Party Philosophy

Who doesn’t love a good party?  We love to entertain.  Any excuse to get the gang together is a great reason for a party.  We do lots of easy poolside BBQs + lunches, snack, and cocktails on the boat.  I spent years throwing parties that we great for guests but I never left the kitchen.  Now I’ve learned to make entertaining stress-free and fun for me and my guests.  I’ll share what I’ve learned and hope that it will make it easier for you to have awesome parties that get you out of the kitchen and into the party mix.
