Last-Minute Entertaining Tips That Would Impress Even Martha Stewart
Although we love friends dropping by on a whim, entertaining on cue can be a challenge if you’re not prepared. Being a great host doesn’t have to mean slaving over a hot stove to serve a three-course meal, but rather serving up simple and delicious refreshments and enjoying the moment with your guests. These last-minute entertaining tips will make those impromptu get-togethers a breeze.
Stock up your pantry with simple snacks that don’t require serious prep. Think crackers, flatbread, olives, nuts and gherkins. Not only are they no-fuss, but you can keep them in your pantry for weeks—ready and waiting for times like these. Cheeses, fruit, and simple spreads like hummus—all things you might already be in your kitchen—are other things that can be served in an instant onto large chopping board for an impressive antipasto offering.
