My daughter made her "Bath Crystals" recipe for gifts last December in some Ikea glass jars. What a hit! The salts were wonderful house and hostess gifts. I fully intend to pick up her other books because I have been so impressed with this one.
A quick glance through this book will inspire anyone who wants to set a gracious table and have a fun gathering. You don't need expensive items to create a table that is a conversation starter and lets the guests know that they were invited to a "special event".
This book would be a great housewarming and/or shower gift. Newlyweds will love the parties from football to oriental themes, it's a NOW book.
I also appreciate that she has all the recipes at the back of the book for the suggested party ideas. In one case she actually tells you in a very simple manner how to turn one of the appy parties into a dinner party using the same foods but simply changing the amount or how it's served.
Something she dedicates a chapter to is hostess gifts -- both receiving them and giving them. I tend to think hostess gifts are VERY important and am delighted to finally see a book that includes this important aspect.
Whether you're someone who wants the entire party spelled out in an easy how-to or you simply want some ideas for inspiration, this is one book that fits the bill.
