Episode 35: Stress-Less Entertaining with Lauren Kelp

May 15, 2017

As the weather begins to brighten up, we find ourselves with a hankerin’ for some entertaining. A long table set up outside, some fresh flowers and your favorite cocktail. Sounds lovely, right?

The fact of the matter is that entertaining can oftentimes feel a tad bit overwhelming and stressful, but we don’t think it has to be that way. Today we’re hanging out with the fabulous Lauren Kelp of LaurenKelp.com talking all about a less stressful approach to Spring entertaining.

From simple strategies like having enough seating for your guests to hang and relax to creating a playlist to set the vibes, Lauren shares her entertaining philosophy and how she hosts without all the fuss and stress. One of our favorite aspects of her philosophy is her focus on creating community, breaking bread together and maybe even making a new friend of two, not so much about presenting the perfect table scape or menu.

This is the perfect episode to help inspire you to get your favorites together for some much needed laughter, community and delicious eats!

You can find more entertaining and simple living tips from Lauren over on LaurenKelp.com, Tablemakers and Instagram.
