Some Enchanted Evening
From stunning tabletop inspiration to expert hosting advice, here’s the whole lot you might want to rejoice in style.
Renowned event planner Chris Hessney shares his easy tricks for enhancing any setting.
“I like setting the tone through scent,” says Hessney, who designs high-profile soirées for corporations like Carolina Herrera and Goop. “Try roasting orange slices right before guests arrive, or keep a pot of mulled wine on the stove top.” He also recommends lowering the lights for an extra-cozy vibe. “I’ve actually left parties where the lights were too vivid. Everyone feels more relaxed when the room’s dark and moody,” he says.

Event designer extraordinaire Rebecca Gardner has a number of shortcuts to making sure a memorable gathering at home.
A celebration Gardner hosted at her Savannah home with Puiforcat.
A bit effort goes a great distance relating to unforgettable events. “The tiniest surprises could make an amazing difference,” says Gardner. “Try masks, party hats, or parlor games. Give them something to discuss.” One other easy approach to impress? A signature cocktail. “Greet guests with something classic and robust. It loosens everyone up, and your party is prone to end with dancing on the table.”

In his latest book, Occasions to Rejoice: Cooking and Entertaining with Style, celebrity chef Alex Hitz serves up crowd-pleasing recipes (think: Southern comfort food with French flair), table-setting suggestions, and secrets for tackling tricky seating. Below, social fixture Deeda Blair’s ultimate high-low dish, included within the book.
Deeda Blair’s oven-baked potato chips with crème fraîche and caviar, from Occasions to Rejoice: Cooking and Entertaining with Style by Alex Hitz.
OVEN-BAKED POTATO CHIPS WITH CRÈME FRAÎCHE AND CAVIAR
- 1 pound russet potatoes
- 1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter, melted
- ¾ teaspoon salt, divided
- 1 cup crème fraîche
- ½ cup heavy cream whipped to soft peaks
- ¼ cup chopped green onions
- 1 pound caviar
Preheat the oven to 500°F. Peel the potatoes, and slice them crosswise 1/16-inch thick on a mandoline. Rinse the slices in several changes of cold water until the water runs clear. Pat them dry with paper towels. Dip the potatoes within the melted butter, and arrange them in a single layer on parchment-lined baking sheets. Place the pans on separate racks within the oven and bake them for 10 minutes. Reverse the position of the pans front-to-back and between the racks and bake them for 10 minutes more. Remove the chips from the oven, and salt them with ½ teaspoon salt. Remove the chips from the parchment with a spatula, and place them on a clean, dry metal sheet pan. In a medium mixing bowl, mix the crème fraîche, whipped cream, green onions, and remaining salt. On 4 salad plates, place a generous group of overlapping chips. For every serving, dollop 4 to six tablespoons of the crème fraîche mixture on top of the chips. Place generous spoonfuls of the caviar on top of the cream mixture on each plate and serve. Makes 4 servings.
