Easy Entertaining

We rarely have company, but I love the IDEA of entertaining! I have so many serving bowls and platters…pitchers, punch bowls…various crock pots…YOU NAME IT! The thing is, entertaining doesn’t have to be difficult.

While I have Pinterest boards FULL of appetizer and cocktail party ideas, I have a few go-to items that make an easy, but filling spread.

  • Tortilla Chips & Salsa
  • Cheese & Crackers
  • Fruit
  • Olives, Baby pickles, pickled okra
  • Frozen chicken (bone-in or boneless wings)

Depending on the size of the crowd I might add a few more items, but these simple staples generally do the trick. When you arrange them on your favorite serving platters it looks pretty fancy!

Complete your menu with a few beverage options and you have a party! Here are a few of my favs:

I may have mentioned before, but I’m no wine snob. I prefer to drink what tastes good, and I don’t like to pay much for it. Of course, you know your guests, so adjust for your taste. Basically, you want to have a red and white wine choice…and a pitcher of something tasty, but potent! šŸ˜‰

Let me know your recipe for easy entertaining in the comments!
