The Sisters love to entertain…
In fact, years ago we thought about starting a special events business focusing on children’s birthday parties. Just one of those ideas that never went past the dreaming stages.
We’ve always felt like as long as you are entertaining, you might as well go that extra mile to make it really special for your guests.Â It’s all in the details and they don’t even have to be that hard – just a dose of creativity and a little extra time.
A few tips…

Keep things interesting by varying the heights on serving platters. We love the shrimp piled high in the cast iron skillet .
