Today we’re opening up this Open Mic post for a conversation about hosting and entertaining guests. As we approach the summer, many of us have graduation parties, wedding receptions, and family reunions to host. We want it to be a memorable, positive event, but prefer not to spend a fortune.
You can ask questions, share ideas and answer questions left by others. The only stipulation is that 100% of the conversation be focused on entertaining, hosting and gift giving for events like weddings, graduations and the like. Save other money-saving questions for Thursday’s general Open Mic; any off-topic posts here will be removed. Read through the Open Mic archive for tons of money-saving tips and advice.
