I don't paticularly like to cook but I love to throw parties and especially like the decorating/theme part of the planning process.

i was at cheryl's book signing 2 days ago at a local Pottery Barn, to see Cheryl and grab one of her books. She is incredibly personal, was excellent at remembering small details about those of us standing in line waiting for her to sign our books and the food decorating ideas she had displayed for all of us only made you want to be a part of her parties even more.

Having only browsed the sections of the book that really caught my eye (this is more then 50%) i will say she fills each idea/ event with multiple photos and little tips along the way to help you understand how she got from the idea to the reality. that part helps the most. she's very honest about "doing what you can do best, and ordering out on the rest". she emphasis making the party and entertaining your focus and not all the labor to do everything yourself. the book really does provide direction to mimic a party she's done or just pull a few details here and there.

its nice to see her personal examples and having been at her quick demos during the book signing you can tell that she really has done all of this on her own and she's sharing her ideas with you. its a great resource to have, and its filled with tidbits to make each party easier: my personal favorite "The Bar Review" a quick guide to how much alcohol/food/appetizer you'll need to keep your crowd pleased! thanks Cheryl!

CherylStyle founder Cheryl Najafi puts her creative and low-stress party planning concepts into an easy-to-read reference book. She believes it's life's little moments that make up the important parts of our lives and shows readers creative and innovative ways to make those moments memorable.

Like most husbands, I leave party planning to my wife (not out of the disinterested laziness associated with most husbands, but having been chased out with a vegetable peeler). I got this book to help her get great ideas and lower the stress level during the planning stage. It's full of innovative ideas, expert tips and just plain fun.

"You're So Invited: Panic Less, Play More, and Get Your Party On!" breaks the conventional rules with great visuals, photographs, and illustrations for with every tip and detail. Cheryl's fresh approach to entertaining will help us (my wife) plan our next party without worry. That way, we can focus on having fun with our guests.

This book belongs in every kitchen. An excellent book to give the party planners in your life!

I've never been excited about hosting parties before. It always seemed like too much work. If we're getting together with friends, I'd rather meet anyplace besides our home.

But this book has given me all kinds of ways to make entertaining easier. Even though I'll never match up to Cheryl or Martha Stewart or any of the other party "greats," I now feel like I can host an event that friends will enjoy. Better yet, I'll enjoy it too!

Cheryl has created new and original content to help us entertain and live better. Her unique style of narrative, infused with humor and touches of irony, imparts knowledge while entertaining and delighting us. Great book, great gift, buy it for anyone looking to get more out of entertaining and enjoying friends.

My wife relies on Cheryl's advice anytime we entertain so that we ensure that the focus is on our guests instead of the host. She normally visits the CherylStyle website for direction, but now with the book she can read up on ideas whenever and wherever.

If you panic when thinking of hosting a party or are Party Host-Challenged then "You're So Invited: Panic Less, Play More, and Get Your Party On!" by Cheryl Najafi is the book for you!

Most party hosting books talk about the high-pressure parties like weddings, birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, etc., but this book talks about throwing a party for the off-beat reasons - "Martini bash", "Garden-get-together", "Tween Spa" and my favorite -- "Guys-Only Scotch & Cigar party". This is an easier way for the Party Host-Challenged to start and experiment before throwing the bigger pressure party.

This book is full of ideas that are easy to relate to and understand that make the party your own. One of the things I like most about this book is that Cheryl's most important focus is on her guests and not what she did to put the party together (and yes she did a lot!).

I found myself wanting more hints and ideas. This book is a definite must read if you are throwing a party for yourself or anyone else. Cheryl makes you think of ways to make your party creative, affordable, interesting, different and most of all, fun.

Just didn't have the party ideas I was looking for. I got some ideas on the first 10 pages. Maybe those were not gatherings I wanted to do.
