Format: Hardcover
If you're left a little confused on how to dress up your party, "Flair: Exquisite Invitations, Lush Flowers, and Gorgeous Table Settings" can come to your rescue.

In this richly illustrated book, party planner Joe Nye offers advice in three areas--paper components, flowers and table settings--that will turn an ordinary party into a special event. Themes for parties range from casual patriotic-hued events to more formal black and white dinners. These are not quick and easy dinners. He advises hiring a calligrapher, for example, to handle invitations, but at other times, encourages shopping at consignment shops to find just the right, perhaps obscure, item.

While all the chapters show flair and creativity, I found the section on flowers especially helpful, since he indicates his favorite flowers but then offers advice on how to cut and arrange them and identifies by name for easy reference.

Included is a list of sources for obtaining some items and advice on cleaning silver.

A simple book with real advice at a great price. Martha has some competition here. The color combinations and advice are so do-able, I can not wait for a next party!

I admire Joe Nye's sense of style and risque ventures with color. He proffers wonderful, useful, practical advice that can be applied to a range of budgets. Joe and I share a love of using carnations and alstroemeria in arrangements for home entertaining. I was particularly taken with his apparent affection for shades of pink, yellow, and blue! Even if one cannot afford to employ a calligrapher, one can certainly apply the principals Mr. Nye suggests to create a similar effect. (I love it that he suggested having a calligrapher to create a "master copy" that can then be duplicated! I'm a firm believer in that when I'm pinching pennies!) Overall, an excellent read, and the photos are magnificent!

Purchased the book based on the friendship the author has with our Nebraska family. Joe speaks of an era in which our mother's lived and it brings back such wonderful memories of bygone days and serves as a reminder that those days NOT be BYGONE. Taking time and with some emphasis on elegant, entertaining can be FUN, FUN FUN!!!!! Thanks for the memories, Joe
