Tips how to get the party started when you are behind

Friends, I’m sharing a few tips that I shared back in 2012 on hosting. My kids were much younger, so life was a bit different then!

Are you ever running behind when guests ring the door bell?

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.

For sure you don’t want to leave your guests standing at the front door. And for sure you don’t want to hide out in the kitchen while they are waiting for the “party” to get started.
