We set the tables on the porch for 22 three times last week! Trying to figure out my new camera. There's the proud innkeeper !

For now we have 2 gals who help in the kitchen and 2 who come in to help with the rooms. Hubby of one kitchen gal helps me with heavy stuff when I need it.
I usually get the tables and chairs set up and covered before I go off to work. Sometimes I'll set the table depending on kitchen girl schedules. DW does a lot of the food prep the night before. Her day starts at 5. The other night we finally wrapped things up and went across the street to get something to eat only to find out we were past the 9:30 kitchen closing time.....ahh, tourist season!
Sunday we had the 22 for breakfast, relocated to the lawn for the local art opening reception then relocated to the back yard for a 25 person BBQ.

Do you serve all 22 at the same time? Yikers! The most I've had is 19 and that was quite enough! If all at the same time, WHAT do you serve that you can get out that fast?

All at the same time. She does a great strada, quiche, baked french toast - caserole type dishes that pretty much fill both ovens, a couple of skillets of link sausages - it get's hectic! Makes serving 12 a walk in the park

My mind goes into dishwasher overload just looking at that image! God bless the dishwashers in the family.

Please feel free to share more photos whenever possible, y'all give us inspiration and a little perspiration.

Are these BnB guests or functions you are holding there? How many rooms do you have?

The first shot was a wedding group that rented almost the whole place. This weekend was just guests. We have seven rooms under our roof and the 2 story carriage house out back. We can sleep 24 when maxed. We are getting the routine down pretty well, then the fridge dies......and while we are making space and clearing the path for the new fridge delivery........the washing machine let's all of it's smoke out.......new one on the way somrtime tomorrow. We are just trying to decide if we need to go to the laundro-mat tonight...

Where did you get your eating utensils. I have quite a few of that pattern, and would like to get more.

Do you always go ahead and pour juice for every guest? We find that all of our guests don't drink juice since there's also a nice fruit serving. Also, we offer a choice of juices each morning, along with ice water and the hot beverages.

When we serve OJ we pour it up for all. If we are offering a choice (from time to time) we wait and ask their preference. OJ rarely goes undrunk. We have self serve coffee and hot tea and serve ice water to any one who asks.
