How To Entertain A Crowd

Have you volunteered to host a large crow over the holidays? This either has you excited or paralyzed with stress. If you’re a novice host, follow these recommendations from the experts and your event will go off without a hitch. Take a deep breath and let the planning begin.  The key to success is advance planning. This will allow you to enjoy your guests as the function and be as relaxed as possible. Let’s get to it!

The simplest way to entertain a crowd for dinner is by serving buffet style. Generally the dining room table is best suited for the buffet. Assemble a centerpiece using fresh greenery from the garden. This can truly be a showstopper. Enlist a friend if you’re not confident. Stack dinner plates at opposite ends of the buffet to allow guests to serve themselves from either side. Roll silverware in napkins and have available next to the plates.

Decide on your menu. As guest will possibly be juggling a plate and possibly a drink, avoid foods with heavy sauces. Avoid experimenting on new dishes for the event unless you’re an accomplished cook. The easier the food preparation the better. Try to make dishes that can be prepared as far in advance as possible. Identify serving dishes and have ready in the kitchen. Set up a drink station or bar in an area away from the main buffet to accommodate the flow of your guests.

Finally, take the time to get yourself ready for the event. Take advantage of the awesome savings offered by Groupon coupons and make an appointment for eyelash extensions. Select an outfit and allow yourself ample time to relax and get dressed. Remember, the most important item to wear to the event is a genuine smile and quiet self-confidence. You’ve got this!

Tips For Entertaining A Crowd

Have you offered to host a large party over the holidays? You’re either paralyzed with fear or are actually looking forward to it. Either way, follow these suggestions from the experts to ensure a fun, memorable evening for both you and your guests. Entertaining a large crowd doesn’t have to be intimidating, just plan to plan!

After you have the headcount for your event you can decide if a sit down dinner is in order or if a buffet will be a better choice for the size of the crowd.  If a buffet is most appropriate, designate the dining table for your buffet table.  Take advantage of the savings offered by Groupon coupons and head to Kmart for a huge selection of table linens and serving pieces. Stack dining plates at either end of the buffet to allow guests to serve themselves from both sides. Roll silverware in napkins and have at either end of the buffet with the plates. Nothing like waiting in line for food to dampen a festive atmosphere!

Plan your menu well in advance. The simpler the items are to prepare the better. Avoid experimenting with new recipes on the day of your event.  Some guests will be juggling drink glasses and plates, so avoid soupy and saucy items. Often a lasagna, salad and bread are sufficient to feed a hungry crowd. Keep it simple and you’ll enjoy your evening as much as your guests.

Consider a separate table for drinks and non-alcoholic beverages. This will keep the guests flowing around the buffet table and will allow them to find a spot for dining and return for drinks. Most of all, relax and enjoy your evening with your holiday guests. The most important thing you can wear is a genuine smile and a relaxed self-confidence.
