Updated: Mar 9
Many of us still want to socialize with good friends and family members.
Of late, that has been more challenging on many different levels. A gathering in your home is certainly a great way to have the control that you need and still have the social life we all crave. But... organizing everything can also be a challenge. We are here to help kick start your planning with a few tips, as well as let you in on an original G Catering Cocktail recipe.
Things you will need to keep you and your guests safer during this time
Hand Sanitizer – Keep a couple of bottles around the house for an easy way to keep your hands clean.
Gloves – disposable gloves are becoming a must-have during these trying times! Keep them by the bar, in the kitchen and outside, for anyone who is making themselves a drink or plate of food.
Disposable Monogrammed Guest Towels – Monogrammed or not, these are perfect for the bathroom. Stash your cotton hand towels and replace them with one-time use alternatives.
Blankets - put out blankets in your backyard or have your guests bring their own! Place them in your backyard to help with social distancing.
