How Do You Prepare For Hosting A Party?
When preparing to host a party you need to create a guest list. Then consider what date and time works best for you to host the party. Keep in mind important dates your guest may have around the same time to ensure their schedule is open on the date of your event. Select a location. Will you host at your home, a local restaurant, or at a local venue? Once you have determined the date, time, location, and guest list. Then it’s time to move onto my favorite party of hosting a party… the food!
How Much Food Do I Need For A Party?
Planning for food at a party can be tricky… especially if you have unexpected guests arrive. I like to keep items on hand in the freezer that can be prepared quickly, in addition to my planned party menu. This ensures I will never run out of food. No food at a party can be a dampener on fun. Small bite size finger foods to enjoy while spending time together are your best bet.
How Do You Plan A Menu?
My favorite place to start my menu preparation is by shopping on Perdue Farms direct-to-consumer website at http://www.perduefarms.com. While Perdue is the #1 supplier of organic chicken in the USA…Did you know that Perdue Farms offers more than just chicken?

I absolutely love Coleman Natural Foods Promise.
“At Coleman Natural Foods, we believe saying “NO” is a good thing. It’s how we steer clear of what’s not real and keep the meat we raise as simple and delicious as possible. We know in our heart that if it’s not right for the animals we care for or the families we serve, we say “NO” and always will. It’s the principle we’ve stood by with our farmers and their families for over 125 years. Plain and simple. “
Party Appetizers – Perdue Olive Oil Chicken Wings
Pre-seasoned with herbed olive oil with roasted garlic and sea salt. No preparation or forethought needed. These wings are ready to cook from frozen. Tasty wings from chickens raised cage free, 100% vegetarian fed, without any hormones or steroids. Simply place and bake or grill! I bake our in the oven. Our wings were crisp on the edges, just how I like them. My kids loved the flavor. They devoured the wings on their plate before I could even get my first bite.
Utilize Niman Ranch Pulled Pork to make a party favorite. Heat up the pulled pork. Nestle on top of tortilla chips. Then layer with red onions, cheese, sour cream, and cilantro. Niman Ranch Fat Tire St. Louis Style Pork Ribs with Amber Ale Barbecue Sauce are a hearty party option for big appetites. Niman Pork Ribs are seasoned perfectly. A little bit sweet and a little bit tangy. Wrap in foil, bake, and enjoy! Party bites everyone enjoys.
How Do You Entertain Guests At A Party?
Entertaining guests is really as simple as providing a relaxing atmosphere. Play soft music or have a sports game on the tv. Provide ample food and drinks. Most of all, though is to enjoy the time to connect through conversation. Don’t feel as if you have to by overly gimmicky, with games or themed activities. The goal is just to enjoy each others company!
