Easter weekend is finally here - a little later this year in fact, but four whole days of lazy lunches, boozy brunches, and leisurely dining. Plus, with the longer (and slightly sunnier) days there's even the hopeful chance of a little alfresco aperitif! Here at One World we love any excuse to seasonally spruce up our homes, wheel out the drinks cart, and get creative with our menu so we thought we'd share a few Easter entertaining tips.
First impressions count – Lotte Van Reyson – Account Manager
It’s the little touches that really matter when entertaining… like putting your fluffiest hand towels in the cloakroom or guest bathroom and putting a nice hand soap and hand cream out. I also like to make sure that my guests have everything they need, so if they’re staying over I pop essential toiletries and even the wifi code in their room so they can relax and not feel as if they have to keep asking.
Fill with flowers – Sophie Bensohn – Head of Retail
Easter is a great season for florals. When it comes to entertaining I love to make sure the house is full of spring blooms. Whether that’s a centerpiece for the dining table, a jug of fresh flowers next to the bed for your overnight guests, and little posies dotted around the house.
And, if you don’t have time to tend to fresh flowers then why not consider the low maintenance option of faux. Like these white hydrangeas?
Cocktail hour – Jason Bensohn – Managing Director
I love to experiment with creating cocktails for my guests. I make sure that my drinks trolley is fully stocked and that there are plenty of fresh botanicals for that finishing touch!
And, if you’re looking for a great cocktail for this season then head to the Craft Gin Club for some gin-inspired tipples.
Good glassware – Jamie Bensohn – Commercial Director
As well as making sure the cocktails are flowing it’s nice to ensure that your guests have good and solid glassware to drink out of. A drink always tastes better when it’s in a nice glass. From champagne flutes to cocktail glasses, make sure your glassware is gleaming!
The host/ess with the most/ess – Kate Humphreys – Sales Manager
Don’t forget to relax and enjoy yourself… a good host/ess should be well prepared, and usually armed with a glass of their favourite wine whilst cooking. I find it helps to relax me and join in the fun whilst I’m busy cooking up a storm.
