breaking bread Dinner Party Tips
Save time by setting your first course out before guests are seated. To avoid having to heat or cool your first course, serve a fresh salad with bread. This affords you more time to socialize and enjoy company!
Keep things simple by displaying desserts and drinks on a separate table. This allows guests to serve themselves and creates a cohesive, styled look in your dining room. Tasteful tip: create a variety of heights by using cake stands to display dessert, fruit, and drinks.
Display Hearth items on your coffee table for a warm, cozy evening among friends. Showcase our recipe for baked Brie and youâ€™ll be the hostess with the Mostess!
Outdoor entertaining isnâ€™t just for paper and plastic items. Your Hearth items can bring an air of style to a tailgate, picnic or gathering around the fire pit.
