Entertaining family and friends is probably one of the most important things we do as homemakers to give us a break from the routine tasks we do everyday. It gives us a chance to bring family and friends together in merriment and fun.
Entertaining may seem daunting if you are not inclined or used to it but here’s the good news! It can be simplified with some tips and practice. If you plan your event carefully, there is every chance that you will pull it off.
To some, entertaining may seem stressful because the food, the cooking, the home, will all be on display. My tip here is to start small. Have one non judgemental friend over and take it slowly from there. It will not happen overnight but it will happen! Keep at it.
Each time, you have and host an event, even if it is for 2-3 people, you will be cooking and cleaning your home. You will need time to get ready to greet your guests. As your repertoire grows, so will your confidence in hosting bigger events.
I have two recent videos on hosting and entertaining and I hope those videos along with the descriptions, will give some ideas to bring family and friends together.
