Party Planning: The Guest List

Once you have your invite and your venue, the next important thing is your guest list. Who’s coming to the party?

New York is a very diverse city, and I love bringing together folks from all groups: uptown, downtown, celebrities, royalty, clients, gay, straight, etc... I find that with great décor and enough food and drink everyone has a wonderful time and gets along fabulously.

I think parties are a good place for people watching and dancing. I'll talk more about music and  entertainment closer to the event, but I do think it’s important to plan a surprise appearance of a singer or group for no more than 25 minutes. (You can see the surprise guests from my last party—Sister Sledge--below.) It adds a little extra something to the party that people will be talking about for days after the event. Of course, it doesn't just have to be a band or singer that wows the crowd, any element of surprise that creates a defining moment is something no party should be without.

Who do you think should perform at my Celebrations party this year and why? Let me know.


  1. Lady Gaga--She's the only performer I can think of that's fabulous enough to compete with your brilliant designs! I love the blog and come by often to soak up inspiration. Thank you for writing!

    Your Fete Fan~

  2. I think Lionel Ritchie would be fantastic. His music is up beat and young and old enjoy his music.

  3. Kool and the Gang...Celebrate good times come on...(Although I am not sure if they are still around) it would be nice if they started off the party.

    Its a celebration

    all the best
    your number one fan from Roma-Italia

  4. The O'Jay's, Preston you must have a party with the O'jay's as the icing on the cake.
