There are few things better than a damn good party. Which is why we wanted to ask a few of our favorites in the industry (specifically, Jennifer Zabinski of JZ Events, Olivier Cheng of Olivier Cheng Catering and Cheree Berry of Cheree Berry Paper) how they flawlessly pull off a perfect party every time. 

But what’s even better is that this summer, we’ve partnered with all three of these professional partiers to bring you themed party packages delivered directly to your door in the Hamptons and beyond. To learn how you can throw the perfect party without lifting a finger, check out Destination Hamptons for the details.
