50 Party Essentials

Inspirations For Fabulous Fetes

— December 18, 2008 — Lifestyle
‘Tis the season to whoop it up with festive parties and shindigs. Really, when is a bad time? This collection of high-octane merrymaking innovations is an essential for anyone planning a holiday bash, or just a social gathering for a few close friends.

Crazy ideas in drink dispensers, clever modular cooktops, tabletop fireplaces and fun dishwear finds are all here. Need additional ‘facilities’ for your event? Maybe an iPod porta-potty is what you’re looking for. Maybe give your friends a take-home gift with a picture from a ‘digital photo party booth.’ Sounds like fun to me.

If you’re only going to do one thing though, please make sure you don’t miss the retro instructional ‘How to Party’ video, the 50’s were so edgy!
