Celebrate Thanksgiving in the best way

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The traditional Thanksgiving, a date to share with your family and give thanks to God for all the blessings received. We take this season to give you some tips on what to do to celebrate and enjoy it to the fullest.

First: Choose the menu in advance. In general, you should include turkey with the traditional stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, vegetables, salads and desserts.

Make purchases in advance. As always we recommend, not to leave things for the last minute, remember that it’s a big holiday and many supermarkets will be closed. Keep in mind everything you need to plan, and go out to buy with anticipation.

Prepare the meal. You don’t have to do all the food the day of the celebration. You can advance the most complicated so you just have to bake the easiest and enjoy your day!

Decorate your home. Crafts are always a good option for this season, and if you want to be original but you don’t have much skills with your hands or the time to do it, you can also create a festive atmosphere with aromatic flowers, and a simple but elegant decoration.

Reflect on the reason for this day. This is a good opportunity for each member of your family to express the reasons why they feel grateful and demonstrate the love they feel for each one.

Make a solidarity activity that allows you to help the less fortunate. Offer to attend a shelter and help to prepare the Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless. If your conditions do not allow it, simply donate canned goods, clothes, toys, or make a monetary donation to show your gratitude.

Remember that the purpose of this celebration is quite spiritual. Live your thanksgiving in the best way!

Protocol on the table

By | Uncategorized | No Comments
When you have a banquet, doubts and insecurities usually arise about how to behave at the table, the rules and protocols to follow will make you look good at any time. We know that this is a real test and that’s why today we teach you a little bit more.
  • The napkin marks the beginning of everything:once you are located at the table, you should pose the napkin on your legs, avoiding sudden movements. You do not use it as a bib for anything in the world, and if you must get up for some reason, leave it on the right side of the plate, but make sure it is not fully extended or scattered.
  • Cutlery:must be placed in order of use from the outside in. Once you finish each dish, the hosts or waiters will pick them up and you can proceed to the next, so that you always have the cutlery right next to the hand you are going to use them with.
  • The language of cutlery:there are several theories, however, we are inclined to leave them on the plate without touching the table (one at 20:00 and the other at 16:00, as clockwise), when you have to take a break. While, at the end, they should be grouped in parallel in these bands, so that it is much easier for the waiter to remove the plate.
  • Never take the knife to your mouth!That is the job of the fork.
  • The bread protocol:if there is a knife near the basket, it is because there is butter to spread. The bread should never be chopped on the table with a knife, it must be done with the hand. That feeling of slicing the delicious bread, leave it for less informal moments.
  • Do not lean your elbows on the table:only the forearms and hands are allowed to support. Although most of the time we use only one hand to bring food to our mouths, the other should always be visible on the table.
  • Decent snacks!Remember that the amount of food you bring to your mouth should be proportional to the size of your mouth. You should never take giant bites, and of course, remember to chew and swallow and then take the next one. Never, never, read well: NEVER SPEAK WITH A FULL MOUTH.
  • The use of toothpicks:finally, after a good taste, it is time to cleanse yourself, but never do it in front of everyone at the table. For that there’s a bathroom.
Now you are ready to attend a banquet without the fear of making mistakes. Go with confidence!

Choose the perfect furniture for your event

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

When you are in the process of organizing an event, you can pass a thousand ideas through your head, but it is important that you always keep in mind the clear objectives you wish to achieve. It is not enough for the place to look beautiful, it must also be comfortable and functional. Remember that people stay in a place when they feel comfortable.

So that everything is well organized and you manage to project harmony between the elements, you can divide the space into areas and consider the needs of each one. For example:

  • Food area:there you can locate a large or elongated table with some decorative ornaments or subtle flowers, but giving enough space to the most important thing: food. In this way you will achieve that your guests can choose their sandwiches without risk of accidents.
  • Coexistence area:this space dedicated to rest and comfort should create an atmosphere conducive to pleasant conversations, supported by illuminated tables, chairs or poufs, lamps and of course, a clear field of vision so as not to interfere in the contact of people.
  • Show area:if the event carries out a show or recreational moment, it requires special furniture such as stage, seats, dance floor, lights, tent, awning, etc. Everything will depend on the type of celebration.

Once you define the concept of your event well, get to work! You will see that everything flows easier.
