Entertaining is not simply sending out the proper invitation; it’s about being a great hostess and making friends and family feel welcome in your home. Entertaining can be as simple as asking a neighbor to take a seat on the porch for a cocktail or as formal as a black tie New Year’s Eve Celebration. It doesn’t take a big occasion for the pewter and silver to make its way to the table, pool or porch. Beautiful things make special moments even more elegant. Never be shy about asking for friends’ help when entertaining. A good hostess doesn’t make the party about her but about the guests. Plan, prepare and enjoy!
