    Usually need help on what people are bringing for food if it is potluck and finding enough seating. If it is outside we ask everyone to bring their lawn chairs. Always a good time!!!

    For me, the biggest challenge is after dark outdoor lighting. While I have a wonderful outdoor room (and outdoor kitchen) for entertaining, I only have a "flood light", and porch light after the sun goes down.

    I need help with the outside space. My husband is not one for yard work and our back yard is awful with overgrown plants & weeds. We don't have the money to pay to have it done, so that means when I plan an outdoor party not only do I have to worry about the food & drinks, but I also have to make sure that I make the yard look presentable.

  9. Sabrina says:

    Planning the menu. I am always strapped for time and pulling my parties together last minute but want very tasty and fancy items to serve. Is there such a thing as easy & fancy?
