Locals named on list of top hosts
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.
