Hello fellow Bon Vivant! I want to take the opportunity to explain what my upcoming subscription service, Every Day Fete, is all about. Let’s go!
My goal for my Every Day Fete is to give fellow Bon Vivants an opportunity to spread their wings. This is great for someone who want to elevate their cooking and entertaining game. These tools will help empower you to feel more confident.
Perfection is a myth. Normalizing that imperfect can be perfect when it comes to cooking and entertaining. It is ok to make mistakes. As Julia Child used to say, “no one will know just keep going”. If you watch my stories, hear my interviews on podcast or watch my reels, you will see that I reference this goal on a consistent basis. Why are we so scared to be vulnerable in our own homes?
One of the hangups that a lot of folks have about entertaining specifically is that they feel it needs to be “perfect”. Friends, there is only one Martha Stewart and that’s not you! There was a stigma about entertaining that everything has to be perfect. I’m here to tell you it couldn’t be any further from the truth. Let’s learn to embrace our ability to be an individual and have our own flair.
By joining this subscription service, you will receive once a month themed fete.
This will consist of a menu, corresponding printable recipes, a timeline, grocery list, videos, and pictures of ideas of how to style your table/buffet, a Spotify playlist to coordinate with the theme and some ambience tips.
Let’s start with the menu. Each month will have a theme and I will coordinate a menu in that vein. Now, you can decide that you do not want to throw a party that month. That’s fine! You can use these recipes as a stand alone. When you join you will receive a list of pantry staples that you should have on hand. Every month you will receive the grocery list built off of that set of recipes. Staples will not be on your grocery list so as long as you maintain your staples, you’ll be able to use that grocery list efficiently.
The timeline will be geared towards having the party and serving all of the things suggested on the menu. If you choose not to serve something on the menu, then you simply go through the checklist and cross that off as if it’s already been completed. A timeline is key. It is how I keep myself on task and make sure that I am a happy and relaxed host when my guests arrive. I find that this is one of the more challenging things for people to do that are not used to this type of system so it being given to you already built, will help eliminate that hassle for you.
The table styling ideas will be simply that, ideas. Please do not think that you need to go and purchase new things for every party. Resources will be given to you via links if you choose to make some purchases but it is not a must. I like to use a lot of organic and natural materials in my table stylings ie fruit, nuts, pinecones, etc. Keeping it simple by having plain cloth napkins, that you can use for different seasons or themes, is a great way to start building your collection. This is not meant to break the bank. If it’s something you enjoy and have the ability to invest in table linens, I highly recommend it.
Ambience makes all the difference in the world when having guests in your home. I like to have candles, lit, and music playing when my guests arrive. The Spotify playlist will be curated to coordinate with that monthly theme. You do not have to have a Spotify membership to enjoy these selections and they are available after that month has ended.
Now that I have spilled the tea on all the details of being a member of every day fete are you ready to join? When you join, you will receive a free sample of what the monthly subscription will look like. It will be a “Simple Dinner Party”. If you are interested, please tap here, and join the email distribution list.
Once it is released for sign up, you will receive an email linking you directly to sign up and provide your payment information. If you purchase a years subscription you will receive $10 off. A whole years worth of parties for $50!
I hope you will join me in celebrating life with Every Day Fete.
