    I agree with most of the results. I love to splurge on local cheese, sausage, and fruits/jams/honey to include on a large charcuterie tray. I always buy ingredients to make from scratch the majority of the foods I serve.

    I agree! Cheese platters are always a go-to when I'm hosting, and chips and dips are always a hit. I also tend to splurge on food and desserts.

    I agree with what everyone stated. I?d rather invite less people and make it a more quality event.

    Quality over quantity. The people I'm spending time with make the event and not home much money spent throw the party.

    I agree with the results. I also get cheese platters and meat platters because that is the easiest way and kinda cheapest way to go.

    I agree with most of these. I splurge on everything since it's easier to buy everything than have to make it.

    Most of the results are as to be expected but to be honest I would have thought on the second graph (circle) that there would have been a larger difference for chips and dip. Surprisingly, chips and dip isn't taking up a larger percentage. And no surprise most people, when shopping for needs for entertaining guests, most people choose to go to Wal-Mart. Seems like Wal-Mart is everyone's go to for just about anything!

    I love splurging on local cheese at the farmer's market, and summer fruits.
