A few years ago I attended a very formal and fancy holiday party at a friend’s house. Uniformed waiters handed out tray after tray of hors d’oeuvres. Our host mingled with her guests the whole evening. I complimented my friend on how calm and relaxed she looked. She revealed that she had spent 2 weeks cooking and baking the appetizers and desserts served at the party. I marvelled at her powers of planning and organization.
Planning it’s an interesting word, isn’t it? Just thinking the word “planning” can make me feel tense. I embark upon planning an birthday or holiday party with the best of intentions, but somehow time runs away from me. By the time I know it I am in panic mode running from grocery store to party store to liquor store and back to the grocery store for a myriad of forgotten, but must have items.
Planning an event is further complicated by my lack of fancy culinary skills. I do not know how to prepare tasty and attractive appetizers and finger foods — my cooking skills are not that refined. While I love hosting holiday get-togethers and parties at my house, I often feel I spend more time doing last minute food preparation, serving, and cleaning up than I do mingling with my guests.

I had these Brie and raspberry pastries at a party a few weeks ago and I can not get them out of my mind : ) I LOVE a good appetizer! I also love Mr. Chuy’s shrimp rolls! They are a great appetizer!
The pinwheels are tasty!
Brie cheese and quiche. I have absolutely no self-control when it comes to those two appetizers at a table. Everyone must serve them more often at their parties!
I don’t really follow any sensible eating guidelines. 🙂
I love anything on a deli tray, though.
