Hosting a get-together for my friends is one of my favorite things to plan. Whether to celebrate a holiday, a new season or just finding a reason to all get together, making the time with my friends to catch up is so important to me. That’s why I love to rely on companies like Harry & David to help make hosting stress-free and most importantly, delicious!
Harry & David’s newest collection is Harry & David Gourmet, which includes distinctive gourmet fare, created for everyday entertaining with elegance and ease. From entrees to desserts to easy apps, there are more than 200 premium products to easily to mix and match into any social gathering, gifts or everyday! Plus the products range from $10 to $400, so you can find something to serve at any price!
For my fall dinner party, I chose items that were seasonally delicious, like Sundried Tomato Truffle Mac & Cheese, Puff Pastry Pizzas and a Cranberry and Pear Galette, and also easy to pop into the oven before my friends arrived. Another element I love to add to every party is an eye catching cheese board. Not only do they make a favorite for everyone to share on their Instagram, but it’s always a delicious crowd pleaser. I ordered the Charcuterie & Cheese Assortment and then just added my own crackers and fruit and in under 10 minutes, had a gorgeous cheese board to serve!
Another key element to any get together is something to sip on and sparkling wine is a must to celebrate with! Bright and refreshing, the new Harry & David Sparkling Wine includes light citrus aromas, notes of crisp apple and pear (perfect for fall!) and just a hint of fresh grapefruit for an elegantly clean finish. Best of all, it pairs well with smoked meats and seafood, creamy cheeses and savory breads, which all fall menus are filled with!
The most important aspect to any party is spending time with your guests. Being able to easily throw delicious dishes in the oven and serve without stressing about a messy kitchen or prepping for hours makes hosting fun and a breeze!
