Pizza Party Open House

Hawaiian BBQ Pizza
Have you ever invited friends and family over for an open house gathering? Did you love it or in the long run was it too difficult to put together?

While an open house get-together sounds casual and easy to execute, it can be daunting when it comes to menu planning. Having plenty of (hot) food available for guests arriving at different times can easily create chaos in the kitchen.

However, with careful planning and a pleasing menu, an open house celebration might become one of your favorite ways to entertain.

  1. Wow! What a terrific post, Cathy! You covered the bases and all of your tips are spot on. Planning ahead and having a menu everyone will enjoy is essential for a successful event. LOVE the Sangria and/or Bloody Mary bar ideas! Thanks for sharing, girl, and have a great weekend!

  2. I did have an open house party … I served hot (in crock pots) and cold appetizers and made sure there was plenty of drinks available. My friends love finger food and cold beverages. Everyone was happy!

    A pizza party sure does sound fun though. Pancetta on pizza with caramelized onions and topped with arugula when it comes out might be my favorite pizza toppings ever.
