Greetings dear Blog Followers!
I have been thinking, since I seem to be doing all the writing (talking) here, I want to discover what entertaining or hospitality issues are significant to YOU! I greatly desire this to be a sharing place. I would love to hear what questions you might have, what challenges you face when entertaining, if you have issues planning or finding the things you need for your events, just anything to do with serving people in your home. I'm not an expert, I'm an enthusiast. So, let's have fun with this.
I'd love to hear what clever ideas you have for serving a crowd. So please, don't let me be writing to the wind. Regarding ALL responses, or if you would like to write a guest post for me to feature, I'd be interested in considering that. Please, either send me an email at MakeItDelightful@gmail.com, OR respond in the comments section below.
Here is a tip for beginning entertainers:
When you choose your first set of dishes (I say first, because I assume you will purchase many more in the future!) I would definitely choose a pattern in white. White goes with absolutely everything. You can mix and match napkins, napkin rings, glassware, tablecloths and every other kind of tablescape element easily with white. You can dress it up or dress it down, you can use it for any type of holiday or event. It is always welcome. Patterned dishes limit your choices, but are oh so beautiful!
The same goes for your first flatware pattern, choose sturdy and simple. You can add ornate at anytime. And, I may as well apply that to glassware too. A simple but sturdy clear glass allows the contents to be viewed and anticipated with great delight.
I'll be looking forward to your questions and comments!
