I got an inspiring email from my friend, Faye, who has years of entertaining under her apron. I loved her idea and thought I’d share it with you!
Faye's simple idea was this:
We had an intergenerational ice cream party yesterday afternoon for special friends, their grown son, his wife, and two daughters (6 and 3.) It only lasted an hour, was outdoors on our lawn, and was fun!
Faye mentions this because of the TIME element. She feels TIME really prohibits people from having people over!
She went on to say:
My daughter-in-law has taught me the joy of having people over "spur of the moment" and ordering takeout. That way, the being together is paramount for adults and kids, and the food is not the focus.
That last line says it for me! Food is essential when entertaining, but it doesn't have to be the focus.
What are your spur-of-the-moment SUMMER entertaining ideas?
Or, does time prohibit you from having people over?
