You're the sensible hostess! You're a very practical and level-headed host who is not easily frazzled or stressed out. When you entertain, you simply focus on the occasion and complete most of the prep work yourself. Keeping up with tradition is important to you, but when things don't go as plan, you always seem to have a back up.

You're the bold hostess! To you, entertaining is as much about being in the spotlight as making sure everyone else has a good time. You like the attention that comes with playing hostess, which is why you always have a flair for the extravagant. You like big themes and even bigger guest lists. When things don't go as planned, you simply hit reset and do things in your own over the top way.
The Bold Hostess
You're the truly loving hostess! To you, hosting is as much about making your guests feel right at home as it is making a good impression.

You always encourage pot luck style dinners where everyone can bring a dish and people feel free to pick and choose. When something goes wrong, you don't get upset or lash out. Instead, you keep your cool and make sure your guest's feelings come first.
