Before each pool party she hosts, Zarin invests in new fluffy towels for her guests, which she rolls up nicely to remind them of a spa. Then, she puts a basket of amenities -- including suntan lotion, spray water bottles, lip balm, sunglasses and hair ties -- in between the lounge chairs. (June 18, 2013)

"You always want to make it easy for the hosts, too," event planner Andrea Correale of Elegant Affairs said. Chilled gazpacho shooters with mini grilled cheese sandwiches are easy for host and guest.
