6 entertaining hacks: How to rock your next hosting gig


Feeling inexperienced in the entertaining domain? No worries! We've got 6 hosting hacks to help you make any event a social success!

Hold a potluck brunch

Potlucks are a genius way to make hosting Sunday brunch a breeze. You can take care of the main with an easy make-ahead breakfast casserole. Think quiche, frittata or a savory tart. Or depending on how many guests you have, try out that fun baking hack where you make individual portions in a muffin tin. 

Then simply ask each guest to bring a side dish of his or her choosing. If they're not so into cooking, have them bring Champagne and orange juice for Mimosas or the ingredients for easy Bloody Marys.

Other good, easy side suggestions: Buttermilk biscuits, muffins, sweet breads (banana, zucchini, etc.), fruit salad, coffee cake, hash browns and maybe a healthy salad to balance all the carbs.
