CB2 party hints

Curtis I like to create a party play list on my iPod and try not to touch it for the rest of the night.
Raymond Stay clam. Plan ahead. Don’t procrastinate. Prep anything you can ahead of time. Music and flowers are key.
Sara Keep it simple…beer, wine, chips and dips. For me it’s more about the guests, the conversation.
Jen If it’s really last minute, the quickest clean up you can do is Windex all mirrors and sweep the floors. And turn on an iPod!
April I like to put out a new fragrant hand soap and guest towels in the bathroom and light a scented candle.
Jaime Fill rooms with holiday scents like cedar, pine, pear or freesia.
Ali I usually make one new appetizer or dish when I entertain. It’s a good opportunity to expand my repertoire.
Sandra Tell myself the party starts 30 minutes before guests arrive—so I’m dressed in time!
Ryan I don’t have a lot of parties but I always have a good bottle of wine and scotch on hand, just in case.
Marta Candlelight is a must and no paper napkins.
Amy Music sets the tone and the rhythm of any soiree. Figure out who’s coming and chose wisely. Remember it should be cheerful and inspire good conversation.
Vance No overhead lights…and never invite more than one ex.
Steve If it’s in the budget, call a maid service. Before is nice but after is heavenly.
