  • Good for you for feeling that how to stop them. First of all, try not to make the party be about drinking, know what I mean? Alcohol for anyone should definitely be an afterthough, try to find some other fun beverages to offer. Second, you might just have to lay down the law with them and say, "Sorry, you can't drink."

    Last: maybe consider going to a restaurant instead. They'll be carded there, so it won't be your responsibility to say no. Good luck!

  • Specifically say "non alcoholic refreshments will be served, please do not bring any alcoholic beverages"
    If you know the two would sneak the alcohol or get mad, then just say no alcohol for anyone if you don't want to chance anything happening.

  • To make a romantic meal, cook his favorite food, put on a pretty outfit, tablecloth, cloth napkins, nice china and flatware, candles, soft music, etc.

    Can you just not serve alcohol? If they ask you could say sorry no drinking? Or maybe that alcohol-free beer?

  • 1- learn how to cook! 2- get the dogs out of your bed, nothing can be romantic with those two beasts! 3- don't even invite those two to your house!!!
    okay, i'm just kidding...calm down everyone, i know her.
    really if you need and recipes, call me or my ma, maybe where something besides comfy's..i know easier said than done! I wasn't joking about the and as far as the siblings, lay down the law!!!
