What Houzz contributors are saying:

One of the unique features of the apartment is this multifunctional built-in unit in the dining room; there's also an abundance of closet space in the home. The couple painted the dining room charcoal gray to define it and give it personality. "We love the dramatic neutral gray; it really makes the built-in pop," says Lamb.A faux saber-tooth-tiber skull sits on top of the unit. "We got tired of our friends asking if it was real, so we decided to spray paint it gold," Lamb says. "I would paint everything gold if I could," adds Ryder.Wall paint: Gunmetal, Benjamin Moore; "R/R" print: McBess; skull: Saber Tooth Tiger Skull, Z Gallerie

Go with the flow ... and stay safe. If you and your guests are having a great time, try to be flexible — ask what people feel like having and order something in for dinner. This can also be a good hint for friends who may be getting a bit too tipsy that it's time to wind things down. Unless you are inviting your walking-distance neighbors, make sure your guests have a plan to make it home safely after cocktail hour. Offer to call cabs or designate a driver to shuttle folks home.Tell us: Share your favorite, funniest or worst cocktail party tales (either your own party or one you attended) in the Comments!How to set up a festive bar cart
