Recipe for Success: "My best parties last a long time. I like it when guests can sit around the table and talk for hours. I always use place cards -- knowing where they're going puts people at ease. It also helps to hand them something, like a drink, as soon as they walk in the door."

Recipe for Disaster: "Don't take on a major project the day of the party. On the morning of our New Year's Eve party, my husband and I built a buffet and skirted it for the dining room. It looked great, but we were exhausted by the time guests arrived."
