Alas, there’s an app for that! Actually, there are plenty to help you throw your next celebration. Here are a few free apps to download so the life of your next party is the event itself:

You might have the perfect menu planned, but which drinks tastes best with the food? Hello Vino contains a vast database of wines and provides info on each, such as flavors and food pairings. If you’re in a rush, just enter the dishes on the menu and the app will select the best vino for you.

Don’t just invite guests to your home—have them dress for the occasion. Theme parties are tons of fun, and Partyology allows you to search thousands of photos for inspiration. The Pinterest-style app even lets you contact event planners, bands and bartenders for more help.
