Do-Ahead Decor

Culinary expert and author of Do It for Less! Parties: Tricks of the Trade from Professional Caterers' Kitchens, Denise Vivaldo adds to the pre-party prep with beautiful table decorations that help set the mood.

Melt-in-your mouth starfish sugar cookies are dusted with powdered sugar and arranged with tea lights on a water-blue platter. Photo courtesy of Denise Vivaldo.
