Hostess Tips From Grandmas

Moms are great and all, but when you really need to know how to get a stain out or why a recipe isn’t working, nothing beats the advice of a grandma. Grandma has lived through it all and she’s definitely been there and done that, so she knows best. And when it comes to throwing parties, here’s the advice real-life grandmothers gave their granddaughters on being the best hostess.

  • “My grandma always wrote down what she served so that she wouldn’t serve the same thing too often. It also helped her remember exactly what she made for particularly good parties if she wanted to reference them later.” – from grandma Torborg
  • “Homemade bread is easier than it looks and is guaranteed to make your house smell amazing and so welcoming.” – from grandma Anne
  • “Nothing should ever go on the table in the container it came in. For instance mayonnaise or other condiments would always get put in a little bowl. The idea of putting food in Tupperware on the table would’ve had her screaming.” – from grandma Barbara
  • “Go ahead and talk about politics. Let people get fired up. Tame parties are boring parties.” – from grandma Baba
  • “Forget the ‘don't make a recipe for the first time’ rule. If it sounds delicious and you think you can do it, go for it! You probably wouldn't bother making it just for you and your family.” – from grandma Judith
  • “Plan, plan, plan! Make lists of oven temperatures and cooking times to be sure that your oven capacity can accommodate the various recipes you are considering. A timed-out cooking schedule is the best way to get everything done and on the table at the same time.” – from grandma Harriet
  • “Choose types of flowers that have no scent and that won’t dust your table with falling pollen. And if you can, have fruit as a dessert option along with whatever indulgent dessert you might be serving. Berries with a little whipped cream are some comfort if you have to turn down that chocolate cake.” – from grandma Fuj
  • “Always use cloth napkins. For dinner and for cocktails. Paper is for cookouts.” –from grandma Cathryn
  • “You can never have too much wine on hand.” – from grandma Dot
