Los Angeles-based hostess Stephanie Booth Shafran shares her secrets for perfect parties and takes the art of entertaining to new heights. From the table settings to the decor to the color-coordinated menus, every party she hosts showcases a myriad of inspired elements. Chapter by chapter, Stephanie shows readers how to set the stage for eight parties, from an elegant housewarming to a classic California pool party, to a festive Christmas brunch.
Each chapter ends with great tips, from entertaining alfresco to having parties for a charitable purpose. She also includes a guide to her party essentials: invitations, flowers, tablescapes, linens, seating, the bar, and select recipes—including cocktails—and helpful guidelines for assembling unique cheese and charcuterie platters.
