Will be giving a house warming party in the beginning of October and need ideas. Don't want to do the same 'ol. No quiche. No cheese plates. 12 people including SO and self. Thinking of starting with gourgeres and bloody's. Crepes perhaps? But don't want to be stuck in the kitchen the whole time. One guest is vegetarian and want to show her kindness regarding choices. Not a vegan, thank heavens. Wine? Normandy cider? Really want to impress with a elegent, budget friendly, not too fussy repast. Any ideas would be welcome. TIA.
