Wow ‘Em Entertaining: One Simple Item

To me, October is the start of holiday entertaining season. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukah, New Year’s. Boom, boom, boom. There’s no stopping once it starts. Even if you don’t host, you’re a guest and following etiquette. All this week (and really til the end of the year), I’m sharing scrumptious recipes and tips for being an awesome host and guest. Cheers!

Maybe you’re already an awesome cook and know all the ins and outs of creating a delicious meal. But we can’t forget that presentation is half of it. How it’s plated, the color of the food – it all matters. Here’s one simple trick that will knock their socks off. Serve drinks and apps on a tray. No, you don’t have to be the maitre’d all evening. But imagine stepping out of the kitchen with a gorgeous plate of goodies. Who cares if the rest of the dinner is just average? You came out with a tray!!
