Staying Organized While Hosting Dinner Parties

Thanks to Calphalon for sponsoring this post! Please know all opinions are my own and I only share with you what I truly believe in and love!

Now that it’s October I’ve started to think about all the dinner parties and holiday gatherings we will be planning. These can be exciting times and also very stressful!

While my list of recipes is long, what’s longer is the list of how to keep my kitchen organized during all of this. I find it easier to cook up my best recipes in a clean and functional kitchen. It decreases my stress, makes things easier to find and helps shorten clean-up times. A lot of the time we tend to get so distracted from the actual meal we are preparing because we are too busy cleaning up after ourselves and that can be a disaster waiting to happen.

I’d love to share some helpful tips on how to make hosting a dinner party easier for you and enjoyable!

  • Always read your recipe fully before starting to cook, this will decrease the “what now” and rushing to read it while the garlic is burning in the pan.
  • Prep your veggies and meats before heating anything to avoid burning oil or pans.
  • Listen to something that relaxes you.
  • Always have appetizers ready before the party arrives so people are content and you feel less rushed/stressed to finish your meal if you haven’t already.
  • Keep the kids distracted if there are kids around.
  • Clean as you go, That means wipe down constantly, and load the dishwasher as you finish meal prepping and cooking. This will keep your space clean, so moving on to enjoying your meal is that much faster.

It’s also very helpful if you are cooking with high-quality pots and pans that double as a serving platter. With the Calphalon Premier™ Space Saving Cookware you’re getting the highest quality tools, expertly crafted and designed to bring the best out of every meal! I love having the best cookware in my kitchen. It’s the best thing ever that this set won’t clutter your cupboard space!

Here are two of my favorite tips he provided Calphalon on how to save space in the kitchen!

  1. Take the time to organize -­‐ Take one hour to pull out all of your cookware and assess what you actually use and what may be awkwardly taking up space in your cabinets.The new Calphalon Premier Space Saving Cookware Sets provide you with all the cookware essentials you’ll need. All the pots and pans stacked in any order*, saving valuable cabinet space.
