Teach me how to be a great host. I'm hosting a dinner party for my SO's birthday in September. Give me some tips to make everyone (including the birthday boy and ME) feel relaxed and happy.

We hosted a Christmas Eve party last year, which went okay, but I felt flustered much of the night, trying to help serve (we have a VERY small kitchen) the food people brought, etc., while SO played entertainment director. This time up, I will be cooking it all myself. I guess my primary question is how do I not become flustered, while trying to do it all?
