Today is my 300th post!
One of the most rewarding things I've ever done was to start this blog, a little over 2 years ago.
What does, Real Entertaining for Real People really mean?
Did you know that when I started RE that I had committed to using only real-life images on my blog? Images that were real--not borrowed from other sources or websites--of real life dinner parties and happenings in my home - imperfect and all.
What was my purpose?
My purpose was to share my heart and vision for entertaining, in a very detailed way – and RE has grown to have a very large audience. I wanted to encourage women to put their perfectionism aside, to get out of their comfort zones, to learn that the "H" word is more than a church potluck dish - and be challenged to realize how attainable genuine hospitality really is.
Because I am just an imperfect gal, loving a perfect God, and willing to share my life and ideas with you!
I can win an entire RE Dinner Party plan?
Yes, one lucky winner will get an entire Dinner Party planned out – from the table setting to menu planning, all the way to helping with inviting and great conversation starters for your party! It will be easy yet creative, simple yet delicious, and it will suit the style, budget and taste of the person who wins this unique giveaway.
Or, start small!
For the reluctant person who is terrified to invite others into her home, I will give you ideas and we will start small!
How will this work?
After an introductory phone call, I will work with you to find out what you’d like to accomplish in a party or even a lower-key event such as a coffee date with a friend! You will tell me what your budget is, and then I will help you plan, coordinate, and execute my ideas for this special time!
How can I WIN?
Just answer this one easy question:
What's the most helpful thing you've learned about hospitality from my first 300 posts on Reluctant Entertainer? (Or if you are new to RE, what would you find helpful in future posts?)
300 is big!
Yes, 300 is big! And I can’t wait to read the comments that will originate from this crazy idea of mine. Lurkers are also invited to comment, just leave me a viable email address!
Will you join me in the fun? Post about this on your blog and I will enter you twice in the drawing. (Let me know if you do this.)
Winner will be announced Saturday, December 20th!
I can’t think of a more unique Christmas gift than this, can you? Why not give something that is helpful and meaningful, rather than a gift of more “stuff!”
