Confession time—we have a stack of about 20 old issues of Martha Stewart, Gourmet, and Domino bursting with Post-It notes sitting on that unused kitchen table chair, collecting dust. On OkCupid, we may fancy ourselves regulation domestic goddesses, but in the harsh light of reality, our dinner party plans are about as realized as Lindsay Lohan's comeback. So, to motivate our inner hostess, we've turned to N.E.E.T. magazine Editor and Creative Founder Stephanie J, who shopped-'til-she-dropped and picked out 11 decor finds at her top NYC casa stops. With suggestions like quirky serving plates and festive invitations, you'll be sending out those save-the-dates for one Welcome to Summer soiree your friends won't soon forget. Don't forget to add us to that guest list!
