Lauren Conrad’s Tips for A Good Party – And The Good Life

Planning a party is about so much more than the color of your table cloths or deciding whether to blast Pandora via Bluetooth or hire a live D.J. At its heart, party planning is really about spending time with the people you love, and, according to Lauren Conrad, just the right amount of imperfection. In an upbeat conversation with Redbook.com, the sweetheart hostess revealed a few of her secrets for a great party, and they just so happen to be secrets for a great life as well. She’s all about making things fun and beautiful without making them too fussy. Imperfection helps people relax and have fun. And, “at the end of the day,” she says, “the most important thing is that you are having as much fun as your guests and enjoying each other’s company. The point is to celebrate—and that means everyone.”

So, how do you find that perfect amount of imperfection? Well, unless you’ve got Martha Stewart on speed dial or consider yourself especially gifted as the hostess with the mostest, you hire an event planner.
