It's The Details That Make A Difference (NAPSA) - When hosting at home, whatever the occasion, the end result should leave your guests feeling as though they have had a memorable evening, while not exhausting the host. A carefully chosen menu and some advance attention to detail can mean a satisfying experience for you as well as your guests.
The ambiance can be heightened by adding thoughtful details. Place votive candles throughout the house and keep them unscented, except for the bathroom. If possible, change lightbulbs to a low-wattage, soft-pink bulb. The hue is very flattering to everyone's complexion. Play music during cocktails and after dinner as the meal should stand alone. Flower arrangements are best kept simple as your guests are the main attraction.
As guests arrive and to avoid "first drink" congestion at the bar, have trays of wine or S.Pellegrino(r) Sparkling Natural Mineral Water or Acqua Panna(r) Natural Spring Water, an elegant addition to any evening. S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna are delightful complements to selected wines, and enhance the flavor of any food.
On the day of the affair, allow yourself ample time prior to the event to address final details, organize the menu and prepare for your company.
Here's one cocktail you may care to serve:
Shake vodka, raspberry liqueur, and pineapple juice over ice and strain into a chilled martini glass, top with S. Pellegrino and garnish with lemon twist.
