Hosting an event for friends or family can be a lot of work. There’s the house to clean, all the shopping to do, the decorations to choose… Add to that the decision of what to serve to please all your guests, which can be overwhelming. The question becomes: should I do it all? Ask for financial contributions? Hire a caterer? May we suggest none of the above?
