The potluck brunch for the women's club is this coming Saturday. I'm still waiting on RSVPs, but I'm expecting 25-30.
1) I plan on having coffee, hot cider and juices. Would you make hot tea as well? Or would you scrap the cider? (I really like it and just want an excuse to make it :P)
2) What supplies would you put out for the coffee? Flavored creamers, various sweeteners, etc.
3) This next question is something I have problems with every time I entertain. This house is just too small! When you walk in my house, you look left and see what's in the first pic; look ahead and you see what's in the second pic.
Normally I set up on the table and the serving bar. I end up with a traffic jam between the serving bar and the table OR a herd of people standing in my smallish galley kitchen, both of which kinda drive me batty. I can serve some things off my sideboard, but it's from 1860 and important to me. I've tried serving cookies and such on it once in the past and they got ignored.
I'm going to get a piece of plywood to serve as a topper for my dining table to enlarge it so it'll hold more stuff. Hopefully that'll ease congestion some. Do you think having a larger table hold all the food and then having beverages on the counter will work? Other ideas?
