The Hostess With The Mostest

 The Hostess With The Mostest


We all love a good party or a home-cooked meal with family or friends. Whenever we get the chance to be the host, we try our best to make everything look good, make the food appetizing, and always bring out the best of what we have. We aim to be the hostess with the mostest, thinking of each and every detail that our guests will appreciate, from the menu and the choice of table linen and china to the flower decorations or table centerpieces. We put together some ideas for possible events you may be hosting and how you can look good while preparing your table settings and decorations. 

Throw A Birthday Bash

Magenta Puff Sleeve Linen Midi Dress


Planning a birthday party can be stressful at times but the trick is to never let it show on the day itself. We dress up, put on makeup and accessories and make sure we look presentable to all our guests. We usually pick an outfit that will go well with the other details we’ve planned like the color motif of the party or one that would complement the table setting and decorations.

Organize A Dinner Party

Elegant Pearl Button Down Juliette Dress


We usually host dinner parties for close family or friends in the comfort of our home. It could be to celebrate an important occasion or it could simply be a chance to catch up with one another. Whatever the purpose, we like to go all out.

Prepare A Reunion Lunch

Sage Shirred Bodice Puff Sleeve Midi Linen Dress


A reunion with friends or family whom we haven’t seen in a long time can be daunting as we can’t predict what will happen or how they will react. When preparing a reunion, we try to cater to everyone’s taste as much as possible so no one gets disappointed. But remember the important thing is to keep the setting casual, comfortable and fun.

Table Setting Ideas:

Hold A Charity Event

Cami Cap Sleeve Cutout Maxi Dress


Sometimes, we get involved with organizations that sponsor charities or we hold charity events out of the goodness of our hearts. It usually involves more logistics, more quantity of food and drinks, and also more socialization as we converse with more people, many of which are important members of society. The key is to wear something comfortable that won’t limit movement.

Table Setting Ideas:

Arrange A Breakfast Buffet

Blue Linen Mini Honey Bunny Wrap Dress Plus


Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, or so it is said. Guests always look forward to a breakfast buffet during stays at hotels or resorts so bringing the same concept for an occasion is just as exciting.
