We’re expecting about 30 people at our holiday party on Friday. I like that number because that means there will be enough guests for everyone to know someone else here– & to meet someone new as well. But it does mean that there is a lot of planning going on around here. To wit, I’ve started living a list-centric life.
At first I was scribbling little lists every which way on scraps of paper, but I kept misplacing the scraps of paper. No surprise. I tend to be a bit scattered to begin with.
But being smarter than the average
bean bear, I decided to designate one of our clipboards as my own. Then I purloined a pad of legal paper from Zen-Den, Esq. Putting these two items together I created The Official Party Planning List. ‘Tis a wonderful document– that I suspect only makes sense to me.
I’ve also decided that post-it notes are my new BFF. I write what food I want to be in a certain serving bowl/plate/platter and then put the post-it in/on/under the item so that when my helper elves arrive pre-party they’ll know what to put where. I feel very managerial.
And on that upbeat note, I’m off to the Kroger to buy a heaping cartload of ingredients to make yumminess. Which will go into/onto the aforementioned serving bowls/plates/platters. Which have already been given assigned spots on the tables & counters. Which is where the people will stand during the party while eating & drinking & talking with each other.
Which will make for a good party. *yeah*
