{12 Posts before Thanksgiving} Are you Mentally and Physically Ready for Company?

Hosting a dinner party takes some effort; it requires stamina to set up, enjoy the party and then clean up, not to mention shop, cook, clean and make yourself presentable. My best tip for a 'posh' party, especially a Thanksgiving gathering, is to prepare yourself mentally and physically. Get sleep the night before. Take a brisk walk in between large tasks. Drink plenty of water throughout the day. And lastly, before the party begins, take 5 minutes to sit down, close your eyes and envision your party - such as welcoming guests at the door, chatting with a neighbor, laughing with a co-worker and sipping wine (and swapping secrets) with your best friend. This mental preparation will allow you to enjoy the moment!
