Tori Spelling is an actress whose career spans theater, television, and film. She’s received critical praise for her work in such independent films as Trick and The House of Yes. She both starred in and executive produced the comedy series So NoTORIous on VH1 and the popular reality series Tori & Dean: Inn Love and Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood on Oxygen, and the current remake of Beverly Hills 90210. She lives with her family in Los Angeles.
Ok I have to admit I love Tori (hence the title of my review). What I love about her latest book is how down to Earth she really is (reading her stories you would think she was the mom next door talking about party planning). She has some fantastic ideas on how to make your own party without spending a gagillion dollars (yes that is a real amount). Everything show is tastefully done and she even provides you with some recipes (amazingly enough yes this girl does cook). If you are someone, like myself, who needs beginner information on party planning and plenty of ideas then this book is for you (it comes complete with stories from Tori's everyday life, which is always humerous).
A fun read. Lots of cool ideas. She is quirky and funny plus how she includes her friends during all of these parties is hilarious. I have used lots of the tips for putting together small dinners or weekend things for my kids. Great pics.
I recommend this book for all people wanting to add a little extra touch to dinner parties, birthday parties, or just hang outs with friends! A lot of great tips and pictures to get the perfect event every time.
I have wanted this book for a while, I think my expectations were just really high. There are some fun ideas, but I expected more how-tos, more pictures, more DIY ideas. It's supposed to somewhat focus on throwing upscale parties when you are on a budget, but then her ideas, like throwing a spa party where everyone wears terry cloth robes and there is fresh lavender and champagne seems a little far-fetched for someone on a budget! Overall, it was just okay!
I bought this book for some party planning ideas and tips, and it is chocked full with great ideas! It also proved to be a great coffee table book too...when I have people over they love thumbing through it and looking at the pictures, and getting ideas themselves, which then almost always sparks a conversation in-and-of-itself. It's a great buy!
Love this book! I read many party idea books from the library, and this is one of the few I have bought for my personal library--it's one of my top 3 fave party planning books. The ideas are practical, fun, and several were new to me. Tori's ideas have really put polish on my parties. I'd love to see her write another party book!
i would have given the book 5 stars if it had had more diy craft ideas/instructions, i thought there would b more seeing as how tori is such a crafter herself, overall the book is absolutly a great read with tons of cool party ideas, loved it!! she just needs to write a childrens party book now!
