Once while hosting Book Club with some wonderful women I discovered I was lacking space to serve all the amazing food that kept arriving. My friend Jordan quickly suggested that I use the 3 square bar stools I had as a serving area...fabulous idea!!! We pushed them together over against a bare wall and voila, we piled it with serving platters and delicious food! I say the next time you throw a P.A.R.T.Y try this.
Imagine: Drink Bar- 3 bar stools, 2 serving trays, one piled with drinks and the other with cute napkins, an ice bowl and some chunky glasses...maybe even a small bouquet of fresh flowers for a splash of color! Delicious Desserts - Same idea as listed above but pile the trays with any yummy desserts: cookies, candies, cupcakes or a trifle...you get the idea. I think adding a serving tier would make for a beautiful design element!
Good luck creating fabulous serving areas at your next P.A.R.T.Y!!!
Martha Stewart's Poms (tutorial here) such a simple way to add mega color/design to any P.A.R.T.Y! One great tip: post-P.A.R.T.Y smash them down flat, save and reuse... that makes them a definite money saver!
