InStyle Parties: The Complete Guide to Easy, Elegant Entertaining All Year Round

InStyle Parties: The Complete Guide to Easy, Elegant Entertaining All Year RoundI love planning parties. Whether it’s a dinner party with friends, a birthday party for my hubby or a New Year’s Eve bash, I really enjoy entertaining. What I don’t enjoy is the stress of coming up with new ideas and special touches that make my soiree memorable. I recently found the must-have resource for anyone that is looking to host a chic party without stress or guesswork.

* Complimentary Book Received for Review & Feature.

InStyle Parties is the ultimate go-to for throwing an affair to remember. This book offers expert ideas for hosting 15 unique celebrations, from dinners, game-day gatherings, and holiday festivities to boozy brunches, Oscar parties, and summertime soirees. What I really love about this book is that you not only get ideas for invitations, décor and prep, but you also get a customized menu of recipes, which includes a signature cocktail, which I have been known to do many times for my New Year’s party. You’ll find tons of inspiration in the pages of this book, along with a seamless timeline for party preparation, which for those of us who tend to be last minute ladies, it can be a much needed lifeline! We joke in my family about “hostess breakdown.” The struggle is real, folks.

The editors of InStyle magazine share their best hostess tips, including how to pair wines, create the perfect cheese plate, and plan your fabulous outfit. You’ll also find a list of more than 100 trusted resources for all your entertaining needs. The book is also packed with gorgeous photos that will give you endless entertaining inspiration.

With New Year’s Eve right around the corner, there are some fabulous ideas for décor, flowers and a special menu, including Lamb Meatballs with Arugula Pesto, Mini Cherry Cheesecakes with Oreo Crust and a Fizzy Ginger Punch recipe that sounds absolutely delicious. I can’t wait to try everything!

With InStyle Parties as your go-to party planner, you’ll find planning memorable events easier than you thought possible. This book would make a great gift for the holidays and is available now at Amazon.
