Hospitality is a gift. You know those people – maybe you know them personally or you’ve seen them on tv – who welcome people with grace and charm; the more the merrier. And then they do it again the next night. I can cook and set a table with the best of them, but it takes me at least a week to recover from a major holiday. Hospitality is not one of my gifts.
But it is a skill, one which can be learned. As with any skill, having good tools helps. Will the right gadgets make you a better cook? Will the right candle holders create the perfect ambiance? Will the right accessories add panache? Maybe. They won’t hurt your efforts. If your home is full of things you love, you will be delighted to welcome the people you love into your home.
Really, it’s about making people feel comfortable. This is the essence of good manners and hospitality, and we’re happy to help you master this valuable skill.
This month we’re featuring the fun extras that give your entertaining that extra special something – cool trays and serving pieces, candle holders, and glassware. Have a look around, buy yourself something you love that will help you
And sign up for our emails (over on the right margin), because next month we’re going to talk about the Tabletop, with linens and dishware and getting your hospitality on for the holiday season!
