Maybe not, but it was highly successful: new friends and old mingled well on a wet, blustery winter afternoon, much food (bagels, cakes, chips, smoked salmon, yummy fig-ricotta toasts, quiche, pastry, candy, cookies) and drink (mimosas, killer bloody marys) was consumed, music played and was played. And the best part is, it’s barely 7:00, we’ve been partying all day, and yet the house is as clean and quiet as if nothing happened. Daytime entertaining is absolutely the way to go.
