Party Advice from the Pros

This month's House Beautiful was all about entertaining. They asked a bunch of designers, event planners, and bloggers for their entertaining advice. Here are some of my favorites, which work for a fancy party or just a dinner with friends:

Create a music playlist that's ready to begin as soon as the doorbell rings and doesn't end until the last guest departs.
Tricia Folley


Don't use plastic.
Jennifer Rubell

Send out a proper invitation.
Ken Fulk

Always start with an empty dishwasher.
Chesie Breen


Don't ever make it feel formal-- it's such a snooze.
Jonathan Adler
