Ok Ladies and Gentlemen! We all have had these visions of the "perfect party" and being the "perfect host". Dreams of a gorgeous tablescape with decadent pastries and mouth watering hors d'oeuvres. Images of yourself beautifully dressed in a designer outfit while mingling with your guests. An essence of peace and tranquility oozes from you while a sumptuous 5 course dinner is served.
...and then you wake up!!! Is this dream really possible??? Of course it is, but....
Having a party that seems effortless is very difficult. Do we live in an age when we are taught the art of being a host? I don't think so...that was in the 70's. Now a days, we are taught how to multitask and manage a career while running our children to their activities. And there's nothing wrong with that. But do we really have the time it takes to plan a " Picture Perfect Party"?
So what should you do the next time you want to have a dinner party, or have a tea party for your daughter's 5th birthday? I suggest to begin with making an outline of what the party is about. Start with the following questions:
1. What is the purpose of the party...Birthday, graduation, dinner with friends, etc...?
2. When will the party be...day, time?
3. Where will the party be?
4. What is the theme? Who will decorate?
5. How many guests?
6. What food will be served and who will make it?
7. What kind of entertainment?
So after trying to answer these questions, do you feel ready to plan every detail or overwhelmed by all that has to be done? Are you excited to dive into the preparations or are you gasping at the thought of trying to pull this all together? Does the idea of cooking a 5 course meal or designing a tablescape make you smile or want to hide under the blankets? Do you even know what the word "tablescape" means? Well, if you do, than that is awesome!!! I would recommend searching Pinterest for some inspiration. There are some amazing pictures with beautiful themes for you to draw from.
