THE ART OF BEING

A HOSTESS

For those who entertain regularly in their homes, and want to be sure that every detail of the event is flawless from beginning to end. Here are a few examples of what will be covered in the class:

  • What you should keep in mind when planning a menu

  • Tableware, table setting, and seating arrangement  

  • How to greet your guests and how to introduce them to others attending

  • Aperitif  time

  • When and how to proceed to the table

  • Table conversation do and don’ts and how to navigate uncomfortable conversation subjects 

  • Timing between food courses 

  • What about coffee? Should you offer the tea? 

  • Bringing a smooth closure to the end of the evening

I find great joy in bringing family and friends together, and sharing the art of entertaining in my home. It can be stressful for the host, or hostess, but with proper planning, and good organization, it will be an enjoyable event not only for your guests, but for you as well!
