When everyone puts in the efort. Not just the people who organised the party, but the guests, too. They should get up and dance, participate in everything and make great toasts.
Smoked salmon pizza with caviar. Trust me. It’s the hors d’oeuvre to kick of the evening right.

DEFINITELY HAVE AN AFTER PARTY
Offer your guests delicious, simple guilty pleasures, like chocolate peanut butter rice pops.
