Today, instead of writing my own (not so) brilliant ideas, I thought I would like to direct you to this great article: Souper Hospitality
Susan Ellington has some great thoughts and humor in her ecouraging article to show Hospitality.
"If you're a naturally gregarious sort, you don't really need encouragement to throw a little party. But if you have a more retiring nature, or you just don't know where to begin, don't worry. I'm here to help—and despite that earlier talk about "trouble" and "effort" it can be a whole lot easier than you think.
You can plan a party around any excuse or no excuse at all. I once threw a "Poverty Party" for those of us who couldn't afford our church's singles' retreat. The rule was you had to wear old clothes and bring food you had already paid for, which made for quite the eclectic menu. For years I held an annual birthday party for Sherlock Holmes. (He never showed, but he was in his 150's and it's a long flight from London to Texas.)"
She shares recipes and tips in her article too.
And I guess, she also hits a spot with me because of her ideas to "host on a holiday"....like National Chocolates Day :)
So check out her article here.
And check out this list of February Unique & Bizzare Holidays too while you're at it :)
