Lo­cals named on list of top hosts

The Dallas Morning News - - HOME - Jamie Knodel

When it comes to host­ing a suc­cess­ful party, there are plenty of fac­tors to get right: tone, guest list, at­mos­phere and more.

In Dal­las, a hand­ful of peo­ple have el­e­vated it to an art form, says the Sa­lon­niere. The web­site ded­i­cated to par­ties and host­ing has in­cluded them in its an­nual list of Amer­ica’s 100 best. Gene Jones, Cindy Ra­chof­sky, Nancy Rogers and Kim­berly Sch­legel Whit­man are among the host hon­orees.

Their in­vites are among the most cov­eted in the coun­try, the Sa­lon­niere de­ter­mined af­ter sur­vey­ing hun­dreds of in­flu­ences from across the coun­try.

“While the Sa­lon­niere 100 is di­verse across a va­ri­ety of fac­tors, all on the list share a rare gift for cre­at­ing warm, gra­cious and mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ences for oth­ers,” said Carla McDon­ald, founder of the Sa­lon­niere.
