From cocktails to snacks, what’s on the menu for your next party

Now that the warmer months are here, many of us are starting to wonder how we can fine tune our summer entertaining skills. Rather than sticking with the same-old party staples, Alison Deyette, Style and Entertainment Expert, will help you take your summer home entertaining to the next level!

Alison says planning a unique party isn’t hard, and it can be completely affordable as well!

When it comes to decor, a lot of people leave the decorations till the last minute, but that can be simple too! Skip the fresh cut flowers because in the heat, they wilt really quickly. Instead, use different levels of jars and vases and fill them with lemons, grapes, etc, so you get the color and something you can actually use!”
