So it seems there can be positives in every situation. Search for the silver lining of the recent recession and you may notice just how strong we can be. And it isn’t just the resilience of human nature that can be delightfully surprising. In the aftermath of a tough financial period, we became creative with our fewer options…
There are so many easy entertaining ideas you can do at home (and on a budget) from cocktail parties to cooking a slap-up meal that mixes up what might be becoming a tiresome pattern of weekends eating junk food and watching rubbish reality TV.
Dinner parties, cocktails and film nights are just three of the many options given to you when exploiting your home to the fullest…
Dinner parties are a fantastic way to entertain whilst releasing your inner Delia. Brushing up on your culinary skills comes in handy, yes, but there are other benefits too.
Not only will you save a small fortune, but staying at home could be an opportunity to create the perfect atmosphere for you and your friends without heading to a cramped and clammy club then paying a small fortune to return home five hours later.
There are many ways to be creative. Is it someone’s birthday? halloween is coming up. Have you ever tried lobster? You don’t need a completely justified excuse, nor be a Michelin Star chef to hold a killer dinner party.
The recent release of The Great Gatsby and the return of downton abbey has us rewinding back to a time of extravagance and lavish celebrations, and it couldn’t be simpler to hold your own opulent event…without the price tag.
There is an option to hire your own professional waiting staff and cocktail experts, but why not create your beverages by yourself? Whether you prefer fashioning your own for your guests on their arrival, or laying out all the ingredients for them to go wild, a DIY cocktail soiree is not only classic, but has the potential to turn unforgettable as well.
Get yourself some microwave popcorn, crack open the fizzy and get the coziest of blankets for a good old-fashioned movie night. With the possibility of a theme and fancy dress to coincide with the film genre, a movie night is perfect for bonding. And with halloween just around the corner, there’s never been a better opportunity to go all out.
Whether you have a brand new job, redecorated your home or simply want that all-important gossip at the end of a tough week, using your home to the fullest by entertaining allows you to brush up on your culinary and social skills and most importantly saves a couple of bob as well.
They say ‘Home is where the Heart is’ and that change of scenery you have been craving for in recent weeks could ironically be your own humble abode.
