Gathering can take on many forms and we want to support you in the one that feel right for you. Below, you will find ideas and details to support you in hosting your own Cocktails & Castoffs AT HOME viewing party.
For those who are comfortable gathering in-person, we encourage you to leverage the recipes and offerings shared in your Sweet Harvest Box. This year’s Box comes with a Cocktails & Castoffs AT HOME Cookzine to help you expand your table spread to fit a gathering of any size.
Make sure to test projecting DIG’s GiveLively page in advance to work out any kinks. https://secure.givelively.org/donate/development-in-gardening/cocktails-and-castoffs-at-home-2021
This is a great option for those who can’t gather in person but still want to watch the event together. Mix your cocktails, set your separate tables, then sit down to toast the event together.
This platform is fun if you want to be able to chat with guests while watching the event together.
Zoom does have some drawbacks. The video quality might not be as good as the live feed, and there may be some lag time if you have a slow internet connection. Also, you will need that paid account so your zoom room doesn’t close before the event does.
