Creative Entertaining with Nestea Iced Tea

Do you like to entertain? Are you really creative with your menu and your décor? With all these amazing DIY ideas floating around on Pinterest it’s easy to feel inspired right? Well, in my case – it’s very intimidating! On the rare occasion I do entertain it’s usually for family or just a couple of friends – I also stick to the basics especially on the food and drink front.

A fun fact about me – I LOVE iced tea so if I’m in charge of drinks you can bet iced tea will be on hand 😉 . Told you – the basics! I was however blown away with how creative entertaining could be with Nestea Iced Tea when I was invited to an event they hosted.

The event took place on a really rainy afternoon at Lisa Marie restaurant where we were served up yummy eats also infused with Nestea Iced Tea to compliment all the creative drinks.

Because I don’t drink alcohol all my drinks were non-alcoholic versions but I was told the alcoholic ones were quite delicious 🙂
