Tropical getaway at home

Invite List: 6-8

Guest Type: Your best girlfriends

It’s easier than you think to escape to a tropics-inspired party in the comfort of your own backyard. Set up a low table and seat guests on colorful floor cushions. Serve easy-prep appetizers, such as heirloom tomato salad or veggies with dip, and ice-cold drinks. Set a palm frond in a decorative vase to match the party theme, and light up the table with candles so the party continues long after the sun sets.
