You guys know (some of you may not,) that I don’t believe in fancy when it comes to entertaining. I only believe in fabulous. Beautiful, delicious, and easy to pull of is the only way I roll. As the warm weather approaches I am getting so excited about entertaining, We love to have people over. We love to fire up the grill, crank up the tunes, and have cold drinks in our backyard. If you love to entertain like we do, or if you want to entertain more, here are some tips for fabulous entertaining on a whim, whether formal dinner parties are your style, or casual dining al fresco. If you have guests surprise you coming in from out of town, or even if you want to invite over some friends at the last minute, you will always be prepared to throw a fantastic gathering.
2. Have a cute apron. – Yes! A cute apron! While you’re pulling everything together, your apron should be just as fabulous as the outfit under it. Sometimes mine is more fabulous. I love a cute neckline, and the more ruffles the better! You won’t be rushing to get set up because you have to get “dressed.” You’re already cute and ready to party.
3. Have a good playlist. – Actually you need a few. Nothing gets a party going like good music, and technology is so great that now a good playlist isn’t more than a mobile app away.
4. Put it on a RITZ ®! – Whether you are going for a sweet or savory appetizer, RITZ ® are the way to go. You can top them however you want, with ingredients that you already have on hand. That’s an instant appetizer! Check out your local Walmart on the snack aisle. (That’s where I picked up mine.) They are available in RITZ® Roasted Vegetable, RITZ® Bacon RITZ® Bits Peanut Butter, RITZ® Garlic Butter, and RITZ® Honey Wheat (and that’s not all). Between all of those flavors, you’re sure to find something your guests will love!
5. Know how to work what you have. – One of the main keys to successful impromptu entertaining, is not having to leave your house to prepare. You should know how to make at least one appetizer, entree, dessert, and drink from what your family always keeps in the house anyway. These delicious appetizer bites were made with leftover rotisserie chicken , and lunch fixings that we already had.
