Hilary Duff ''loves'' to throw house parties.

The 'Younger' actress has admitted she enjoys entertaining people at her home and will often throw open her doors to guests and host a casual gathering, although she prefers it when the bash turns into a ''random dance party'' with pals kicking off their shoes to jump in her pool.

Speaking about her night life preferences, the blonde beauty said: ''I do love to entertain at my house and I like it when it's a little casual. I live in LA so I like to throw all my doors open and do indoor/outdoor.

''I like something casual, where it could turn into a random dance party or everyone can end up in the pool. I do appreciate getting dressed and people making an effort, but I like feeling comfortable enough to kick your shoes off.

''Like organized chaos.''

And the 'Lizzie Maguire' star - who starred in the hit children's television series for three years - has revealed she whips up a few healthy canapés for guests, and stores the alcoholic refreshments in her ''vintage bathtub''.

Speaking about how she caters for such events, she explained: ''A few favourites are my honey garlic chicken, trays of colourful roasted vegetables, grilled fruit - like pineapple and peaches- or my famous bacon-wrapped dates.

''I have these cute vintage bathtubs that I fill with Stella Artois or whatever I'm serving that night.

Meanwhile, the mother of one- who has four-year-old Luca with her ex-husband Mike Comrie - has admitted she ''always worries'' about her son and can't stop feeling nervous about how her son's life will go as she wants it all to be ''perfect''.

Speaking previously, she said: ''He only makes every day matter so much more and the joy that I feel, the purpose, everything is so much more heightened. It's just, he's really amazing. [As a mother], you're always worrying. Everyone wants their kids' lives to go perfectly, which is obviously not possible all the time. But it's so fun. I'm so lucky.''
