You want to entertain but just where to begin? Friends often ask me where I come up with my ideas! For me it starts with a single thought. My most recent party was a Backyard Barbeque with 45 friends!
My husband is telling friends that we were having a Barbeque and that started the ball rolling for me. The planning process begins to formulate in my mind. My eyes are open and before too long something catches my attention and the foundation for a success party is under way.
In this case it was the napkins I found at Hallmarks, which said Barbeque all over them with a red back ground, they inspired me. Once you decided on the date, and the guest list is created, you are well on your way. Keep in mind, you have to decide if you want your party to include children and if so what plans do you have to keep them entertained and what food will you serve to the smaller guests. Our party was for adults and I like to think that the couples enjoyed having a night out with each other.
My menu was an inspiration by the darling invites I found. They had a sweet pig in a bib with a red and brown bandana print. Doesn’t that speak Baby Back Ribs and Brisket to you? Me too and these two dishes I happen to be good at.
Do you see the thought process that leads to being inspired. We all have them, trust in your thoughts and keep them simple. You are well on your way to a fun party!
