(NC) - Summer is finally here! It's entertaining season and everyone is looking for ways to make their party unique. Nir Adar, food stylist for Häagen-Dazs, offers 10 great tips to make you a party host like no other.
Pick a theme.
Go global. Try something new and select foods and decorations to show off your jet-set party hosting style.
Think of food as art.
Colourful ingredients, contrasting textures, and imaginative arrangements create a feast for the eyes as well as the palate.
Go online and save time.
Create a signature drink.
Give the wine cellar a break and create a drink that is all your own! Don't be afraid to be creative with fine ingredients and top-notch spirits!
Don't forget the designated driver.
Non-alcoholic doesn't have to mean non-interesting. Include easy, delicious drink options without alcohol as well.
Keep it simple, easy... and elegant.
Take advantage of the season! Use fresh and pure ingredients.
If you cut back on calories don't cut back on taste.
Häagen-Dazs 97% Fat-Free frozen yogourts, smoothies and sorbets are loaded with fruit pieces and purees - the uncompromising and indulgent taste without the guilt!
Life is too short, start with dessert!
It's summer! Why not build your party around dessert instead of dinner? Just try ice cream as an hors d'oeuvre.
Don't forget to invite the neighbours.
They won't complain about the noise if they're with you!
Be prepared to be popular.
Once you've established yourself as a party guru, don't be surprised when people stop by all the time. Premium ice cream with fresh berries or a liqueur makes a quick elegant dessert for last-minute guests.
