Outdoor Kitchen

Eliminate the stress of running in and out the house by utilizing your Cambridge outdoor kitchen. This will allow you to enjoy quality time with your guests and take the stress off you as a host. Make some delicious and easy foods right in your outdoor space, so you don't have to worry about cleaning up a mess inside. A platter of crudités and coconut shrimp are always a crowd pleaser. Arrange these foods along the counter space so everyone can easily help themselves!

The drinks are the most important part of any cocktail party. Plan to have a variety of different drinks such as wine, beer, cocktails, and water on hand and ready to serve. Design a streamlined bar to make serving easier and hassle-free. Mix up a large batch of Holiday Sangria or mulled wine your guests can enjoy throughout the night. If you're feeling creative, experiment with different flavors and make some unique holiday cocktails. Drinks such as boozy hot chocolate, Hot Buttered Rum Batter, and spiked Irish-Cream are all fun choices! Also make sure to include some non-alcoholic drinks such as mocktails and juice.
