How To Throw A Dinner Party Like Bevy Smith

Part of being a dynamic Glamazon is knowing how to socialize with style. And one of the most fabulous ways to entertain friends is to throw a chic, classy dinner party. For advice on doing just that, look no further than Bevy Smith's guide to hosting for AOL Black Voices.

The creator of "Dinner with Bevy" a unique party-planning and hosting service, Ms. Bevy has hosted intimate affairs for the most recognizable names in entertainment from Idris Elba to Sanaa Lathan. Bevy is lauded for giving luminaries the platform to make priceless connections in an intimate setting---while rocking out to Ashanti and Michael Jackson in the background! Now, the self-proclaimed gal about town is sharing her expert hosting tips with the rest of us. 

In her article for AOL, Bevy gives useful and hilarious advice on everything from the guest list ("Only invite people you really like...Intimate settings with "frenemies" and liquor are a recipe for a reality show audition tape.") to the host's outfit ("As the host, you should look like you're attending a dinner party, not like you're working it...put on an outfit that says "I'm ready to have a good time."). 

Her advice is just perfect! I'm planning a dinner party for my birthday (coming up in May!) and plan to make use of every tip.
