Welcome to The Entertaining Issue, MyDomaine's fifth digital issue, featuring Kristin Cavallari and her stunning Tennessee home.

Cavallari, who you may know from her stint as a reality TV star on shows like Laguna Beach, The Hills, and Very Cavallari, or as the founder of Uncommon James, graciously opened the doors of her self-described quiet, peaceful farmhouse to us just a few months ago. The five-bedroom home is well-equipped to entertain groups—and Cavallari does host the occasional dinner party—but these days, she much prefers a different style of entertaining.

For Cavallari, hosting now means letting each of her three kids invite a friend over for a home-cooked meal or a sleepover in the upstairs playroom. Long gone are the themed parties she attended in high school and the clubs she visited while living in Los Angeles.

But that's the thing about entertaining: it's different for all of us.

So, whether you want to pull out all of the stops for the holidays, love to host impromptu game nights, or just want to learn how to be a better guest, we've got the tips and tricks you need.

We hope you join us as we explore what entertaining means today.
