Paella Party!

Celebrate warm summer nights at home with a bring-your-own-plate paella party


Published:

Nothing says summer quite like entertaining at home al fresco. When your guests arrive, escort them to the courtyard or garden where you’ve placed a large pot of steaming paella center stage on a long family-style table. Carafes of sangria will add pops of color and let your guests serve up their own goblets of summery delight. As the scent of saffron-infused paella fills the air, the sangria will fuel the fun. Add the melodic sounds of Spanish music and the scene will be set for a long magical evening.
