THE JOY OF ENTERTAINING... AT HOME!
Entertaining has become a lost art in our modern culture. Making reservations is certainly easy to do. Unfortunately, it means fewer people experience the joy that comes from inviting guests into their home.
The beauty and art of entertaining is in setting the mood, creating the perfect menu, and placing your guests center stage. Our mothers and grandmothers exemplified true entertainment. For them, restaurant dining was usually a special day to be served…a way to celebrate a birthday or Mother’s Day. The rest of the time they hosted dinner parties at home. You can, too!
