Have you ever arrived for a dinner party and wondered if you had the right night? When people arrive at our front door…they never have to wonder. From the moment our guests arrive we want people to feel relaxed and know they are going to have a wonderful evening. There are only 14 Saturday nights between Memorial Day and Labor Day…so we want to make it worth their evening. We may start our evening by having drinks on the bluff to catch the sun setting over Catalina then come back to our house for dinner. If we are going to be having drinks on the bluff, that means everything from the house to the menu has to be completely thought out and organized so no one is waiting too long for dinner. We usually bring a cheese or antipasta platter down to the bluff. Dinner is served back at the house and it needs to be something that is ready to go.
|Doors are open and candles are lit . . .|
This is what our guests see when they arrive and this is what they might be listening to. . . It may seem a little cliche, but even when we lived back east we would play the Beach Boys. This music just gets the party started. Have a great weekend!
