Presentation Pointers:
1.  If you’re short on tables and chairs, don’t make your guests stand.  Lay out some blankets with pillows for a fun, colorful, and comfortable seating area.

2. Make sure there are plenty of activities for everyone to participate in. If you have space, host a game of volleyball or croquet!

3. To take some pressure off of yourself, have every guest bring a dish or drink to share.
