HOST WITH THE MOST

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - NEWS -

JO­HANNA Griggs knows the pres­sure of host­ing a large-scale party. And over the years, she has learnt a few keys to pulling off the per­fect event.

BE OR­GAN­ISED:

Em­brace list-writ­ing – and write many. It’s the only way to keep track.

GET HELP:

En­list fam­ily mem­bers – par­tic­u­larly if you’ve got kids who are bored at home dur­ing school hol­i­days – for the fid­dly, small jobs.

SHOP ON A BUD­GET:

You’ll find plenty of qual­ity dec­o­ra­tions and other bits and pieces in dis­count shops. You don’t need to spend a small for­tune.

TIM­ING IS EV­ERY­THING:

When you’re cook­ing for a lot of peo­ple, keep the tim­ing of var­i­ous dishes in mind. Hav­ing ev­ery­thing ready at the same time takes pretty care­ful plan­ning.
