Organization Makes Entertaining A Breeze

Entertaining at home can be a great way to welcome summer. Now is the perfect time to put out those patio chairs and invite over some friends for a backyard get together. But first it’s import to have a prep area, your kitchen, that is well organized and easy to use. That way when it’s time to entertain getting ready and finding everything needed is a breeze.

There’s nothing like a chilled glass of wine on a warm summer evening to relax and unwind. Keeping wine glasses and a chilled bottle of wine on hand means always being ready to serve guests. The Under Cabinet Stemware Rack – Set of 2 is a convenient storage solution for wine glasses. Mounting on the underside of a cabinet glasses are easy to grab and this rack frees up cabinet space. Storing them out in the open but upside down means that wines are accessible but don’t gather dust.

Keeping wine chilled outdoors is a must when entertaining. A bottle cooler for a single bottle of wine can be a set on a table for easy access and keeping wine cool. For larger gatherings a metal wine cooler is a useful permanent patio addition. Simply add ice and your favorite drinks and you’re ready to go!

Whether it’s a party of one or ten enjoying the patio everyone appreciates a snack. Cheese makes the perfect accompaniment to a chilled white wine. A cheese board with built in cutlery is perfect for serving cheese and bread slices outside. Chilled fresh fruit or vegetables, a refreshing and healthy choice, is another great choice for an outdoor snack.

With the right serving pieces and glasses it’s easy to entertain in style! All that’s needed are some comfortable patio chairs and you’ll be enjoying the outdoors all summer long.
