Hostess With the Mostess

 
Hosting a dinner party? A rager? Just having a couple friends over? Here are some fail-proof tips for a successful party, brought to you by Design*Sponge guest blogger Sweet Paul.

1. Set the table the day before.
2. Don’t make anything that will keep you in the kitchen while your guests are hanging out.
3. Stews are perfect January food. You can even make it beforehand.
4. Soft music and candlelight sets the mood
5. No cell phones at the table….please!
6. Make cocktails, more cocktails and even more cocktails
7. Remember to buy or make enough ice
8. A perfumed candle in the bathroom does the trick
9. Its ok to play match maker, invite some single friends.
10. Don’t even think about the dishes. Nothing kills a party like a host doing the dishes.

Numbers 6 and 10 are my favorites. What about you? Do you have any good tips?
