How to Host a Party? Two New Hostess Tips Series

Planning a party seems like it should be fun and easy, and it definitely is once you know the right way to host a flawless event. To help you do just that, I'm going to start two new post series that I'll update from time to time.

One series will be called Happy Hostess Tips. These will focus solely on party planning ideas to help you cover all of the details upfront and prevent you from becoming a frazzled, stressed-out mess at your party. Let these serve as your party planning template.

The other series will be called Graceful Hostess Tips, which will share insight on what to do during an party to make guests feel welcome, relaxed, and appreciated.

There is definitely an art to coming across as a natural-born hostess, and as I work to hone my own skills in this area, I'll share what has worked for me.
