Call in to speak with the host
Actress Vanessa Bell Calloway has a secret weapon when it comes to holiday entertaining—her mommy! Beverly Bell, whose daughter played Denzel Washington’s wife in Crimson Tide, and appeared opposite Angela Bassett in What’s Love Got to Do with It, offers tips on turning her small, senior-living apartment in a festive venue. “I put a red table cloth along my kitchen countertop and use one end of the counter as the buffet area,” she tells the host of That’s So Very Vanessa. “That works out well because the electrical outlets are right there, so I can plug in all the warmers without having to string extension cords around the dining room. And on the other end of the counter, I set up the bar—bottles, glasses, ice are all right there near the buffet spread.”
It's good to talk.
