How to plan the perfect celebration, despite the weather

One of the best things about great summer weather is gathering with friends and family to share food and fun under the sun. At least, that's the plan. But as we know, the weather doesn't always make the perfect guest at a party. In spite of your planning, the day may turn fickle and suddenly you're faced with rain, wind or even soaring temperatures. While you can't control Mother Nature, there are ways to prevent weather from ruining your special event. Here are some tips for weather-proofing your party.

- Invite only as many guests as you can comfortably entertain inside your house in case you need to move inside at the last minute.

- Rent a tent or canopy - it adds fun, elegance and drama to your party, even in good weather. And it makes great protection if the temperatures soar.

- Rent heaters or fans to keep the guests warm if the weather is cool - and keep them cool if it gets too hot.

- Rent individual umbrellas or parasols f...
