Eloyise writes: “We’ve moved, and with over 50 people coming to our Christmas party, I’m not sure if we can all fit into our new place. The party needs to last longer this year, so we will need food for several hours. Can you suggest party food ideas? I want it to be as nice as last years. Thanks!!“
