When you're hosting a dinner party and you're the cook, jewelry can become a challenge. You want to look your best, but rings and bracelets can get caked in ingredients. And, necklaces can take unintentional dives in that perfect casserole as you're checking it in the oven. What is a woman to do?
I was recently reading an amazing book on entertaining. The Charleston Academy of Domestic Pursuits is a treasure trove of amazing insights to entertaining. One gem from the book that I want to share is the secret jewelry tip that is a must for hostesses. Earrings!
Yes, earrings. Big, statement earrings. When you're cooking for a special event, this is the one jewelry item that is safe from all things cooking. They add to your glamour and will dress up your outfit without getting caked in sauces and flour. They are your safe choice to be a dazzling chef while serving up that traditional secret family recipe to all of your guests.
Pick the earrings that you don't wear often because they're a statement piece all their own and don't pair well with your necklaces and other jewelry. Now is their time to shine! Skip everything else and let them have their day.
You can dress to impress and be neat and clean while cooking. With just a little planning and forethought, you can let your inner diva reign and utilize those special jewelry pieces that don't get to shine on a regular basis.
Hopefully this tip helps you at your next party! What is your go-to jewelry when you host dinners? You can purchase The Charleston Academy of Domestic Pursuits here.
