Sure. No. 1 what should we did. I think the most important thing about Emmy party at home is about proper seating. People think they have 20 people at their house then they only have seating for 6. Get some big pillow. Get comfortable in front of the couch. Make sure your guest can sit with unobstructed view that's the most important thing you want to know. Don't talk so much. I need to listen. Exactly. Seating arjt you are talking about bean bag and other things position in a way not necessarily boy girl boy girl. In I'm not worried, snuggle with whoever you like. Boy or girl doesn't matter to me. Be careful. Be comfortable. Fun Bali love making these. If you have an Emmy party printout the ballot. Everyone get there or bring the ballot with them and I love to play a little game. Everyone in advance which is who they think will win. The person who gets the most vote gets the prize. Make the prices silly. Everyone has to bring a regift or those gift cards that you are never going to use from a store that you forgot about. Make it simple. I like it. Theme food. Something along. I don't want to spend time in the kitchen because I want to watch the show but would I say make one signature cocktail t.inspired by a show. Mad men. Gym of thrown whatever you want. Whatever you are rooting for. Breaking bad. So do one signature cocktail that you can serve to everyone. This is a bloody Mary still early here in L.A.
