Her ideas will inspire you to find an excuse to throw a party for everything (we're planning Mr. Whiskermuffin's birthday right now), and lucky for you, she's got beautiful party themes ready to go. Like these:
She's also got you covered every step of the way with the most fashionable finds, from the invitations to dishware that would make your Ramen dinner look like a million bucks.

And the next morning, while you're working off your cheesecake-and-cosmopolitan hangover, check in with the Hostess Blog. By the time you make it through her giveaways, gift and recipe ideas, and delicious party photos from real women, you'll be ready to pen invites to your next party.
