Friends, have you ever thought about what not to do when entertaining? Today I’m sharing a few thoughts, plus my favorite summer Mango-Orange Bellini Beverage Recipe!

I’m using sharing helpful entertaining tips, but today, here are a few things you DON’T want to do …

  1. Don’t over-schedule yourself the day that you are hosting. Make sure to have enough time to cook, set the table, and possibly create last minute touches that make you happy!
  2. Don’t plan a sit-down meal, if it stressed you out! A buffet is super-easy, and everyone feels right at home dishing up their own food and keeping it casual.
  3. Don’t cook something that you are not familar with. You’ll be so stressed out about the details and cooking schedule, that you’ll not be “present” for your guests.
  4. Don’t think that silence is a good thing. A little background music is always a must. It sets the tone, mood, and can really add to the in-between-moments where no one is talking!
  5. Don’t worry about every detail, as no one is going to inspect your home, or check out your bedroom, or look in cupboards.
  6. Don’t talk too much (if you’re an extrovert). Learn to listen more, so you don’t miss out on cool conversation, or learning something about someone else.
  7. Don’t go into hosting thinking that everything will be perfect. It never will be, and you’re setting yourself up for huge disappointments. Go with the flow, and relax!

Trust that the people coming over are coming to get to know you, that they are just as interested in investing in your life as you are in theirs!

We recently had our neighbors over, and loved, loved, loved getting to know them. They were so interesting, and it was super-fun exchanging stories and experiences. Plus, living in the same town, it’s great to learn more about the place you are living.

  1. love the mango in this, nicely different flavor! Great entertaining tips too, I’ve done all of these things and regretted it! The point is to enjoy not stress, thank you!

  2. This sounds great! I’ve never made any sort of bellini before so I’m excited to try something new. I also like that you say things won’t be perfect – I wish everyone would realize that when they’re trying to host. It’d make it more fun for both the host and the guests.
