Make Your Kitchen Ready to Celebrate PI Day!
Every year math enthusiasts everywhere celebrate pi, a celebrity among mathematical constants, on March 14 (3/14), also known as Pi Day.
Pi is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter and is an irrational number, continuing infinitely without repeating.
In other words, PI day is another reason to throw a get together or party for your close friends and family! Read on to find some quick and cheap tips to prepare your kitchen for guests!
Have a smaller kitchen?
Let some light in! Lots of natural light enlarges any space. You may have no choice about the number and placement of windows in your kitchen, but you can control the light by not blocking the windows by objects, curtains or blinds.
Allow time to clean up
Eliminate the clutter. Don’t leave the countertops cluttered with mixing bowls and dishes. This will make the coulters look smaller which will inevitably make your kitchen seem smaller and dirty. Also, clean as you go. You don’t want to spend time cleaning at the end of a party cleaning, it will make your guests feel rushed to leave.
Put a collage of photos on the fridge. Place a lamp or vase on the table to draw attention to your kitchen. This will make the space feel more like a home and less like a house creating an inviting, warm atmosphere.
Make room for people
Since you know the party will end up in the kitchen anyway, set up plenty of barstools/chairs in a corner and let your guests make conversation while you cook. This will allow you to be a good host by engaging in conversation as well as welcome everyone while you prep the pies.
Go grocery shopping!
You don’t want to have to make last minute substitutes when baking, especially when food is the reason for the party. Make sure you have enough beverages for adults and kids as well as enough food.
