I will be hosting our neighborhood bunco next month and I need some advice from all you smart ladies out there. I know I could ask my friends, but you gals seem to have the best ideas and you are like my friends too. Okay, first of all, I am unsure of what to serve for dinner. We only have to host once a year, so the host typically serves dinner. I want to do a fall theme, but not go overboard on price or time involved. The last hostess served chicken salad sandwiches, veggies and dip, and a side dish. I want to be a little more themed and creative. Not to mention, I want to make an out of this world dessert. Second, I need to know what I should do about beverages. I do not drink alcohol, and this bunch definitely does. I have no problem with their decision at all, but I would prefer not offering drinks, or having it flow freely as it does at the other get togethers. I am thinking about writing on the invitation something about bringing your own beverage, however, my husband doesn't think I should say anything. He says just offer coffee, teas, cider, soft drinks and water. If they bring their own, that's fine. I am probably making too much of this, but I want them to feel welcome in my home. I also want them to see something different in me and the way I live my life. These ladies are so special to me, and most of them are not Christian. Now, don't let me down. Bring on the advice!
