When entertaining guests, one of my favorite things to do is play games. Cards, Taboo, Apples-to-Apples, Battle of the Sexes, etc. You name it, I probably like playing it (although admittedly, I do not know how to play chess and I cannot stand games that require strategy). Love a healthy dose of competition.
As part of my thrifty entertaining series (I’ve also shared ideas for a simple snack tray and a fall-inspired table centerpiece), I bring you game night inspiration. Next time you’re at a thrift store or a yard sale, keep your eyes open for beautiful, vintage board games, decks of cards, chess sets, etc. It’s difficult to beat sitting down in front of a cozy fire, playing games with friends, munching on popcorn and drinking hot chocolate.
Be sure to keep lots of games on hand (for large & smaller groups); if you have options your guests will definitely find something they feel comfortable playing. And even if it’s only you and your husband/boyfriend/best friend/mom/etc., take the time to sit down, enjoy each other’s company, and get the competition on! It’s important to approach your ordinary, everyday experiences as “entertaining,” making them enjoyable and beautiful.
Have a blessed Thursday, friends (and thanks for all the sweet comments on yesterday’s birthday party post!)
