R.S.V.P.s

I have experienced countless frustrating moments surrounding the lack of R.S.V.Ps to my events.  One year I entertained 50 people for an Independence Day party and over 20 guests finally sent their R.S.V.P. two days before the party!  Now all you fabulous hosts and hostesses know that I had already shopped for the food and […]
