" Buffet tables, garnished with glistening hors d'oeuvres. spiced baked hams crowded against salads of harlequin designs and pastry pigs and turkeys bewitched a dark gold..." _The Great Gatsby
When planning an event...Ask yourself these questions:
WHAT is the PURPOSE of the event?
(Celebrating a birthday, special occasion, saying "thank you" or "good-bye" to friends?)
WHEN do I want my guests to eat? to arrive? to leave?
WHERE do I want to have my event?
HOW many guests do I want to entertain?
WHAT is my budget?
WHY haven't I called Lori yet?
