{dinner parties} ~ our housewarming/labour day dinner















Things that helped this 15 people dinner party go well:
1. I set the two tables the night before
2. We had organic grilled vegetables, pulled pork and curried lamb catered
3. We had hors d'oeuvres (organic!), ice cream, pie, fruit and lettuce delivered
the day before.  
4. Mr. Husband and I did detailed meal planning
5. Two carafes of lemon wedges in water per table
6. Cheese Pizza and Doritos for the kids 
7. Wonderful dinner guests and two happy kids!
