Last summer, I tried my hand at professional party planning for a few friends who were getting hitched and the end result was just lovely. They wanted something very small and casual, with an emphasis on great food and lots of booze.

This holiday party post is very, very late, but hopefully still helpful if you ever find yourself trying to entertain for a large crowd. We throw two large annual parties, but our holiday housewarming this year took the prize for most guests next to our wedding! Since returning to Los Angeles, we have found that our old friends have paired up and multiplied, making our two biggies (Easter and Christmas) even merrier! It’s wonderful, but feeding 60 people can be daunting…so here are some tips on how to do that without breaking the bank (or losing your cool): Continue reading
