No matter how many times I entertain, no matter how much time I’ve spent preparing, I always wish I had an extra hour or two before my guests arrive. Always!
One of the things I tend to leave until the last minute is the music, which is just plain silly: music can set the tone of the party and make your guests instantly feel at ease. Never mind it’s a great ice-breaker.
This Thanksgiving, I’m turning over a new leaf and putting my playlist together now. Fingers crossed I remember to turn the music on before my guests arrive.
