Ali Larter's Entertaining Must-Haves Include Candles, Pretty Linens And A Good Drink

Ali Larter is a gorgeous actress, but you might not have known that she's also an entertaining guru. In her new book "Kitchen Revelry," Larter shows off her fabulous party ideas and recipes. And to celebrate, Domaine Home sat down with the Resident Evil star and found out her must-have items for throwing the ultimate shindig.

Larter told the site that candles along with a unique serving dish and pretty linens are essential. "When I’m feeling fancy, or when the occasion calls for it, I use Kim Seybert black, round placemats or Heath Ceramics linen runners," said Larter. "Classic and simple, these pieces can dress up any table."

And of course, Larter said no party is complete without a good drink. "It’s very important to always have one of your favorite bottles of something on hand. I like all kinds of reds, especially Cabs like Faust. Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque Champagne is so divine -- it’s always sitting in my leather and silver wine bucket," she said.
