Help for a rookie hostess
My husband and I own a small business, and are hosting a holiday party for our employees at our home. I am not a born hostess, and fret over this responsibility. I would like an easy menu, with many make ahead, tried and true, fool-proof, menu items as possible. Even a time-table (2 days before, day before, etc.) I have two small children, and I have to work around their demanding schedules of eating/playing/napping.
My mother did not enjoy entertaining, and almost never did. Therefore, I never "witnessed" the basics of hostessing. Perhaps I can prove a different example for my own daughter!
How about (in addition to the menu...) a Top 5 Hostess Musts...
