Schedule a Presentation

Gather a group of friends in your home over coffee or a glass of wine, or gather a larger group in a more public setting, for an Effortless Entertaining presentation. These presentations are at the heart of what DeeDee loves to do.  DeeDee has spoken to nearly 4,000 women across the southeast from Maryland to Texas in private and public events. She is currently scheduling for 2023. She would love to discuss being with your group! Contact DeeDee. 

At an Effortless Entertaining presentation:

  • You and your guests will be inspired with new ideas and equipped with practical strategies for your next dinner party. From how to get everything ready at once to where to find perfect and affordable wine glasses, we cover quite a bit in a short time.
  • We talk about how easy it can be to entertain and how rewarding it is to warmly and graciously welcome others into our homes.
  • We have fun talking about why we want to entertain but, don’t.
  • We laugh about our mishaps . . . and we all have had those!

Effortless Entertaining gatherings are lively, fun, and full of helpful information. Contact DeeDee to talk about your event!

Presentation Guidelines for Hosts

What our guests are saying…

“Thank you for introducing us to your friend Deedee! She is a great speaker, and I loved the way she enlivened her topic with humorous reminisces. I especially valued her pragmatic and ‘user friendly’ approach. What a treat! I am looking forward to implementing some of her creative and practical strategies.”


“WOW! You are simply amazing. You are such a wonderful speaker and we all enjoyed your presentation! ‘Welcome’ certainly seems to describe you as we all felt welcome as you spoke to our group. Thank you for joining us at our meeting and sharing your “Effortless Entertaining” tips and suggestions with our group.”


“I so enjoyed your presentation today at Chatmoss! We had a lovely time and were literally hanging on your every word. So excited that I not only got a book for myself but also for my BFF that was unable to attend.”


“DeeDee – I really loved seeing you so much in Raleigh. That was by far the liveliest thing I have ever attended at the Haywood Hall. A great event and so good to witness your spunk and talent!”


“I can’t tell you how many comments I received on your presentation. You were a BIG hit!! Everyone I saw after your event raved about you. A huge hit!”


“I just want to add my gratitude to the many fine comments following your presentation at Gulf Stream’s Lunch and Learn Series last week. I understand you filled our Covid-limited terrace with your wit, charm, grace, and fabulous ideas for entertaining!”


“WOW! What a dynamic event you put on for our precious garden club today! It was without a doubt the best program we have ever had. Tomorrow I board a plane to visit our son. He’s throwing a dinner party for me, and little does he know I’m coming extremely well equipped to help!”


“I was inspired by your talk to offer a ‘welcome drink’ when guests arrived. Remembering the Watermelon Margaritas we had enjoyed in Colorado, I blended frozen watermelon chunks into Prosecco and served in champagne glasses. It was so easy!”
