Throwing Amazing Parties
by The Editors
been to parties that have that certain something-special that makes
them stand out in our memories as being truly fabulous. Of course, to
have a great party, you need to start with great guests. Assuming you
have that part covered, often it comes down to all of the little
party details to really make a party special.
Here are a few
fast but fabulous tips to put your parties on the map:
strawberries or raspberries, then pop them into glasses of white wine
or champagne for a dash of "bling". The berries will kick
it up a notch with a splash of color and class, and will inject an
element of unexpected surprise.
- If the lavatory
your guests will visit during the party has a bathtub, glam things up
by filling the tub with water, then float the heads of oodles of
large scented flowers in it. Roses, gerbera daisies, mums, and
carnations are all good choices. The stunning visual impact of this
will knock the socks of your guests - and the room will smell amazing.
- Pick up simple
store-bought cakes at the local grocery, then give them the high-end,
lavish look of expensive custom cakes by embellishing them with
fresh, non-poisonous flowers such as roses, pansies, or naustrusium.
- To encourage
mingling at a cocktail party, limit the number of seats so that
guests dont just plunk themselves down in one spot for the
entire night. Some seating is, of course, necessary for those with
weary feet, but there should be substantially fewer seats than guests
if you want to keep things lively at the party.
Follow these tips
and you'll soon acquire a reputation as an ace party planner!
