EXCLUSIVE: Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan's Complete Guide To Throwing The Best Holiday Party Ever

Andy Warhol at the Factory, circa 1966.
What are some good theme ideas for holiday parties?

SD: It’s fun to go retro: Gatsby, 1950s California surfer, or go oceanic and fling a few starfish around. My personal must-attend fete looks like a 1970s freaky, psychedelic Andy Warhol Factory with tinfoil everywhere.

JA: I love a retro soiree. Anything that could be 1960s or 1970s.  I like the combo of mod and hippie, glam and groovy.  Everyone loves a fondue fête.
