There is no mistaking that I enjoy easy entertaining. Because I obsess about all the details, I’ve been working on keeping food light and “no-fuss”. When you focus on small bites, it’s also great for guests. It leaves more time to talk. After all, the real point of entertaining is to connect, inspire fun, and engage with our friends. Casual gatherings give you an opportunity to have fun with entertaining too. No need to obsess over big menus and utensils. Remember the reason for the occasion.
One of my “no fuss” recipes involves combining light food along with some of my favorite wine. Wine can be expensive and that’s one of the reasons I like The Dreaming Tree wines. Dreaming Tree makes high quality, delicious wines at an affordable price point. This allows you to buy multiple bottles of wine to entertain guests and provide a variety too.
The Dreaming Tree recently added a new red blend to their wine selection – The Dreaming Tree Crush. Red blends are always safe for everyone’s palette. For variety, always offer another option like a Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, or my favorite – Cabernet Sauvignon. I bought my Dreaming Tree wines at my local supercenter, but I have also found it at my local grocery and drugstores. To find where you can buy it – visit their website and type in your zip code. It’s easy!
If the weather is still pleasant in your area, then grab a bar cart and get outside! Enjoy the land around you while you connect with those you care about. It’s super-relaxing too and that’s important for everyone present. Since summer is so hot in Louisiana, we enjoy cool fall days. The Dreaming Tree is also passionate about nature. They are committed to protecting and restoring tree and forestry areas across the globe. So when you’re drinking The Dreaming Tree, you’ll too feel good that this is a brand that is committed to sustainability.
One thing I enjoy about using a bar cart to entertain is you can take it wherever you need. It has wheels and shelves so you can display and style the necessities. The bar cart gives your guests a “one-stop” destination for their food and drink needs. Here’s how you pull off the same recipe.
Cheese and Snack Tray
- Fresh Fruit
- BOOMCHICKAPOP butter popcorn
- BBQ Kettle Chips
- Salted Cashews
- Pepperoni Wrapped Mozzarella
- Wash and prepare any fruit for serving.
- Place popcorn, chips, and nuts in separate bowls or serving containers.
- On a serving tray, place pepperoni wrapped mozzarella, crackers, and fruit together.
- Place serving tray and bowls all on bar cart or table. Display food in a tight-knit area to encourage snacking.
Enjoying friends doesn’t have to be a big deal. Combining a cheese / snack tray recipe, along with a few of your favorite The Dreaming Tree wines, is “no fuss” entertaining. It also provides the perfect opportunity to connect with friends.
