How to Fit Planning a Dinner Party Into Your Busy Schedule

Dinner parties are, in theory, an opportunity to spend some time with your friends, enjoy yourself, and relax. However, throwing and hosting a dinner party isn’t always relaxing. It can be quite stressful, especially when your schedule is jam-packed with a million other things. So, how do you find the time to plan and throw a dinner party? Here are some tips to help you fit planning and preparing for a dinner party into your busy schedule:
1. Don’t wait to go shopping – Try to get all the things you need for the party the weekend before the party happens. For instance, you could take a trip to the grocery store on the Saturday or Sunday before the party, when you have some extra time. If you go to the grocery store at a certain time each week to do your regular shopping, pick up the party food then.

New Venture

I have been keeping things on the down low about my new venture for a while now. While battling computer problems, i took the opportunity (or should i say the opportunity seized me) to open a boutique.No, it is a virtual shop. Lioness Boutique has been formally launched in Jamaica. Yes, I said it.

I am still wondering when i got to this point; meaning when i started Lioness Rebirth- The Blog, opening a boutique was not apart of the plan. However, the more i blogged; the more doors opened and the more opportunities i am able to explore.

So, please stop by and like my page-facebook.com/lionessboutique- and look around. I would love your feedback. Lioness Boutique also has a blog -lionessboutique.blogspot.com.
