I think it’s such a helpful skill to know how to quickly put together a party. For this spring season, I teach a women’s bible study through my church. Last week, I brought the edible yummies. I want to share with you how I did it because I think that I can share with you some tips and tricks that can be applied to throwing a whole big party.
First I went to Fresh Market, a local upscale grocery store that’s close to my home. Fresh Market is such a good place to go for fresh, prepared baked goods, ripe and ready delicious produce, and specialty drinks. I purchased their French Vanilla pound cake, a big bag of dark purple grapes, a package of fresh raspberries, and raspberry lemonade. I like to use finger foods because it’s casual and it simplifies party hosting for the hostess. There’s no need for cutlery or cake knives or the like.
At home, I sliced the vanilla pound cake into halves and spread them nicely out on a plate. Wrapped in saran wrap, that dish was ready for the road.
Alrighty, now that I was all set to go with my purchased and from home supplies, I travelled along my merry way. When I arrived, I unloaded my one crate and hid it in the laundry closet. That’s a good tip, too. Hide your prep work!
When I arrived, I unpacked my goodies, made the drink, washed and plated the grapes, and unwrapped the pound cake. It’s simple as one – two – three.
