Entertaining with Kerry, $99 


What is the secret to the art of entertaining? Is it decadence, elegance, temperance, or quiet demure simplicity? Do we call hosting a barbecue with cheap domestic beer a “marvelous party”? Are the sweet “cake and punch receptions” with tight little bouquets of roses and daisies and a silver bowl of nuts still elegant? Must we get out a primitive cutting board and turn over a bushel basket of fruit in the center of our tables to exhibit the unencumbered, uninhibited stylishness of today? Entertaining is more than party planning. It is more than pressed linens or plastic table clothes. Entertaining is finding a way to share your home, your food, your drink, with those both loved and unloved. Join expert entertainer /host Kerry Davis and define just how to do that in a way that is comfortable for you - while maintaining some sense of style and elegance.
