It's harder than it used to be to host a party. You can't just throw all your favorite foods on the menu and assume all your guests will enjoy them as much as you do.
More than likely, you're going to have at least a couple guests with diet restrictions, and as the host, it's your duty to make sure they actually have something to eat. Since it's likely that at least one of those guests will be gluten-free, we've rounded up some of our favorite gluten-free party foods. Include a couple of these on your party menu, just in case.
