I'm planning to do my first open house but am not sure of the difference between that and a hostess appreciation show. Is there a difference? Anyway, I'm planning on hosting something at my house later this fall and pretty much invite everyone I know, former hosts and guests, etc. I know that these can be very successful shows that involve lots of work, so I'm wondering if you can share some tips....Specific questions are: How many recipes should I prepare? Should I plan on a demo or on demo stations? How do I handle cash & carry, door prizes, bookings incentives, etc. Any and all information would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
