Tips Of The Trade: How To Plan A Party C/O NYC's Chicest Duo

Something about the summertime makes us want to Party (yes, with a capital P). And, because it's only Tuesday, we thought it necessary to break out a little super-luxe fiesta eye-candy for your mid-week afternoon slump. So, we tapped the best-of-the-best in party planning, Tala Yasseri and Andrea Rajacic of The New York Issue, to give us the low-down on their always elegant, sometimes raucous fetes. Think: a Prabal Gurung fashion week event that starts at a candlelit dinner and ends in dancing and Page Six.
Obviously, we tapped their skills for our own 30 Under 30 soiree, so we might be partial when it comes to ranking their best endeavor, but we'd be hard pressed to find a party they'd throw that we'd leave early (that is, if we left a party early). Click through for awesome NYC event-planning tips of the trade and take notes — you never know when they'll come in handy (hint: FNO).
