Entertaining with Bev: Over the Top & Down to Earth
Tried and true entertaining ideas
For the past 25 years I’ve been the Editor of St. Charles Avenue magazine and produced an entertaining column almost monthly. I have co-authored four books on entertaining and I give presentations all over the United States. My latest lecture is called “Over the Top and Down to Earth,” which includes fabulous parties that are extremely expensive as well as ideas that are simple, inexpensive and may only include a trip to the grocery store. These are some of my favorites (so you may have seen them before in this magazine or in my books)!
Entertaining is a gift you give to your friends! My advice is to do what you do best and have fun. Your guests are there to be with you and to have a great time. Try to include something over the top and something down to earth at all of your parties. Personally, I love place cards and favors, and passing out maracas and tambourines as we dance to the juke box or to music in between courses!
