I love friends and cocktails but HATE entertaining, cooking, cleaning, yadda yadda. This gave many practical tips and ideas that actually had me looking forward to giving a party!
ANYONE looking for simple entertaining ideas that WORK will love this book.
Well, I decided I needed to get over that. Along with some decent cookbooks, I picked up this book in my local library and LOVED it! In addition to some wonderful advice, Paula dispels the "perfection" myth, proving all a good host needs is a little organization and a lot of heart. :o) If your guests are made to feel like you REALLY want them there, they won't care if the soup is blue (ala Bridget Jones) or the cat licked all the salt off of the mixed nuts. Serve enough alcohol, and they won't even notice.
Paula also throws in some funny stories, facts and quotes. I enjoyed the book so much, I went ahead and bought myself a copy so I can refer to it whenever I'm planning something. It never fails to a) give me confidence and b) make me chuckle.
easy that you'll wonder how you ever had a party or had overnight guests before.
The pressure is off after reading about how to set up for a party, what to serve,
how to clean up, etc.
A must read for old and new host/hostesses alike.
