It’s that time of year again where our calendars start getting booked with holiday parties and hosting parties. I’m already dreaming about the menu for our Martini and Mistletoe party in December!
Over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing 5 Entertaining Tips that will include everything from how to create a memorable experience to planning a meal so everything comes out at the same time. I’ll share recipes, products, and tools that will help you be the brightest star in your entertaining circle this season!
Entertaining Tips for the Holidays
“It’s The Experience That Counts!”
My great passion is about creating memorable experiences for my family and friends. To me, it’s more than just great food, or a beautiful table. It’s about the feeling my family and friends have during and after our gatherings, what they remember and talk about long after they’ve gone home. It’s the combination of music, sharing of conversation, great food, and a sense of caring that you demonstrate. It’s the little things that may seem effortless to you, but are a big deal to your guests!
Holiday Music for Creating Memorable Experiences:
Music is an important part of setting the vibe and ambiance for your party and family gatherings. Music provides a subconcscious cue that this is going to be a good time. When the guests walk through your door and hear the tunes and start bobbing their heads, you’re on your way to having a great party!
Thanksgiving is all about traditions so I’ve found my guests really enjoy hearing the classics like Nat King Cole (the Very Best of Nat King Cole is my personal favorite), Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, and of course, Bing Crosby. Our Thanksgiving weekend always includes watching White Christmas with Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney. We know all the lines, and sing along while sipping Egg Nog or a glass of wine. Let the holidays beging!
My good friend Pam Atherton, radio talk show host of A Closer Look with Pam Atherton, invited me to be on her 5 Minute Shot program. It was so much fun to spend time with Pam, she is amazing and has interviewed so many interesting experts. I hope you check it out at: http://www.acloserlookradio.com/
