a decadent dishes.
Invest in a nice solid white dining set and serving dishes. A set of white dishes will make entertaining so much easier. White works with everything and looks crisp and clean. It's much easier to replace a piece if something is broken or lost. Purchase enough place settings for eight people if your starting out, twelve if you can afford it.
Glassware will make your guests feel special. Great glassware will make your table look beautiful and finished. A sparkling set of stemware makes a huge impression and elevates the occasion for guests. I love the Libbey Perfect Signature Stemware Collection. I have several sets of wine glasses that have lasted through many many special occasions and toasted many a celebration.
