To me true luxury is when casual and elegant stylishly mingle. Its when good friends come together to enjoy good food and great company. Welcome to my Luxury Dinner Party for 12. This party happened to be on one of the hottest days on record in Los Angeles, some of the guests even wore shorts! Now that’s luxury. VOTE for me HERE
You kinda get the idea that you are a grown up when you start throwing dinner parties. They might start out as simple affairs– a few buds, brews and boxed pizza from your college experience. But as life and the years start to creep up on us, it seems our dinner parties get more and more elaborate. They become laden with social and professional importance. They begin to mark meaningful events in our lives. They emerge as family traditions.
Then one day you wake up and realize that you know how to throw one heckuva dinner party. You have the formula all figured out. And guess what? You even like to entertain at home! You really do…
At least this has been the trajectory of this host’s life. But what if you have had better things to do with your time than master the art of the place setting? Or maybe (yikes) you are actually younger than me and have not had decades on the frontline as a party planner. Maybe you are still trying to tackle a few of the other grown up milestones, like buying car insurance, owning a sofa, or wearing big-boy underpants.
But don’t worry, once you have tackled these breakthroughs toward adulthood you are ready to handle the dinner party; because honestly it couldn’t be easier. Besides, it’s a heck of a lot less traumatic than wearing big-boy underpants, I can tell ya that. Because organization is the key in making every event shine.
