Last weekend, I hosted a Winter getaway at my vacation house. Seven of my best girlfriends joined me for a wonderful weekend away. On Saturday, after a long hard day of wine tasting, I found myself scrambling, half drunk around the kitchen making appetizers, dinner, and dessert. After dinner I laid down — while someone else did the dishes! — for a minute. Except, surprisingly, a minute turned into all night!
Unfortunately, this was before I had a chance to finish making the dessert. Passing out before dessert is served is not okay, especially if you are the hostess! I was absolutely mortified and contemplated changing my name from PartySugar to PartyFizzle.
Has anything similar happened to you? Has your hostess been a party pooper before the party finished?
