2 Weeks Before:
This weekend, it was Brad who did all the work. I happily sat at my computer, or kitchen table printing photos, cropping, cutting, and gluing scrapbook projects.
Brad cleaned ice chests, hung more Christmas lights on one of our olive trees where the gardner accidently cut the cord while trimming the tree, did some yardwork, cleaned the fountain and installed a new pump, and carried home 4 cases of large bottles of water.
I did laundry and straightened my craft closet. (not party-related)
We "found" (in the garage), 48 wine glasses, LOTS of champagne flutes for prosecco, and 48 water glasses.
I ordered the pork roasts from Bristol Farms.
My shopping lists are ready for next week for Costco, Trader Joe's, Bristol Farms, and a regular grocery store!
This week, my only party tasks are:
Touch base with kitchen helpers.
Re-confirm restaurant reservations and counts.
Iron the dinner napkins (that I didn't do 2 weeks ago).
Maybe I'll read my book club book for this month!
