House Party Style
The House Party is a classic way of entertaining. Get a group of friends together – preferably a few who don’t know each other well – and meet up at a country house, cabin or villa. Spend the week cooking, playing games and exploring the area. At a house party, entertaining is a group activity. Take the stress out of it! Learn to make a unique regional dish together. Go on long walks. Go salmon fishing or bike riding. Or just find a hammock and a good book. If you can’t get away just now, create a sense of place in your own home with real Moroccan decor or add some Venetian pieces to your holiday table. Another option? Take it outside! Here are some tips for styling your outdoors to really play host with the most!
