PARTY PERFECT – NOT!

We make a mistake when we decided to wait until the house is perfect to host a party or family dinner. After all, people are coming to see you, not your house.

I talk a lot about the family dinners I host in our basement. Today I am going to show you that you do not have to wait until you remodel to have a party.

I set up two tables in our TV room, but there is no room for a buffet line.

My TV room set up for Thanksgiving dinner.

I turn my laundry room into a buffet room. All you have to do is cover stuff up. I press tablecloths for the washer, dryer, dresser, and table that we will place food on. I use old sheets to cover the laundry sorter and shelves that are full of tools.

The food and tablecloths draw your attention away from the unfinished walls. Don’t wait, have a family dinner party this Christmas!
