I absolutely love entertaining ! My favourite memories of my mum as a child, were of the lovely dinner parties she hosted at our home. My granny ( her mum) also loved have gathering on weekends, the day would be full of cooking , the night of eating and drinking. All my cousins and I would hide under the table, trying to listen to all the adult conversations. They were such good times, and now my son, Karate Boy is having such a blast with my hosted dinner parties. Actually he named our regular family dinner nights on weekends a ” dinner party” with mum and dad…too adorable.
Tomorrow night I am hosting holiday cocktails at my home with a few friends. It was very spontaneous, but I am just too excited to sit by the fireplace and Christmas tree with friends and toast the holidays. The Epicurean Man shall plan out the cocktail menu, the man has become a bonafide mixologist. I have decided to prepare simple but fabulous little bites to accompany all the alcohol.
To start the month of December, I am going to do a few posts about my favourite dinnerware, decorations, food, music, cocktails. This first post is about Dinnerware. Hope you enjoy. Look out for photographs from my cocktail party tomorrow night. xxx
