Corelle South Beach {GIVEAWAY CLOSED}

Meet Tiffany, the Dinner Party Diva. She’s a Vino Virtuoso and is all-knowing in the art of hosting a fabulous “Tipsy Hostess” dinner party.






Don't you just love her fridge full of wine and the dinner guests dancing on the table? Ho... Hum... Have a look at more Tipsy Hostess antics plus her dinner party tips, on the Tipsy Hostess Facebook Page.

We all know how fabulous Corelle dinnerware is. It’s fine yet tough, timeless yet modern, everyday dinnerware yet perfect for a more formal dinner party.

The secret to the Corelle dinnerware is the lamination process which creates a break and chip resistant glass. This glass is lightweight, yet incredibly strong glass that is oven, microwave and dishwasher safe. Its durability is unmatched.

Inspired by the popular bright colors and contemporary flair of South Beach, Miami, the NEW South Beach pattern is perfect for all of your fun and casual entertaining this summer.

With thanks to Corelle and World Kitchen, one lucky Samelia's Mum reader has the chance to win the ALL NEW and very stylish, Corelle South Beach dinner set.

  1. Do as much of the stressful prep prior to the party, so that during the party you can be a relaxed, sociable host :) If the host sets the right tone for party, everyone will enjoy themselves, which in my opinion is more important than perfecting the food and decorations!

  2. My best tip is to plan ahead. If you plan ahead and have a good time table of when to prep things, then it all comes together easier at the time of the party.

  3. Prepare ahead of time, dont stress if things arent perfect, have a glass of wine, relax and enjoy your guests.

  4. Get everyone involved.. bring a plate (preferably with food on it) .Let them help with prep and dishes. It breaks the ice and people relax quicker.

  5. I always try to choose a menu that I can have everything prepared prior to the guests arriving.

  6. Potluck! I provide the main dish, and everyone brings a side dish. It works great with family, now that the kids are grown and pitch in.

  7. Make sure there is enough food for everyone. At the end of the night, you don't want your guests to leave the party and make a bee line straight for Maccas!

  8. My tip for hosting the best dinner party is make sure you have everything preplanned out and create a comfortable atmosphere for your quests.

  9. Cook something you have successfully cooked before :) And relax, guests take their cue from their hostess!

  10. Do everything you can ahead of time, set the table, prep the food etc. Let guests help you in the kitchen and remember you are supposed to be having fun.

  11. Invite your favourite OCD friends... they would never leave without helping to clean up!

  12. Step out of your comfort zone & have fun. Pull out the recipe books. Go with a theme. Get enthusiastic.

  13. Don't stress too much about the food, everyone would rather there was plenty of everage food, then a tiny amount of awesome food!

  14. Ask everyone to bring a beverage that their family drinks. That way all you have to do is concentrate on the food and all the drinks for the adults and kids are covered.

  15. Make sure you include a variety of foods and really it's better having too much then not enough :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Don't forget the kids! If you'll be hosting children, be sure you have easy activities to keep them busy. Drawing on the table-paper, hula hoops, whatever works for the climate and time of year.

  17. Get as much done before the party as you can. Make things that freeze well. Do dishes as you go.

  18. I still have my Corelle 3pcs set from my 1st marriage 35yrs ago and so tickled that my youngest step daughter has discovered Corelle & loves it just as much as I do. I "might" just "might" give it to her if I win...but thats a pretty big MIGHT. It has served me well for 35yrs.

  19. Start getting prepared earlier in the day so you are not stressed, sweaty and a mess when visitors arrive.

  20. Itemize first menu and then the process so that you have time to prep, cook, serve and be the hostess as well. It is also helpful to have a menu that can be not just prepped but also cooked well ahead.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Prepare ahead for sure...do something easy to you..that you will enjoy making & serving...relax & just Breathe! (can you tell...nothing "Formal" about me...giggle)

  22. I have watched all of Nigella's TV shows and she has it down pat! Plan a menu that wont keep you in the kitchen all night, make the dessert that morning or night before and if it is a new recipe, always try it out first so you don't serve up a failure of a dish

    ReplyDelete
  23. My best tip is to prepare as much as you can the night before. Do all the prep work early! nickijoseph91@gmail.com

  24. I always make sure I have lots of wine and plenty of clean glasses.
    and I always put the cat away so he doesn't get into the hors d'oeuvres.

  25. When planning your menu, avoid too many heavy dishes and think about how they go together. Would you fancy eating quiche, followed by pie, followed by tart? Too much pastry, too much stodge!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Keep it simple. If you wish to show off only do it for one thing. Desert or mains...not both

    ReplyDelete
  27. Preparation, preparation, preparation. Seriously, the more you can do before hand the better - means you can keep the kitchen clean during the party and you can take time to actually sit and enjoy your guests. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Relax, enjoy the good company & let everyone help with the clean up. Many hands make light work & I'd be surprised if anyone minded.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Invite fun, well-matched guests - although isn't that any of your friends?... With great conversation dominating the simplest of meals, the night will always be A WINNER!

  30. Do as much prep as you can before hand.
    When serving do it buffet style so people can choose what and how much they like.
    Have plenty of everything, food wine and fun.
