I mentioned in another post, I'm hosting a party for a local professional origanization. This is how it came about. I was at a dinner with two other members of the group. They suggested we should plan for the cmas party. The other two can't have it at their houses (new born, new house, to far) so I offered my house. I discussed this further with another member of the group after the meeting. He thought it might draw a large crowd, besides that, the party is going to be next week so to reduce stress on me, do it potluck style. The organizers, about 5 of us would provide hot food, the rest can bring easy things such as dip, chips, drinks, desserts, vegies, fruit.
Since my house is a mess, I'm having it professionally cleaned. It would be good as well since I want to list my house for sale and have family visiting for Christmas. Besides that, since my house is lacking furniture, I'm renting a couple of couches.
I mentioned this to a friend. (She was called me cheap. Why I'm a doctor and want to make a potluck, blah, blah, blah. If I don't have the place, the furniture, or the time then why bother?
As it turns out, there will probably be less than 15 people. My sister in law said for me to just pay for everything. I'm starting to think it's OK. For 15 people I can just order from a restaurant. What do you think, even though the others offer to help.
