  1. Set a later start time.

Make it an after-dinner affair and skip the cooking. Just serve light bites like cheeses, desserts and hors d’oeuvres.

  1. Stock a Self-Serve Bar

Unless you’re a Kardashian, you probably won’t have a bartender on hand mixing up specialty cocktails. Make sure you set the bar up for self-service. Budget for two pounds of ice per person and plan on 3-4 drinks per guest—though you know your fellow partiers best.

  1. Don’t forget the wine charms.

Nothing is more annoying than having to hear the words “Is that my wine?” over and over again. Keep wine charms near the wine station and post a little sign encouraging guests to use them.

  1. Dress for style and comfort.

T-shirt dresses are the ultimate in style and comfort. As hostess, you’ll be on your feet nonstop, refilling snacks and greeting guests. Throw on a little black T-shirt dress and glam it up with sparkly accessories and flats.
