The best way to make sure your guests enjoy themselves is to make sure YOU enjoy yourself. A stressed out hostess can shift the whole atmosphere. Really, there's nothing to stress about. What gets done gets done, what doesn't, only you know. Things might go a little different than you envisioned, there might be some mishaps, but those are the things memories are made from.
Tomorrow is Jaden's first birthday party. I've got a lot to do today... Including baking three batches of muffins, 2 quiches, his first birthday cake, cleaning the whole house and the back porch, and some more decorating. But I will not let that stress me out, I not only want to enjoy the party tomorrow, but the process today. And if some things don't get done, that's ok. I've got my list of priorities. :)
I'll be back tomorrow sharing photos!! :)
