Is there any better way to celebrate the season than inviting a handful of friends over for a casual fireside gathering with an array of gourmet cheese, charcuterie, wine, and accouterments? If you know me, then you know my answer is a definite “no” – there is no better way! Welcoming guests with a giant feast board filled with gourmet goodies from Harry & David, plus a few bottles of the New Harry & David Sparkling Wine, is a guaranteed way to delight your guests while keeping things uncomplicated for you, the host! I love that, with Harry & David, you can easily design any occasion tailored to a specific budget; their products range from $10 to $400!
I recently partnered with Harry & David to host an al fresco Autumn evening; we gathered around the campfire, sipped on wine, and snacked on an array of artfully arranged gourmet items, simply enjoying each other’s company around the fire. The conversation lingered for hours.
Creating a beautiful space in which guests are nourished is one of my passions. Over the years, I’ve learned that it doesn’t have to be elaborate. Some of the most memorable moments have been when guests are casually invited just a day or two in advance, and no one is required to make or bring anything. Keep reading for my tips & tricks for hosting impromptu outdoor gatherings.
I hope you are able to make the most of the last few weeks of the year of open air hosting…
And that’s it! Hope these tips and tricks help you to host an impromptu outdoor gathering this season! What secrets do you have up your sleeve?
