RHONJ Episode 6 After Party ~ Dinner Party 101

This week’s episode featured a dinner party thrown at one of Reno’s restaurants. It’s great to be able to create that atmosphere in your own home or on a larger scale. Entertaining and event planning is more than a hobby for me, it’s truly a passion. As much as I love to throw a big Project Ladybug bash, I also enjoy hosting more intimate gatherings. Details are truly everything when planning your dinner party. Check out this sneak peek inside one of my Dina’s Party School online courses!

My online virtual courses through Lovegevity are designed to help you plan your own events AND to plan events professionally for others. Create amazing moments that people will not forget! We have several options available to take the course to fit your time, learning style, and budget. Check us out here!

RHONJ Episode 4 After Party ~ Theme Party Love

Um…So it was kind of hard to feel glamourous in this episode given my costume for Amber’s shin-dig. My kind of theme is usually a little more bling than doctor’s scrubs so how about we chat cupcakes? You’ll find some adorable ideas here for cupcake themed parties! These are also sneak peaks at the footage from my Dina’s Party School courses.

Speaking of fall…Check out this little throwback bonus video and learn some GREAT tips to prepare for some fall or Thanksgiving party themes!

Hostess with the Mostest

hostess giftLet me let you in on a little secret: I love me a good party. Okay, so it’s not that much of a secret! But I have to admit, a soirée that strikes the perfect balance between theme, food, music, and great company really gets my blood pumping! 

I make it a point to host plenty of gatherings at chez Dina, but when I’m not playing hostess with the mostest, I never show up empty-handed! Nothing says, “Thank you for setting up this lovely party,” like bringing a gift along for the hostess that’s worked so hard!

Here are some of my favorite gift ideas to say thanks to the wonderful hostesses in my life:

1. A soothing scented candle. This one’s simple and easy. If it’s a close friend that’s hosting the party, you most likely already know their favorite scent. New friend? No problem. You can either go with a safe scent like vanilla or lavender (these scents are popular and smell divine) or if you’re still on the fence, buy a beautiful unscented candle that they can light during dinner!
