Welcome to The Entertaining House. We do hope you'll pour yourself a cup of tea or a glass of wine and linger for a while!

thank you

for bearing with me as I try out some new looks -- I'm looking for something to better suit my mood, personality and the tone of this blog which reflects me as a mother, wife and fun-loving girl who adores to entertain and be entertained. What do you think of my Frank and Bing link? Does the song make you want to dance? Have a cocktail? Go to a wedding? Get married? It's from one of my all-time favorite movies, High Society which was filmed in Newport. I thought it went well with my header picture from my own wedding at my parents' house in Newport! There is no party like a wedding party!
