Summer's finally here and that means Barbecues, Parties and Outdoor fun. Here are 10 simple steps that'll help you turn your next shindig into a show stopping event...
1. Choose a Theme
2. Linens and Things
3. Basic Blooms
Floral arrangements can be daunting and quite pricy. Placing single stems in bottles is a simple sophisticated way to display florals. Try using bottles of various heights, in different hues, to add dimension.
5. Plate It Pretty
Food is a major component to any successful gathering. And with the percentage of the budget it takes up, why not make it do double duty? "Plating pretty" is not only visually impactful, but it's the signature of good hospitality. So practice your penmanship.
7. Put It On a Stick
9. Light It Up
There are so many options here. From candles or string lights to uplighting, adding light is a perfect way to set the mood.
10. Say Cheese
In this post smartphone world, where the selfie is king. No party is complete without a photo station. From a simple backdrop with homemade props to a tricked out professional booth, your guests are sure to be on their model behavior, with one of these on hand.
Follow these steps and plan your next party like a pro.
Thanks for tuning in. Talk to you soon!

The vision for The MIMI NIKOHL Blog is inspired by the classic Beatles song "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", which captures an aura of whimsical fantasy and nostalgia for childhood fun. As an artist, my aesthetic marries elegance and sophistication with bursts of creative impulse and absurd artistic humor.
My blog is an entertainment guide for hosting fun, stylish, unforgettable events for everyone from the first time hostess to the mini Martha Stewart. I offer easy DIY decorating ideas, themes, hostess tips, delicious menu options, and much more. Whether it's a bridal shower, child's birthday, romantic dinner, or wedding, your guests will appreciate and remember the personal touches: the romantic floral arrangements, delectable dessert buffet, thoughtful gift bags, or wickedly fun games.
Planning an event can often be a stressful, expensive and emotionally exhausting endeavor, but I hope to alleviate this anxiety through planning tips and organizational tools. Most importantly, I hope to inspire you to enjoy the creative process of planning an event.
So let's party!!!
