Summer Entertaining Guide


There is nothing more enjoyable than being able to dine al fresco with friends and family on a beautiful summer day or evening.

You can create memorable occasions with a bit of planning ahead.  I have what I call my party basket(s) where I keep everything I will need to throw an impromptu outdoor party.  Everything from plates to utensils to the matches needed to light the candles.  When you have everything you need on hand it makes for stress-free entertaining.  Buy one or a few large baskets and simply place everything you need to entertain outdoors inside it.  When friends call and say they are going to stop by – all you have to do is get your party basket and half the work of getting ready to entertain is done.
