This review is from: Simple Stunning Parties at Home: Recipes, Ideas, and Inspirations for Creative Entertaining (Hardcover)
This is one fantastic book. My husband and I love to entertain at our cottage in the summer and I have used many ideas from this book. We enjoy theme-style get-togethers and I try and do tablescapes that compliment the menu and the theme. The author's ideas are unique yet simple and it is very easy to create your own versions of her parties.
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.
