Great Investments For The Home Entertainer

If it seems as though every Christmas, birthday party, graduation party, and Fourth of July (amongst others) are held at your house – you are probably no stranger to entertaining. Whether most of your events are held indoors or outdoors, there are some investments you can make that will make your life easier and your guests times more enjoyable. Whether they’re saving you a trip to the store or providing a conversation piece – these fun and helpful party items are a must for any host or hostess.

· Although you may associate them with weddings or fancy dinner parties, chocolate fountains are a great investment for anyone who enjoys entertaining. These easy to maintain items can be found at any cooking store and are extremely reasonably priced. You won’t have to worry about supervising it the entire time and your guests will have a fun new way to enjoy appetizers. You’ll look like a professional party host and you’ll have it for every event to come.

· If you’re constantly looking for platters and bowls to serve food on during every party, investing in a matching set will be something you will definitely benefit from. Many sets are available at cooking stores that include punch bowls, serving trays, and even serving tools like ladles and tongs. If you don’t have a cooking store nearby, you can also find items like these at any party store. Investing in a little more expensive, but higher quality, set will ensure that you will have these useful items for years to come. Never again will you have to spend an afternoon searching for dishes and plates to house your menu selections.

· If you entertain outdoors often, you know that there’s very little you can do to prevent bugs from hovering around food spreads. Instead of constantly swatting flies away – invest in some clear plastic food covers. They’ll keep your food protected from the bugs while still allowing party goers to see what’s underneath them.

· Another great investment for outdoor entertainers is high quality patio furniture. Sure, it’s easy to go out and replace cheap, broken chairs with more cheap chairs – but repeating this process every year can be both costly and annoying. By investing in patio or lawn furniture that you can either spray down with the hose or wash the seat/cushion covers mid-season, you’ll be able to easily maintain this furniture that will last you through multiple seasons.

· If you’ve ever planned an outdoor event and you’re worried that your porch won’t be large enough for everyone if it starts to rain, an outdoor canopy is something that will take away that lingering fear. Whether you’re using it to house chairs on a rain threatening afternoon or you’re using it as shelter for the food on an extremely sunny day, a small canvas canopy is easy to put up and down and has multiple uses.

So whether you’re an avid entertainer or are just getting into the game – making these investments will be something that both you and your guests will benefit from. Just as you would plan ahead for a vacation, think of your parties in the same light. The more experience you have, the better you’ll be at planning and organizing things. By having these helpful items already in the home, you’ll be a step ahead when it comes to getting things together.
