We are entertaining my husband's coworkers and family members this weekend to celebrate his promotion. We don't entertain much, although I'd really like to do it more often.

We are keeping it casual by making a lentil soup, and chili with toppings. I will make corn and beer bread, in addition to a lettuce salad. I probably make some chocolate chip bars, too.

There will be alcohol, which is likely the biggest expense. I also need to have a few snack items if the party goes late. And since there may be children as young as two, I will whip up a cheese pizza or macaroni. I have apples and carrots that can be cut up to add to those options as well.

I purchased the paper goods last week. I think I will get most of the alcohol and ingredients tomorrow for the food. I will hold off on the lettuce and some of the vegetables until Thursday. Ice will need to be purchased just before the party. I think I will put my husband on that duty!

I'm looking forward to the socializing! I'm not as excited about spending the money. Smile

    Lovely to acknowledge and celebrate DH's promotion wth family and friends. With alcohol available we've always offered some type of snack on a bowl on most flat surfaces [side/coffee table, counter, adjacent to whatever is used as a' bar.' One of the easiest, least expensive snacks is last century's Chex mix of cereals [rice/corn/wheat] + stick pretzels & cup of nuts or cereal that resembles nuts.

    Yes, by all means put your husband on ice duty! It sounds like it will be money well spent. Have a great time.

    Congrats to dh on the promotion! Our liquor store has a ridiculous amount of rebates on liquor. You may want to ask where you buy liquor. Enjoy the party!

    Good point, Bright! I will keep my eyes peeled for those while I'm there.
