RealSimple Celebrations

If you are someone who wishes to entertain but lacks the know-how to do so, this is a wonderful book. The good people at Real Simple magazine have laid out step-by-step instructions on how to throw great, low-key parties. Unlike some other Entertaining gurus, no one in this book makes you feel any pressure. The menus are elegant and easy, the decorations are doable and the tone is friendly. The focus here is about how entertaing is about friends and family. The book reads like having a talented girlfriend give you advice. I love this type of book but rarely purchase them (because how often do you reference them really?). This one, however, is high on my Christmas wish list. There are beautiful, inspirational photos and the templates for invitations and such are all available at Realsimple.com. Best of all, there is a wonderful wheel at the back to help you plan your shopping! -Rhiannon
