Here's How To Throw A Party Like Taylor Swift

by Maggie Malach

There ain't no party like a Taylor Swift party 'cause a Taylor Swift party is an over-the-top, star-studded, Instagram-friendly affair. On June 14, the "Bad Blood" singer took a break from her 1989 World Tour to throw Jaime King a bridal shower. As evidenced by my social media feeds, it was a pretty bumpin' event, which is no surprise, given Swift's party-planning history. The guest list was sourced by Swift's A-list little black book. Sarah Hyland, Hailee Steinfeld, Gigi Hadid, Haim, Serayah and Joey King were all in attendance. (Whew!)

Additionally, Swift made sure to stock up in props group photos, another staple at her soirees. Lastly, she made sure everyone was having a good time. (I mean, how could you not?) The singer frequently shares snaps from her parties, be it her 25th birthday celebration, her BFF Abigail's birthday surprise, or Fifth Harmony singer Camila Cabello's birthday. Swift clearly knows how to throw a good rager, so, like pretty much every other aspect of her glittery life, I want to emulate it. I bet you do too.

Want to throw an epic shindig of Taylor Swift proportions? I've got your handy guide right here. (Ed Sheeran sold separately.)
