Party Strategy:
• Make the Daiquiri mix ahead up to two days. Store in refrigerator.
• Chicken salad and desserts can be cooked day before
• Brunch takes the place of two meals – breakfast and lunch – so plan for somewhere
between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM.
• The party mood should be slow and conversational.
• Play jazz music softly in the background.
• Even though it’s daytime, light lots of candles.
