Entertain or Else!

"A good party is not about the food, it's about the people."  And, that's a quote from Ina Garten.  So, c'mon people - let's party.  After the shindig a couple of days ago - laughing hysterically, dancing like a mad woman...










And certainly NOT a good dancer, I want more...FUN in the everyday.  There's a great little book entitled, "Nesting-It's a Chick Thing"  with a gazillion party ideas, themes, recipes, antidotes.  It's perfect for your Entertainer Friend. 

The economy stinks; people are losing jobs, losing their shirts in some cases.  I think we need to open our doors....bring people into our homes.  If money is an issue; don't let that deter you.  Throw some hot dogs on the grill.  It does not matter WHAT is on the menu.  It's about the people.  If perfection is your stronghold and your house isn't perfect (to you!)....we won't notice.  I promise.  Throw everything into a closet, use a Swiffer, spray some Pledge throughout the home.  Voila - Party Central.

Let's start a movement shall we?  Share your ideas - what works for you, what's easy for you.  Entertain or else!

Love this! I went to a cooking class a couple of weeks ago and the chef said, "even if it doesn't turn out, tell everyone how much you love your rolls flat just like your mama used to make them." She said everyone will love them, and not know. But if you complain, they'll feel bad, and that isn't the goal. So that's my ten cent advice for partay finesse, which you do so well, my friend!
