THE BEST PARTY EVER

CON­SISTS OF ...

Good vibes, good mu­sic, great com­pany, and fan­tas­tic food. Also, at­ten­tion to de­tail is key.

FOOD BEST SERVED

AT A PARTY ...

Canapés are the best, es­pe­cially ones that can be popped into your mouth

with­out much trou­ble.

A PARTY NO- NO ...

Hav­ing some­thing out­door, with­out con­sid­er­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of rain. I have per­son­ally ex­pe­ri­enced one event where it was held in a beau­ti­ful

open area, only to have it rained upon, which com­pletely ru­ined the mood. Ev­ery­one had to run into the nearby restau­rant for shel­ter. Al­ways

have a backup plan!

THE BEST PLAYLIST

FOR A PARTY ...

The ’80s, in­clud­ing Bruce Spring­steen and Men at Work. I think mu­sic from that era feels good – it’s not too up­beat or in your face; it gets the

mood go­ing.

THE MOST RE­LI­ABLE THEME OF ALL TIME ...

Car­ni­val!

THE BEST KIND OF PARTY TO SUR­PRISE YOUR WIFE WITH WOULD BE ...

Some­thing that in­volves me cook­ing the food. She al­ways loves it when I cook. She loves an in­ti­mate sit- down with her clos­est friends and fam­ily.

A MUST-HAVE PARTY DRINK ...

Cham­pagne. Just be sure your guests do not drink and drive!

THE BEST WORDS A HOST COULD EVER HEAR ...

“Would you like me to help with the dishes?”
