Cool tips for fall entertaining....

AS WE HEAD INTO THE COOLER MONTHS, WE BEGIN TO NEST INDOORS AND THINK ABOUT INVITING GUESTS OVER FOR COZY GATHERINGS.  WHO DOESN’T LOVE ENTERTAINING IN THE FALL?  THE WEATHER IS CRISP, YOU CAN LIGHT A FIRE AND SOME CANDLES AND CREATE A BEAUTIFUL WARM AMBIANCE.  NOT TO MENTION ALL THE GREAT COMFORT FOODS YOU CAN SERVE YOUR GUESTS.  WE’VE GATHERED OUR BEST TIPS FOR CASUAL FALL ENTERTAINING TO SHARE WITH YOU. 

Prep in advance

TAKE OUT ALL YOUR SERVING DISHES, GLASSES, SILVERWARE AND LINENS A COUPLE OF DAYS IN ADVANCE.  SET YOUR TABLE, PLAN YOUR MENU,  AND KEEP YOUR DISHES SIMPLE- ONE POT CASSEROLES AND BITE SIZED DESSERTS MAKE THE EVENING LESS STRESSFUL AND ALLOW YOU TO ENJOY SPENDING TIME WITH YOUR GUESTS.
WELCOME GUESTS WITH MUSIC - HAVE A PLAYLIST READY TO GO THAT WILL MAKE GUESTS INSTANTLY FEEL AT HOME AND RELAXED.  HERE’S ONE OF OUR FAVOURITES: 

Create a signature cocktail

THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST TIPS FOR ENGAGING YOUR GUESTS AND STARTING THE CONVERSATION.  OUR ALKEMISTA DIFFUSER BOTTLES MAKE THE MOST DELICIOUS INFUSIONS AND ARE SIMPLE TO USE.  ADD YOUR FAVOURITE FRUITS, HERBS OR BOTANICALS TO THE FILTER, FILL THE BOTTLE WITH YOUR CHOICE OF ALCOHOLIC, OR NON- ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE, AND LET THE FLAVOURS INFUSE. 
HERE’S A DELICIOUS COCKTAIL WITH HINTS OF CINNAMON,
CLOVES AND GINGER, PERFECT FOR FALL.
 
CONTINUING WITH THE COCKTAIL THEME, SET UP A BEAUTIFUL BAR CART WITH A SELECTION OF WINE, SPIRITS, AND MIXERS FOR YOUR GUESTS TO HELP THEMSELVES THROUGHOUT THE EVENING.  THE BEAUTIFUL GERARD BAR CART IS AVAILABLE IN BOTH BRUSHED GOLD AND POLISHED CHROME AND HAS LARGE SHELVES TO HOLD YOUR BOTTLES AND GLASSWARE.  MAKE SURE YOU INCLUDE SLICED LEMONS, LIMES AND OLIVES IN SEPARATE DISHES FOR GARNISH AND SOME SIMPLE SNACKS LIKE SPICED NUTS OR POPCORN.

SIT BACK AND ENJOY YOUR TIME WITH FRIENDS AND FAMILY.  YOU’VE EARNED IT!
