Between work, life, and family, hosting a dinner party seems like a lot of effort.

I’m Kim. Throwing memorable dinner parties wasn’t something I was always good at.

When I first started hosting dinner parties, I was in university. I used to spend far more time and money than I could afford planning and organizing them.

I was good at following recipes and could make things look nice, but I fussed over the tiniest details nobody seemed to notice.

The parties I hosted were fun and my friends seemed to enjoy them (I mean, who doesn’t love a free meal?). But, I always felt broke and exhausted afterward.

I wondered if there was something I could be doing differently.
