"The Guide To Life As It Should Be"

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

While reading some old party planning stories, I ran across a few articles that feature Colin Cowie. Thankfully, there weren't any pictures of CC (you know I hate looking at him), but there were some clever party tips that I thought I would share.

• Entertain simply. Don’t complicate meals and parties.
• Always look your best, elegant, yet comfortable and relaxed.
• The home is a window into your personality and style. Bring it to life.
• Spend 20 minutes a day cleaning your house
• Decant mouthwash into a sparkling glass container
• Use no less than 400-thread-count sheets and iron them
• Keep the following items in your guest room: notepad, pen, alarm clock, phone, water carafe and glass and a personalized welcome note.
