Throw This Party: Halloween

From time immemorial, my mother has been telling me spooOOooky tales of Halloween parties with bowls full of eyeballs and brains. The ol’ peeled grapes-and-spaghetti noodles tricks, folks, and I’m not sure why my mom told me that every year, but it's all to say that Halloween parties have been woven into the fabric of my psyche, and one day, goddammit, I am going to peel those freaking grapes.

Throw This Party: The Garden Soiree

WOO! It's officially spring! Celebrate the return of sunshine to your life, or, if you always have sunshine in your life, celebrate the fact that you can have outdoor parties in the winter! Haha, silly friends who live in cold places! And what better way to do this than by throwing yourself a Garden Party? Do you have a garden, lawn, porch, or outside area? Perfect! If you have none of those things, throw one in your living room by opening the windows and bringing in some greenery, fresh-cut flowers, and floral prints. Or just head to the park! But I think that might be called a Picnic Party. Regardless, it's positively divine, darling. READ MORE
