I’m the kind of person who likes to plan a party in advance but my husband is the kind of person who can plan a party last minute with 5 minutes to spare.
I love to plan everything out, make sure the dishes are cleaned off and ready to use and find some fancy decorations for dressing up the table.
One thing that I do think makes any dinner party easier is planning your meal/menu ahead. If you know what you are going to serve, you have time to prepare and more time to focus on other things while your food is cooking.
You can print up place cards, fill a mason jar with rocks and place a tea-light on top. I have always loved the idea of hanging mason jars… one day, I just might be brave enough to try this:
You can pull out the Mason Jar Wine Glasses…
I am definitely the kind of person to over-analyze and plan ahead when it comes to dinner parties but to me, that just makes it that much more fun.
One thing that I feel would make things even easier is a good dishwasher. Ours is junk. It leaves crap all over the dishes and I’m not gonna lie, it’s actually a portable dishwasher turned “stationary”.
You can easily set yourself up for an easy clean kitchen at the end of the end with the Electrolux Stainless Steel Dishwasher with IQ-Touch™ Controls (EI24ID50QS).
Here are a few things I love about this dishwasher:
– A professional-level clean in just 30 minutes – so dishes are clean and ready before the next course is served.
– Holds plastics and dishware in place, and prevent flipping for a more thorough clean. (No more tupperware full of water when the cycle is done!)
The new Electrolux dishwasher provides a professional level clean with its 30-minute wash and dry cycle. As the highest rated dishwasher on Reviewed.com (http://dishwashers.reviewed.com/content/electrolux-ei24id50qs-dishwasher-review), it also features SatelliteSpray Arm technology which provides 400% more water coverage than a traditional dishwasher.
