Tips how to get the party started when you are behind

Sometimes though, I’m running behind. :( Do you ever run behind when people are coming over for dinner, and you keep looking at the clock? Story of my life!

Here are some tips that can help you get the party started, when you’re feeling a few steps behind:

1. Ask the kids to greet the guests at the front door and invite them in. That will give you a few more minutes to get ready.

2. Greet your guests and invite them into your kitchen. Give them a small job to do.

3. Bring the guests into your kitchen, offer them a drink and a stool, and get the conversation going while they watch you finish up your duties.

4. Usher your guests into the back yard, with a drink, and tell them to feel free to relax or wander around the garden area.
