I've invited guests to bring sides, and a few people have volunteered desserts or side-dishes, and it's BYOB because, who has the money to buy booze for a whole party?
I won't be decorating, really, but I am going to bring the Echo out into the living room/kitchen area so the guests can control the music easily. (We will see how this goes) and I'm going to set up the buffet table area to look pretty.
This is the second time I've had the opportunity to host something at my apartment - the last was my birthday in March, which went pretty well but illuminated the problem of seating: I have none.
Ok not none- I have a couch, a few chairs, and bar stools by the breakfast bar, but I do not in any way have locations for 25+ people to put their butts while they eat. That having been said, I think I found the solution.
Extra-sturdy paper plates and pure hope.
Updates and recipes to come all throughout this week! Happy Friendsgiving Season, all!
