My name is Beth, and I love planning and hosting fun, casual friend gatherings. It’s not my career (I have an office day job), but it’s what I love to do. It’s what fills my tank outside of work. Someday I’d love to maybe own an AirBnB property where I’d get to host guests all the time! In the meantime, I enjoy opportunities to host friends and family in our home on the weekends. We recently put a pool in our backyard and turned it into our own little resort-like oasis, so now we have even more reason to invite guests over!
Over the years, having hosted many fun events (class reunions, girls’ weekends, grad parties, Christmas parties, neighbor gatherings… you name it!), I have amassed an impressive collection of delicious recipes, amazing cocktails, and fun party theme ideas. I’m starting this blog – “Host It Notes” – as a way to share my passion for hosting and let you in on the secrets I’ve learned and the tried-and-true recipes I’ve served over the years…as well as any new ones I discover!
If you’re looking for fancy…if you’re the caviar and black-tie kind of party thrower, then this blog probably isn’t for you (although you are most certainly welcome here!). My vibe is definitely more casual and laid-back fun. So if that sounds like you, like something you’d enjoy, or even something you’re aspiring toward – come join me on this new adventure I’m calling “Host It Notes”, I’d LOVE to have you along!
Fair warning though – I’m writing about things I love, so there may be an above-average number of exclamation points in my text!
