In pursuit of a simple, fabulous, imperfect life at home.

{Simple Hospitality, Day 16} Planning with Sticky Notes

I love sticky notes for  organizing.  I keep packs of them all around my  house for various tasks. Hosting get-togethers is no exception!

I like to use them to sort out what I will serve each part of a meal on and in. I make a note for each menu item and then find a vessel for each note and set it on the buffet the night before.  That way, as foods come out of the oven and are ready to be served you know exactly where to put them! No more last minute panic because there's no dish for the mashed potatoes!

I also use them for my last minute to-do list when I'm making a number of different recipes.  It can be hard to keep track of everything that needs to be done and in what order, and miniature notes on the fridge can easily be rearranged if things don't go as planned.  When all the notes are gone from the fridge, I know I'm all set!

This is day 16 (several days late!) in a series about simple hospitality.  Click here to see more.

  1. I normally don't use sticky notes, but I like the "timeline on the fridge" sticky note idea for more complex meals. I think I'll actually do this for Christmas!

  2. You are one of only about five blogs I regularly read. Loving this series! :D

  3. HELP, please!!!! I am looking for your tutorial for a wraparound car seat blanket.
