Lynn,
Thanks for the great tips on making a toast!
I agree that it is very important to be prepared - and practicing helps. I always advise my presentation skills coaching clients to conduct a dress rehearsal before a speech, presentation or toast. It's very helpful to practice what you will say, how long you will speak, where you will stand, how to use a microphone if required, how loud you have to speak, etc.

For more details, see my blog post:
