Spotify, Pandora, or even that retro turntable that’s been sitting in the closet. No matter the method, a continuous stream of classic tunes is always a good idea.
Elegant sit-down dinner or a brief cocktail fete? No matter the formality, no party should be without these basics:
Regardless of the fact that you’ve got a 4-course dinner planned, set up a small cheese board or a plate of easy apps for guests to munch on when they first arrive.
