Do you put guests to work at your parties?
I grew up in a house where usually just my mom did all the party cleanup and it was almost always after all the guests left. My parents have a very, very small kitchen and my mom seemed embarrassed to have people see it.
Now that I'm married and have been to my in-laws house dozens of times, I am amazed at how my MIL usually gets everyone "involved" in the party cleanup and by the time guests are leaving has the whole kitchen clean. It took me quite awhile before I learned to relax and open the kitchen drawer for a dish towel...always felt like I was intruding!!
Do you get your guests involved? Or do you prefer to clean up on your own?
