We had friends over this past weekend and WOW – it felt so great to entertain again. I’ve missed these fall nights- long dinners, great friends and laughing until you cry – it was good for the soul. Steve made an AWESOME paella (don’t worry, I’ll make sure to type up the recipe) and I had fun creating this fall cookie plate + a few cheese plates. I decided to round up a few of my favorite things you must have to entertain – let’s just call them entertainment staples. Here’s to many more night like this!
