Afternoon Tea Prep

Over the weekend I had friends over, we had an afternoon tea and light nibbles with cocktails in the evening. I planned it all so I could be available to hang out with my guests by preparing everything in advance.

It worked really well for me not to be in the kitchen once everyone arrived but I still got to present a home cooked meal which I love to do. I think I finally found the right balance. How do you juggle cooking and entertaining?
