We have, somewhat foolishly (i.e. I'm not enthusisastic) offered to give a going away party for friends. They've asked us to invite 30 people we've never met before! The party will be a week from Sunday at 2 PM so the food can be fairly casual and I'd like to keep the expense down as no offer of help on it has been forth coming.
Any suggestions? We're hoping to use our tiny deck as well as the inside of the house.
