For the first installment of our NYC Entertaining series, we threw a rooftop dinner party! See how you can do it, too.
When Clara and I (Jen) started talking about how we both like to entertain, it was pretty clear we were on the same page. It isn’t about waiting for a special occasion or having the perfect table setting, it is about taking the time to gather friends for a fun evening. As summer comes to an end, we wanted to welcome fall with open arms. With a glass of wine and a delicious one pan dish, we combined our entertaining forces to transform the space and pull together a straightforward guide with everything you need to set the scene for an evening that won’t have you running around all day preparing. From the grocery list to using what you have around the house; download the planning materials below and you will be ready, with wine in hand, to welcome guests in less than two hours!
