3 Tips for Stress-Free Entertaining This Summer

Entertaining should be stress-free, enjoyable, and help you focus on what really matters — the people around the table. A few of our tips to entertaining at home:

 

01 | Use What You’ve Got — Don’t buy into the lie that you’ve got to set up a picture-perfect scene for your get-together. Take inventory of what you have at home that can help make the environment special — fun throw pillows or textiles you can move from indoors out to your patio and utilizing linen napkins from the last bash you threw. Chances are, you’ve already got all you need to make your next gathering special.

 

 

02 | Grab Some Blooms — Instead of stressing over decor, keep it minimal! We love using fresh flowers like summer peonies or hydrangeas to liven up a space. Your local farmer’s market typically will have the most fresh + in-season flowers — so check there first!

 

 

03 | Keep It Simple — One way to keep entertaining easy? Keep the menu simple. we recommend one main snack that everyone will love — that’s why we went with this classic queso dip. we already knew queso was a crowd favorite, but we added our own special touch by incorporating a toppings bar; fresh tomatoes, cilantro, and jalapeño just to name a few. the best part? this fuss-free dip only took us 10 minutes to whip up so we could spend less time in the kitchen + more time with friends.

 

 

This summer, keep entertaining easy, fun, and focused on making memories with the people you love most. We can’t wait to see how you entertain this season — tag us on instagram to share with us! [@aisle9 | #aisle9]
