Easy Entertaining – What I Always Have On Hand

Now that spring is fast approaching I am getting excited to entertain more. Obviously we live in a small apartment so over the holidays we end up going to other family members houses and entertaining is at a minimum. When the weather changes for the better I love having small get togethers in our apartment. Because we are tight on storage space I rely heavily on this Ikea Billy cabinet in the kitchen to hold all my serveware.

Even if you live in a small place, I have found it is best to collect items over time to have on hand when entertaining. I dream of one day having a beautiful kitchen with my favorite dishes, but until then a basic glass front cabinet works wonders. I love displaying my favorite glasses and bowls and use just about everything in there. Some of my favorite pieces that I reach for time and time again are;

Linen Napkins

Extra Flatware

Glasses for Every Occassion

Cheese Knives

Cheese Board

Small Bowls

Different Sized Vases

White Platters

I use these to hold my napkins and love this collection to hold miscellaneous items like napkin rings. Small bowls like this and this are great for hosting.
