It's hard to resist throwing a party this time of year. Cold, dark nights call for candlelight and cozy, carby food. But, when invites start storming your inbox and overtaking your calendar, it's easy to think you don't have time to throw your own. That simply isn't true — you just have to know a few key shortcuts.
To prove it, we turned to one of the busiest people we know: Anna Plaks, our VP of brand experiences. Her schedule is perpetually booked, yet she always finds time to throw the most epic get-togethers. They're never overdone, but they are always perfectly done. So, when we teamed up with Pier 1 Imports to plan an after-work, cheer-filled cocktail hour, we knew Anna was hosting.
