Tips for Newlyweds
(NUI) - You're just married and
you're ready to celebrate. But is your kitchen ready for entertaining?
As a newlywed, you might be a
little nervous about throwing your first dinner party. But there's no
reason to panic. Enlist the help of your new spouse and get ready to
spend some time in the kitchen.
The easiest way to have an
impromptu party is to invite some friends over for a potluck. But if
you want to have something more extravagant, then planning is key.
Here are some tips to get you started:
* Decide the menu. To save money,
check the cupboards to see what you have and what you can make from
it. Next, make a list of what you need and plan to go grocery
shopping right before the party so what you buy is fresh.
* Don't forget the decor. Often
it's fun to go with a theme and decorate accordingly. However, you
can always set up a simple table of mismatched, but elegant dishes,
wine glasses and goblets with a vase of flowers or centerpiece. You
also can provide a buffet table. Either way, this is a perfect time
to show off wedding gifts you received, such as flatware, napkins and
* Get ready to cook. Do you have
all of the parts needed for your new mixer, blender and food
processor? Are there recipes you are making that require some special
attachments that you don't have?
