Spring is in the air! Which means flowers in bloom, outdoor brunches, BBQs, Easter outfits and lots of get-togethers with friends and family. Sometimes you don’t even know people are coming by, so being prepared is key.
Here are some things that I always have on hand incase of a last minute gathering:
- Paper plates and cups – I have learned my lesson with this one. There are few things worse than spending the whole party washing dishes in fear that you will run out.
- Something to throw on the BBQ – It is always good to have something you can grill up on and enjoy together last minute.
- Wine – Or beer if you prefer. This one is obvious 🙂
- Snacks – My favorite is a spread of meat, cheese and Pearls® Specialties Olives. These are perfect for snacking on while socializing with guests.
We have a kitchen island so I like to set out a large cutting board with curated meats, a variety of cheeses, crackers, some sort of spread and lots of Pearls® Specialties Olives! They have such a tasty variety that everyone will find a flavor they love! I really like the Jalapeño Stuffed Pearls® Specialties. They have a good spicy kick to them that I LOVE!
If spicy is not for you, Pearls® Specialties has a variety of flavors like, Pitted Kalamata, Garlic Stuffed Olives, and Blue Cheese Stuffed Olives. All of these flavors are available on Amazon and make the perfect snacks!
