I absolutely love to play host; and though I'm constantly inviting people into my home, I live in a very small, 3 bedroom-1 bath house. I have a tiny kitchen and one living room/dining room combo. I've learned a thing or 2 about home entertaining during my younger years from watching my mom throw parties (in fact, many of the tips below include pieces of advice I learned from observing her flawless hostessing skills), but I've probably learned even more during the 2 years I've spent in my petite house learning to navigate party-planning entirely on my own terms.
I will be the first one to admit that Starbucks has a hold on me. While I can just as easily make a cup of joe at home or support a small local cafe when I am in need of my daily dose of caffeine, I will always pick the option that involves my favorite green mermaid lady. And that constant Starbucks itch that I need to scratch is shamelessly heightened around the holidays.
