Be ready for your next party by transforming a tall cupboard or armoire into your entertaining headquarters. Serious-looking on the outside, but once opened, the party is started!

Customize the interior of the armoire to suit your entertaining style. Attach fabric to the back of the unit or paint with chalk board paint to create a place to write drink recipes or a menu for the evening. Install a rack to hang various wine, champagne, and martini glasses. Include a small wine rack to hold bottles of wine or other liquor. Outfit the drawers with baskets and trays to organize supplies such as napkin rings, plates, place-cards, and small bowls. Add labels inside the top edges of the drawers to identify where items are stored. Use other items used for entertaining such as cake stands, ice bucket, vases, and platters to help keep party gear organized on shelves.

Once you have this entertainment headquarter in place, there is no excuse NOT to have a party!
