    Your jellies look very pretty Karen. Hope the party went well. I often had to cook for upwards of 25 when I worked at the manor. Largest amount I did was a cocktail party for 200. Talk about a crazy day! I loved cooking for the dinner parties most of all, even though it was a lot of work. I felt like a conducter orchestrating a beautiful piece of music. when it all came together and everything came out right, it brought me great joy! I am sure your guests were well pleased with your efforts! xxoo
