Tonight is my first dinner party in my new-ish house for friends. Nervous, excited, apprehensive and delighted all describe my emotions. It is just a dinner party not the opening of a million dollar theatrical event.
So why am I nervous? I suppose being a hostess is like being actress. No matter how many times you've performed a play or been before an audience, surely your heart stops the first few seconds after you step foot on stage. Also, I am not 100% sure about my planned appetizers. The last part is clearly not part of my theatre analogy.
Enough chatter, I am off to iron napkins, set the table, chill wine and make homemade challah.
Happy Rosh Hashanah everyone! Here's hoping your year is all apples and honey.
