Entertaining and being the perfect hostess does not have to be a big production. The bottom line is that if it is not fun for you as host or hostess the affair will not be enjoyable for your guest (s). Whether entertaining a crowd or just that special somebody, little touches make all of the difference. The following list is full of little touches that are sure to make your soiree sparkle.
Smile- Remember that your mood sets the tone for the event. Smile and have fun- entertaining should be a pleasure not a chore!
Candles- I almost always have at least one candle burning when I entertain. Whether it is your beloved grandmother's silver candelabra or the quirky candle holder you snatched at your neighbor's yard sale the effect is two-fold as not only will your home smell delicious, it will literally glow.
