Stack of blankets
If you're entertaining outside during chilly weather, be a thoughtful hostess and set out a stack of cozy blankets with a sign inviting guests to bundle up.

Empty picture frame and camera
Nothing encourages silliness more than a photo booth. Keep it simple by hanging a jumbo empty picture frame, and setting out a few fun props and camera.

Who says pinatas are only for kids and Cinco de Mayo? Raid the storage room for cardboard, a glue gun and crepe paper. If you're hosting an adults-only get-together, fill the pinata with mini liquor bottles (in addition to the usual candy and toys) for a fun surprise.

Paper soup cups
As a rule, we abide by the three R's, but we do make exceptions for big parties. If you don't want to end up with a towering stack of dirty dishes, buy versatile jumbo paper cups in bulk and use them to serve soup, chili, pasta – or even to send guests home with leftovers. Shop Garnish to buy these in smaller quantities.
