Napkin Smarts: Large Group Entertaining!
Last week when the Varsity soccer team and their families came for dinner (in celebration of an incredible season and making it to the State Championship game!), I immediately thought about “time” and “space.” How would we cram 35-40 people into our home, and how could I make the eating process quick and simple.
I keep the largest pack of IKEA white napkins stocked in my pantry at all times; perfect for large-group entertaining.
As much as I love cloth napkins, sometimes you have to use what’s most efficient for the event, in this case paper napkins.
Wrap each fork (or utensils) with a white IKEA napkin and put inside a parfait bowl.
-Easy for the guests.
-Keeps the flow moving through the buffet line.
-Easy task for kids to help prepare.
Do you keep a stash of paper napkins in the pantry?
How do you display utensils for a large-group event?
(Wanting to remain joyful and to keep a right perspective this time of year, I want to introduce to you my friend Jami, mother of quadruplets, and her new blog Mom’s Flight School. She wrote a post called, Broken Dishes which I think you’ll enjoy.)
