Entertaining during the winter months may sound unappealing, but for us, it’s the best way to connect with friends that we lost touch with over the holidays. Whether it’s hosting a Wine Wednesday Book Club or Friday Night Cocktails, we love inviting our friends over to reconnect!

If winter entertaining still sounds painful, these tips are sure to ease the pain for both you and your guests!

Line up any help you may need for the day of your party and schedule in advance to account for potential weather issues.

Welcome guests upon arrival with a warm drink. They’ll love being served something warm and it will instantly get the party started!

Be sure to designate an area for coats and jackets so guests don’t feel they need to carry them around all evening.

As always, planning in advance will help keep you stress-free the day of your party, especially during the winter months!
