Party Philosoph-

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 spree-free and fun for me and my guests.  I’ll share what I’ve learned and hope it will make it easier for you to throw awesome parties – that get you out of the kitchen and into the party.

Let’s get this party started!
