Do you like hosting?

Do you NOT like hosting?

Do you want or need to have people at your home/party/event?

Then welcome to How-To Hospitality, which is all about demystifying entertaining:

and lots of other everyday opportunities to practice hospitality.

Whether I’m talking about a six-course dinner party, a giant outdoor pirate shindig, or a play date, I try to wrap up each post with practical tips you can use at home.

Perhaps the best advice I can share comes from my many hospitality failures…don’t make these mistakes at home!

If you like what you read, I hope you’ll subscribe (dropdown at the top of the sidebar) and connect on Twitter. Please comment liberally…share your best hospitality tips and worst hosting fails and ask any hospitality questions you have…I might feature you in a future Q&A!

It’s hard to say who entertains our guests more: my story-telling husband, Matthew; our hilarious kids, Katherine (4) and Joshua (2); our super-automatic espresso machine; or our two Bengal cats, Bugaboo and Bungalow. If you’re ever in New England, drop by for a cup of coffee and determine that for yourself.
