Clean Sweep: Pre-Party Playlist

Clean Sweep: Pre-Party Playlist

Andie Powers
Nov 10, 2011

Every host knows that high-adrenaline hour between preparing for your soiree and the arrival of the guests. You sit down, you stand up, you straighten the kitchen, you dust a shelf: in other words, you prepare for the moment that you can just relax and have fun at your party, rather than stress about the perfection and cleanliness of your space.

Having a playlist to psyche yourself up, calm nerves and remind us that parties are about having fun is important! Make sure everything is in its place, sit down, relax, have a cocktail and get ready to enjoy your friends and your home, with these tunes! Feel free to add your own to raise your spirits and get festive!
