Spring entertaining tip: “Dress up your cocktails! Adding special accoutrements to your elixirs makes for happy sipping. Whether it's a fun straw, a monogrammed swizzle stick, or a plastic monkey, a well-dressed drink is a lovely addition to a delightful spring soiree!”

Spring entertaining tip: “Forgo paper and plastic plates—put out the good stuff. It’s better for the environment, and more memorable. But if you must go disposable, I like bamboo because it’s bio-degradable.”

Spring entertaining tip: “If you’re the hostess, wear a fresh flower in your hair. Try a camellia or orchid. You’ll stand out when you greet your guests in style.”

Spring entertaining tip: “If you’re throwing a picnic party, take a quilt and hang it over a tree branch—it will make a colorful backdrop for the party. You can also hang lanterns in a tree!”
