Party Planning



I can't believe that 2007 is coming to a close, so much to be thankful for this past year! And so much to reflect on for the coming year. If you are planning a New Years Party here are some tips on staying organized (this also works for basically any party you might be planning):



  • Make a list of everything that has to get done (including your menu for the party)

  • On that list note the times that things need to cooked or started or placed in the oven (for instance - make crab dip AM, put quiche in the oven 6:30)

  • Have the drinks out already so you don't have to fumble in the kitchen for drinks for everyone all night

  • Make sure your champagne is chilled and ready to go

  • Know where your champagne flutes are in advance or have them out already

  • Make sure you have enough forks, paper goods, ice - ect. before your party begins

  • And be ready an hour before your first guest. (this way you can be finishing up in the kitchen when the arrive, not blow drying your hair)

And don't forget to have fun! It's a party after all! (Oh and drink responsibly!!! It's not you I am worried about, it's the other guys!)

Happy New Year Everyone!
