Entertaining guests, or having people over is not an easy task. It sure is not considered a task if you enjoy being around the people you like and you love. At this day and age though, when we think fast and hassle free is the mantra, we would normally serve guests using our finest paper/disposable plates and cutlery. After all, we now have Chinet (supposedly the fine kind of disposable brand).
For me though, with much respect to those that serve their guests using their finest disposables( to each his own, right?), I find it kind of improper to use disposables when I have guests over. I maybe old fashioned, but it’s just the way I want to do it.
I invite guests over, because they are important to me. And being that they are dear and important, they deserve to be treated the best way I possibly can. Thus, when we have guests, instead of using our everyday tableware, and silverware taking out my finer pieces from the credenza is in order. I love to use my Villeroy & Boch Switch 3 Collection(service for 12 )tableware/serve ware and silverware . I just like the pattern/ design of the pieces.
I can’t dig in to get the other pieces for pictorial purposes. Don’t think that I all bought them at once (mamumulubi asawa ko if I did that) because I didn’t. There were times when I got so frustrated, I’d go to different stores just to make sure of the availability. I’m contented now that I finally got all the pieces I want to have.
How about you? How do you entertain? Just curious…
