Party angstYou’ve done all of the preparation. You were up at daybreak to get to the markets in order to source the best ingredients for your table. You bought fresh flowers in abundance, plus plenty of ice and Champagne. The canapes are a work of art. But despite all of this, you look around and see pained faces.
