I had my family over on Christmas for brunch. It was my first time holiday hosting in my new home. Although it was a small gathering it was fun. I even used the good dishes! Everything turned out really well- even the food. Everyone survived my cooking and took home leftovers so I guess it was a success! I of course was exhausted after and had to take a nap but it was well worth it. I never thought I would have my own home, let alone be a hostess!
