I love infusing silliness into entertaining.
While I think it’s beautiful to set a proper table with vintage china, crystal and silverware, I’ve also used my mother in law’s silver tea service tray to present shots I named “Who you callin’ a ho-ho-ho?” to Christmas party guests.
So many people stress themselves out trying to achieve a manufactured notion of perfection at the holidays, but my ideal tends more toward making people laugh.
