    Sounds like you have it all under control. Too bad the "co-host" has fizzled out, but as the others say, file it away under experience and don't let it ruin you party !
    Hope you have a great time

    maybe she's waiting to take a nap? because she's exhausted from sending out late invitations?

    when people compliment you and your co-host, don't be bashful about taking all the credit. like "thank you so much. i didn't know if i would have time to do it all, but i did manage to fit it all in. it wasn't easy, believe me." smile as you say this. venting is good. venting with smile is great.

    LOTS of good advise here! Be gracious and smile a lot :D :D :D . You can always say (with a smile of course) you were so busy doing everything you don't know what you would have done if (whats her name) hadn't finally got the invitations sent out. :wink:
    by the way can you take a picture of the spread so we will feel like we attended without gaining any weight from the yummy sounding food?

    That really is sad. Some people want the credit without doing any work. Take a deep breath and let it go. You know what you did for your friend by throwing the party for her and I'm betting she knows or will know it was done by you alone. Just smile and have fun there.

    I would call her up and say that I was hoping that she would be able to to get the supplies for the margaritas, and without stopping to breathe, I would start reading the list of supplies. I would tell her that I had meant to call earlier, but with all of the things that had to be done, I just
    didn't get a chance to call sooner.

    It's better to get some help than no help. I would also let her pick up any flowers or last minute noshes.

    If she is not a person who entertains, maybe she is oblivious of what
    is involved in throwing a party. Give her a chance to help.

    I can't image anyone being so "helpful". "Co-host" doesn't mean that you do everything along with supplying everything. Apparently everyone but her have no manners or consideration. If she asks you to do something else, remember this incident.
