This year I am excited (and terrified) to be hosting my family’s Thanksgiving Extravaganza. I say ‘extravaganza’ because this will be the first time since my wedding that my entire family and my entire in-law family will be at one table.
And hosting a for-realzies, adult dinner party is a first for me. I tried hosting a Christmas dinner with my in-laws a few years back and most people went home with food poisoning. I’m not even kidding.
But puke-gate is behind me. The past is in the past (sung triumphantly in manner of Frozen’s Elsa).
This year I am determined to throw a spectacular event.
Here’s what I know so far:
There will be 13 people at dinner. Yes, THIRTEEN.
That’s actually all I know.
What advice do you have for a first time hostess?
