I used to get myself all hyped up to decorate and make sure every little detail was considered when I entertained. But then I realized that my guests were more comfortable and everyone seems to have more fun when things are a bit more casual (and especially when they have a less frazzled host). Your Easter brunch looks like it was a blast.

Wise words, my friend! I would entertain a lot more if I could implement some of your wisdom.
