My Prop Closet for Entertaining
Posted on Friday, September 14th, 2012
I am a former hoarder. I am still constantly tempted to save things that I might need one day. I also see the potential to create something wonderful out of things that others find not so wonderful. Now I like living with less stuff, but as you can see by this picture, I still have plenty. Fortunately, I like to organize and keep things tidy.
So what this has to do with the world of cocktails is presenting them in a lovely fashion, and how cocktails are intertwined with entertaining. I recently declared this alcove my prop closet for entertaining. I emptied everything out, re-evaluated what was important to me, and what I wanted to use the most when we entertain. Now all the vases are together, the pitchers are in one spot, and items got grouped in color families.
This system is working for me.
