Want to entertain like country music legend Martina McBride? She’s sharing all her party secrets with Rachael!
Before the party even starts, you need to get people excited. Martina shares a tip she used for her “Red Wine and Vinyl” party. She wrote the invitation right on old 45 records!
Tip: When repurposing records to make your invites, make sure the records you are using are not rare and valuable!
Snack: Smoked Paprika Almonds
If you need something to set out for guests to munch on as soon as they arrive, this smoked paprika almond recipe is perfect. And for a few minutes of work, you’ll save boatloads compared to similar nuts you’d find in a gourmet market.
Tip: If you double (or even triple) the batch, you can bag some up to send home with your guests.
Appetizer: Goat Cheese and Honey Crostini
Martina toasts baguette slices in the oven with a little olive oil, then spreads them with tangy, mellow goat cheese and a topping of walnuts, rosemary, thyme and honey. Your guests will never leave if you make them this!
Dessert: Portable S’mores
Martina sets up a portable S’mores station all the fixings and Sterno cans in a bucket so that the guests can toast their marshmallows. Brilliant!
