About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
In this richly illustrated book, party planner Joe Nye offers advice in three areas--paper components, flowers and table settings--that will turn an ordinary party into a special event. Themes for parties range from casual patriotic-hued events to more formal black and white dinners. These are not quick and easy dinners. He advises hiring a calligrapher, for example, to handle invitations, but at other times, encourages shopping at consignment shops to find just the right, perhaps obscure, item.
While all the chapters show flair and creativity, I found the section on flowers especially helpful, since he indicates his favorite flowers but then offers advice on how to cut and arrange them and identifies by name for easy reference.
Included is a list of sources for obtaining some items and advice on cleaning silver.
It's a little over-the-top in design, but more than worth it because you can get lots of super ideas about tablscapes that you might not have thought about doing.
Extremely good close-up photos that help show all the detail work.
