Easy Entertaining with Williams Sonoma

This past weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to teach a class on easy entertaining for Mother’s Day at the Williams Sonoma in Palo Alto.  They had reached out via the event planning company that I work for.  In planning for this class, I knew that I wanted to offer the attendees planning tips that were easy to follow, a menu that allowed for the host to spend as much time as possible with guests and last minute décor ideas that were easy to pull off!

I covered the following five tips for easy entertaining:

       Start with menu planning. 
       Will the food be plated, family style or self serve?
       What dishware pieces will be used to serve the food?
       What pieces will your guests use to eat the food?
       What will you use for décor?

It was wonderful to interact with the attendees directly.  In the class, I showed how I pulled together some easy décor touches using grocery store flowers and printable flower wraps that I designed.

I’m happy to share the Mother's Day flower wrap printable with you HERE (click to open the PDF – print, cut and tape in place!)

I look forward to more events with Williams Sonoma and Pottery Barn to come!
