Survey: Short Notice Entertaining

Let's pretend your significant other calls, stating they are bringing someone home for dinner in an hour and a half. How do you react when time is short and you have a laundry list of things to be done? There's a house to get clean, a meal to prepare and possibly shopping or kids to handle. What do you do first? What's for dinner? Are you a "stasher" or is your house already clean? Hear our ideas and leave us yours after the jump!

We saw this question asked earlier this week over at Hip Domestics. And although it sounds a little 1950's the answers had us in giggles and wondering what we would do ourselves in a pinch. At some point in time everyone has an unexpected guest

Hopefully The Cure has most people well organized so picking up wouldn't be a major effort, although we've been known to stash large projects that might be consuming the better part of our dining room table in laundry baskets behind closed doors in an impromptu situation (shh don't tell). We always have quick meals on hand thanks to The Kitchn and even have a folder full of them just in case! We're also pretty sure that vacuuming floors and furniture would be done (we have dogs) and fresh flowers would be involved!

What would you do? What order would you do it in? Are you on the ball in panic situations or do they leave you calling for take out? Let us know in the comments below!
