If you’re like me the thought of inviting people to your house can be daunting, so I tend to hold parties like the ‘Pampered Chef’, where there is a focus. These parties involve cooking something yummy and having a laugh with friends, usually at my lack of cooking skills! Our local person who leads the evenings is a christian, which is great. I always say it’s just an excuse for a social and there is no pressure to buy anything but just to come and have an enjoyable evening. My friend has just recently held one and invited all her neighbours, some whom she had never spoken to and they had a great evening and this has started some great relationships. There are lots of party plans like this around that you can choose from, just choose one that suits your and your friends’ interests.
