Imparting fresh ideas and inspiration for knockout events on any budget, At Home with Carolyne Roehm follows the calendar’s seasons to provide year-round suggestions for place settings, floral arrangements, and menus. Emphasizing creativity and natural elements, Carolyne Roehm’s tips are not exclusively geared toward elegant functions: Picnics, cozy fireside meals for two, afternoon teas, and formal dinner parties are treated with equal verve. Drawing on ingredients and imagery appropriate for spring, summer, winter, and fall and all the major holidays, this handsome collection yields a trove of simple but sophisticated recipes along with perfect tabletop and decorative accents to accompany them. Biscuit sandwiches of Mustard-Glazed and Smoked Cheddar; Shrimp and White Bean Salad; Zucchini and Watercress Soup; and Fudgy Rum Chocolate Cake are just a few of the delicious and easy-to-prepare dishes. For successful festive occasions that friends and family will remember for years, from a grand New Year’s Eve gala to a spring brunch with a floral theme, At Home with Carolyne Roehm is itself glorious cause for celebration.

At Home with Carolyne Roehm, is one of the best and most inspirational entertaining books I have ever read. As soon as I was done reading, I was wanting to entertain like crazy! Miss Roehm uses simple and easy methods for entertaining, that will leave your guests wondering how you do it? Forget Martha Stewart, Carolyne Roehm is who is in! I hope Miss Roehm will continue writing more books, and for further reading I suggest investing in A Passion for Flowers by Carolyne Roehm and the tour de force Seasonal Notebooks by Carolyne Roehm. Both well get you into the gardening mode, and will make you (if not already) a devotee of Carolyne Roehm.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The photography is incredible. Inspirational entertaining for virtually any occassion. Elegance must be the word to use. but doable. Martha Stewart has nothing on Carolyne Roehm. Today is Thanksgiving and I've been inspired to create special memories.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
