Observation about entertaining
We have been to two great parties in the last several weeks....about 40-50 at each. The weather was beautiful at each one and people were mostly outside enjoying the yards and fresh air; however, at each party there was only enough outside seating for 10 people at the most. One had a table and chair set on the deck and a few scattered chairs and benches on the lawn. The other one had maybe 6 chairs on the patio.
Yes, people are always milling about at these functions and there will always be clusters of people standing and chatting, but it would be nice for hosts to plan more seating, even if it means borrowing or renting chairs. Most people work in offices and are not used to long periods standing, especially those of us getting up there in age. I woke this morning and my feet and ankles are sore from mostly standing all evening, and I was in comfortable sandals.
Is it just me or have others noticed this as well?
