My foolproof formula for entertaining.
Whether you are cooking for 10 or 100 or 1000.
In this episode, I share all the tricks and tips I use every single time I have guests over. This game plan will show you how to keep it simple and stress-free.
Inviting friends over should not send you into a flat-out panic. Celebrating special moments, sharing conversations, and enjoying a meal with those we love is one of life’s greatest treasures.
You don’t want to miss the party by being in the kitchen, the whole time.
My goal is to help you get organized, so you can be present with your guests.I want you to soak up all the praise when your friends tell you how beautiful the table looks and how delicious the food is. These compliments make all the effort worthwhile.
It’s been a crazy year I think all of us are starved toast and have friends over. I hope my game plan helps you take the stress out of entertaining. Going forward, I want hosting to become something effortless and easy to do.
And don’t forget to tag me @themelissamayo. I can’t wait to see the incredible feasts that you put together.
Happy cooking and entertaining my angel xxx MM
