So, I've been reading my new book The Reluctant Entertainer. I'm feeling like I have gained some new confidence that I to can do this entertaining thing. It's not hard, or at least it's not supposed to be. I purchased a new steno pad to take important notes for myself from the book. I've been going through my own stash of dinnerware etc., I've been making bi-weekly trips to the local thrift stores to see what I can pick up to add to my own (advice from the author). So far I have found 2 packages of 4 cloth napkins, dark sage green $1 each, clear decorative bottle for flowers $1.50, round red placemats on clearance for .88 cents a piece. I did notice that I am lacking on the amount of dinnerware I have. Don't judge me but I only have a service for 4 in my all white cafe style dishes. If I do have people over what are they supposed to eat on? I'm hoping to add a few more dishes in the next couple weeks, I also noticed that our fork population has decreased. ????. I'm thinking they may be hiding in the boys' rooms. Have a great week, maybe you'll be the victim, I mean lucky person who gets to be a part of my entertaining experience. Cheers!!
