Spring is here and in full swing! Yippie. One of my favorite things to do this season is entertain. I love hosting small gatherings on my balcony or patio. Inviting over the people is the easy part; it’s the menu and preparation that can be tiresome.


With my busy schedule, I try to make gatherings as simple as possible. Planning ahead always helps. Here are five steps I use to host a successful spring gathering:

  1. Choose a theme. Spring to me means bright patterns and colors, light and clean foods.
  2. Create a food menu. A spring themed menu calls for outdoor festivities such as grilling, salads, and light dips like guacamole.  
  3. Create a cocktail menu. Spring cocktails remind me of margaritas.
  4. Proper timing of food and drinks is a must.
  5. Entertain and serve!

The perfect spring dip and beverage combination to serve is guacamole and margaritas. With RO*TEL’s Rockin’ Guac and Bud Light Lime-A-Ritas, hosting can be easy breezy. Cool cans of Bud Light Lime-A-Ritas and easily prepare the guacamole the same day. With a few fresh ingredients along with RO*TEL’s perfect blend of tomatoes and green chilies, the guacamole will be ready in no time
