On Wednesday I began my Supper Club preparations. I set the table, prepped as much of the food as possible, cleaned the house and hid all of the baby stuff to get ready. Our dinner date happened to land just a few days after Valentine's Day so I was able to score 4 bouquets of flowers on sale for $4 each (originally $16 each) for my dining table.
One of the most important things to me about hosting guests is not being stuck in the kitchen cooking and cleaning, but instead actually enjoying my party! So to keep things simple and to make for easy clean up I ordered my favorite disposable plates and disposable forks a few days beforehand from Amazon. I already had everything else on hand from previous dinner parties so the tablescape was a breeze.
For the Strawberry Shortcakes I cubed a cream cheese pound cake (from the freezer section), added some diced strawberries (tossed in turbinado sugar), topped with whipped cream and repeated the layers to fill the glass.
