Parties, Get Togethers, You Name It!

I love parties! There is just something about hosting a get together that makes me all giddy inside. I love coming up with any excuse to have a party. Whether it is a gridiron getogether, kid's birthday party, 4th of July, Christmas- you name it, I love parties! That is not to say that I don't turn into a troll a good 6 hrs. before the party- I mean, there is always a lot to do and I have no clones! I just really enjoy the planning, deciding on the menu, (I do not recommend this on an empty stomach!), to making the floral arrangements.

I didn't realize my true passion for this until the other night, after I hosted our G.N.O.'s annual ornament exchange party. I was washing the dishes, ( if you can afford two dishwashers, I highly recommend purchasing them), when it occurred to me how happy I felt seeing other people enjoying themselves at my expense. That is not to be taken as arrogance on my part, simply that all the work I had put into the party was well worth the happiness and enjoyment I saw in those ladies. Then I began to think, I'm not a professional, just an average, ordinary mom who happens to enjoy pleasing others palates! I hope I will be able to give you all some great tips on how to have fun get togethers and I will even throw in some recipes to help get you through. Tomorrow, I'll let you in on this year's ornament exchange party and give you the full menu and recipes. See you then!
