I would start by advising you let experts help you in everything-especially, when it comes to organizing home parties. If you have ever tried to plan for one, then definitely you will agree with me that one of the most overlooked part is cutlery. In most cases, the preparation is usually focused on food, drinks and other related stuff. If you do not think outside the box you’ll find it pretty difficult to get that food on the table.
Last year, I decided to to celebrate my 27th birthday at my spacious back yard. In order to bring the total costs down I did all the planning by myself. I had also asked my dear aunt Mary and cousin Larry to help me out with the cooking. I made this decision based on the fact that both had previously worked in the hotel and hospitality industry-and so, I believed everything would come out great. However, I was dead wrong! I just wish I had taken time to read these kitchen knives set reviews.
I will not go into the nitty-gritty’s of what really happened, but I remember before the big day we had the tables set and also arranged flowers. The weather was great, too. Aunt Mary and Larry with his team were to get at work at night, so that early morning everything would be in place. When I was asked about the knives to be used I hurriedly produced what to me was my best collection.
It’s here that everything went wrong and there was panic spread across their faces. There is little time left, and there is no good knife. What I had could not be used by their “professional” team, neither could they help in any way. It’s almost 3.00 a.m in the morning and being in the countryside we had little option. If it were not my old neighbor Jane, this could have triggered a chain of really bad events. As we were still debating on what to do, she entered with four trays of knives. I now understand why she had insisted to be on the ‘cooking team”. I had judged her wrongly, but she ended up proving me wrong.
