excuse to throw an incredibly good party, right? It’s time to call
up your besties and enlist their help, ‘cause you’re gonna need
some major girl power to throw the swankiest soiree of the season.

rockin’ music, right? Stock your stereo with a dance-ready
playlist. And don’t forget some patriotic favorites! We’ll be
jamming to “Country Road,” “Born in the U.S.A.” and Katy
Perry’s “Firework” all night long.
What are your party plans, babes?
