Even the most dazzling events are showing less glitter in these cost-conscious times, says Washington, D.C., caterer Bill Homan, who has a few tips for prudent party-givers: For centerpieces, create a garden of potted herbs or arrange apples, lemons and other fruit into topiary trees.

And skip the extra dessert: Let them eat cake!
