    Fabulous Parties is a stunning book full of gorgeous colorful photos and clever themes for any style of party you might want to create. The recipes are terrific and not too difficult. The food and cocktails along with those spectacular decorations and flowers will no doubt wow your guests. If you enjoy entertaining with style you must buy this book. Even professional party organizers and caterers could probably find some ideas in this book. I can't wait to make my next party. I will definitely be using some of the ideas I've found here.

    Fabulous Parties is indeed fabulous. The entire book is a work of art. I just love leafing through the pages and looking at the many beautiful images. This book is pretty enough to sit on my coffee table, yet practical enough to use as a reference guide for elegant entertaining. It shows how to create the appropriate theme for that special occasion. The creative and artfully done floral displays and table settings are inspiring. The floral and food combinations can each stand alone as a work of art; when put together, they are magnificent. The colorful images are presented alongside the appropriate menus to create the whole picture. I look forward to trying the many delectable, yet easy to follow, recipes. I can't wait to show my friends how special THEY are when they come to one of MY fabulous parties.
