Format: Paperback
As an award-winning professional event planner who has been in the business for over 15 years, I figured there probably wasn't a whole lot I was going to learn by reading Patty's book, but just in case there was, I thought I'd buy it. I'm so glad I did! There were TONS of ideas that I know will work not only for my clients' parties, but also will be fun to do when I'm planning a party for my own friends.
Most are easy to duplicate and adapt to every situation...and Patty even provided a grid to help the "thematically challenged" find a theme to fit any occasion! :)
The ideas are bulleted and easy to read. And if you need a little more of an explanation or "how-to," Patty's provided that also for many of the projects.
If you are a newbie host, or are like me, and have thrown hundreds...thousands...of parties, BUY THIS BOOK! You'll use it again and again.

Because my family loves to party, I'm always looking for ideas that are easy and fun. Patty Sachs delivers again! Whenever I am planning a celebration, I know that her books will help... and this one is the best yet! The book makes finding ideas so simple. It's like having my own personal party planner! (Only less expensive!)

Format: Paperback
This book is a waste of your money and time if you are looking for creative ideas for entertaining your party guests. Here is a statement for the New Year's Eve party: "New Year's Eve celebration often includes the whole family, with game playing, lively competitions, music, and food." (p.66). Yeah, right - this is extremely helpful to me to know when I am organizing such a party... Besides, this book does not have any concrete examples or suggestions on how to make parties fun. Instead of this book I would recommend one by Andrea Campbell "Great Games for Great Parties" - a lot more mileage for the same price.

I had my own celebration just reading the party suggestions from this very very funny and creative woman. She knows the party-biz and if you're giving a 'teeny-tiny tea party' or a BIG SPLASH -- you'll find ideas for any kind of celebration in this BIG BOOK! A must for every home.

There are far too many good party idea books on the market to consider, making this one a waste. There are very few original and creative ideas given in this book. I wish I hadn't spent the money on it.

When I bought this book I was thinking that it will has a good ideas for parties but, it does not have any. There are a lot of good party book out there. Some of the ideas are too embarrassing to do with your guest. If you ask me to buy this book again, my answer will be not.

Format: Paperback
I'm always interested in new ideas for parties because I give at least 4 big (50 people or more) parties a year. This book did have plenty of ideas but very little in the way of concrete details. For example, under the MAGIC idea on page 94, Patty Sachs suggests for activities "the guests perform amazing & amusing feats" and that the host "hire a professional magician to really dazzle & bewilder your guests." This is helpful? This book is filled with truely lame and uninspired suggestions. A big disappointment. If you are looking for a party book, The Penny Whistle series is the way to go.
