4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty celebrations, August 8, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The cover photo is probably my favorite. This book has several different party themes ,which they break down in step by step detail so you can organize your event. Many checklists are included, which would be helpful to stay on track. There is also a section with recipes...all appear to be pretty simple to accomplish and tasty. There is a good amount of photographs in this book which is also a plus. This book kind of reminds me of Tori Spellings entertaining book in how it is set up so if you enjoy that book you would probably not mind adding this one to your collection. One thing I enjoyed was the use of flowers in the different celebrations showcased. If you like to entertain you will find some ideas in this new party guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super suppers, August 8, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great book! Lots of wonderful photos and tasty recipes to be completed in 30 minutes or less, great for the busy family. I really enjoy the color photos on each page. They include topics for families to discuss at the dinner table which is a fun feature. Also different sides are suggested which is always helpful when planning a meal. Overall this book would be a great addition to any kitchen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet eye candy, August 8, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is wonderful eye candy and showcases 6 sweet tables. This book gives you quality photographs of each completed table and then breaks it down by each sweet telling you how to reproduce it. It also gives you basic baking tips and cake recipes at the end of the book. All the tables are beautifully executed, I only wish there was more! Great book on the ever popular dessert table.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tasty meals ; lacking photos, August 8, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I received this book today and was really looking forward to it. The recipes sound delicious and overall I want to try most of them. The one disappointment is I typically enjoy a cookbook due to beautiful photos and this book lacks photographs. There are two small sections with a handful of pics of finished dishes. I find pictures not only add to the aesthetic of a cookbook, but also help to show how a completed dish should look. I think that is my only complaint. The recipes all sound yummy and straightforward. You will enjoy this book if you are a top chef fan and are looking for delicious family meals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous fun, April 27, 2012
This review is from: Pop Party (Hardcover)
This book is way better than the first (pop bakery). You can tell the author has come a long way with her skills and styling or is working with a great team. You will find many cute cake pops in this book, but in addition you will be pleasantly surprised to find a few cake recipes and party props (pompoms, paper roses and piñatas to name a few). This is just a fun book and I am excited to try some of the pops out, but think I will tackle the infamous pink ruffle cake first. If you enjoy baking and parties you will get a kick out of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious Americana, April 26, 2012
This book is wonderful...it contains a picture for every recipe which I really appreciate. There are many classic dishes that I can see myself referring back to time and time again. Some of these recipes were included in past MSL publications , but I enjoy having this consolidated volume to reference when I feel like good old American comfort food. Definitely a worthwhile purchase as it is useful and beautiful.

This is a fun book for any lover of Alice in Wonderland. Many of the projects require basic sewing skills. The photographs are great and I will find a lot of inspiration to host my own Wonderland party.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, April 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was excited to receive this book and there are some beautiful images, but it did feel like something was lacking. I think I would have enjoyed seeing more than 4 parties showcased. Maybe less of the wordiness in the front half of the book too. It does have some cute ideas, I just wish it included a few more recipes and a greater assortment of party concepts/themes( the four parties in this book were for adults: cowboys and lace, spa brunch, game night and cocktails in caftans).
