Hostess Tips with Maria Menounos and CPK

Escaping to the hills of Bel Air for a girls night in is always a good idea! Especially when CPK is the caterer and Maria Menounos, of Access Hollywood, is your hostess! 
Held in an art eclectic modern home in the hills, CPK organized the epitome of Girls Night In by inviting entertainment gurus, bloggers, actresses and entrepreneurs to mingle whist watching Clueless, getting manicures and massages. 
While enjoying the cupcake making station and each delectable pizza after another, Maria and I sat down to chat about hosting for the Holidays.
Tip #1- 
When planning the evening, keep in mind what the clean up with be. Maria recommends to keep it simple but still make it look like you put a TON of effort into it with the small touches.
Tip #2-
Put some thought into the cocktail and food pairings. Maria's pairs her CPK frozen basil pizza with a fresh basil and gin mix to incorporate the two.
Tip #3-
Styling tip for the hostess- Wear flats! Especially if you will be the one cooking for the Holidays. A comfortable cashmere sweater and leggings with flats is a classy relaxed look.

Adding Floral arrangements that match the theme of the night is a great host tip!
