The best cocktail parties are the ones that appear to be effortlessly executed because every detail is perfectly planned: from the food to the staff to the décor, everything comes together seamlessly. To help you on your way, may we suggest a few pre-party preparation tips that will ensure that all the catering bases have been covered and allow you to sit back and relax as your guests arrive. The answers to the following questions will help to define the details  of your event and make hosting the  perfect party fool-proof:
