Master The Art of Hosting
Dinner parties, cocktail hours or Sunday lunches with family – hosting is a wonderful way to show those you love most how much you care. Follow MANNING CARETLL’s guide to planning an event in style
If you love entertaining, there’s no better thrill than being dubbed the host with the most. And even though a lot of effort goes into planning an event, the delight of gathering together with friends and family is second to none. Start by creating a to-do list – send out invitations, prepare the perfect outfit, plan a menu that will satisfy your guests – to make sure everything goes smoothly.
Choose a theme or dress code
Setting a theme or dress code is a great way to get people excited and create a cohesive event. From choosing a colour palette for decor to posing a costume party, a common thread can help to create atmosphere. Use Instagram or Pinterest to find inspiration and pull together a mood board to keep you on track. You might also look back on past events that you and your friends have hosted to get ideas for entertainment.
Find a fabulous outfit
Last but certainly not least, don’t forget about planning the perfect attire. If you’ve set a theme or dress code, use your outfit as an opportunity to set the tone for other guests.
