Live Twitter Chat: Throw A Great Party Without Breaking The Bank

Want to host a great party but don't know where to begin? If only you could talk to the best and brightest event planners and caterers in the business for inspiration and their tried-and-true party tips.

Well, you can.

They're the people who plan events with all the stops pulled out, bringing in the gospel choir, arranging an entrance by yacht, or an exit via gondola. They coordinate banquets for over 1,500 guests at a time, design state luncheons and dinners for the President, and anniversary celebrations for stars. And they want to help you throw the perfect party — all on your own!

Join us this Wednesday, August 24th at 1 p.m. EST for a live Twitter chat to speak with some of the top event planners and caterers from around the country. They will be readily available to share their tips and tricks for throwing a great party on a budget and are excited to share their advice on how to transform high-end party elements into ones you can recreate for your own party. Have some party planning questions? Need some unique ideas? Join @thedailymeal by following the #Partytips hashtag and including #Partytips at the end of each tweet during out live chat.

We look forward to chatting with you!
