In general, we're big fans of entertaining here at The Kitchn. We love to have friends over for dinner, or to throw a cocktail party, or even cater a wedding. But how about you? How often do you entertain? Once a week? Once a moth? Once a year? Never?

Sometimes the reason for not having people over is as simple as not having enough silverware or there's never any parking in the neighborhood. And other times it's more complicated: parties are expensive, or our homes are a private place for retreat. And sometimes it's because we just don't know how. Entertaining should look effortless but we all know there's a lot of frantic paddling going on beneath the surface.  

Why don't you entertain more often?
