Julia Reed, New Orleans
Entertaining extraordinaire Julia Reed has written several books on the art of the cocktail party. She’s even coined the phrase “cocktail supper,” and it’s a term you’ll quickly learn to love (and use!). Around the holidays, it’s too much of a hassle to plan a sitdown dinner, what with all of those parties happening to fall on exact same night. Plan to serve heavy hors d’oeurves for substantial munching. That way, guests can pop in to eat and mingle as they please. But they certainly won’t leave your place with an empty stomach.
