A wonderful surprise! This well written and charming book offers an enormous number of fun ideas for all kinds of celebrations. It is what I would term "nouveau-traditional," offering a wide range of ideas suitable for children of all ages - as well as adult crowds. Honestly, it would make an excellent gift for any young couple inclined to raise children in a festive, family oriented home. Obviously, it has a very British slant which adds a fun comparison for our American versions of recipes and holiday celebrations.

I bought as a gift for my wife's birthday. She loved it, MAJOR brownie-points! Now we sit each night and read it together. We both appreciate the focus on traditional family holidays. Pippa is a true lady!

I bought this for my law student daughter. It has proven to be a distraction from her studies because it's so fun to read! I may need to confiscate it until after exams!

This book is so detailed and wonderfully written. A complete necessity for first timers in entertaining like myself. Easy recipes and beautiful illustrations. Highly recommend purchasing.

While other book seller sites had folks dis the book for not reading more like a cookbook with tables, charts and lists, the general consensus among me and friends is - put the remote away! Refreshing ideas, a great feeling of hearing the 'insider' trivia we always knew accompanied so many recipes and traditions. And, for us in the US who haven't had the pleasure - we are as delighted to read about foods and customs across The Pond as we are to include them in our personal favorite traditions. Wonderful work! Looking forward to the next!

Wonderful! A beautifully photographed book, filled with great ideas!  Ms. Middleton's recipe, decoration and activity suggestions are classic, easy to follow and fun. And, while good food, pretty props and a few well-planned activities help set the scene, Middleton emphasizes what really makes for a memorable party: spending time with those you love and enjoy the most! "Celebrate" proves that celebrations needn't be over-the-top or fussy.  This is a tasteful book, that will not only look great on your coffee table, but will be a good reference for years to come.

There are some very critical reviews of this book so I'm glad that I purchased this book prior to reading them. The book is a nice surprise. The photographs are beautiful and the recipes and holiday ideas are fun. As an  American I really enjoyed the British view of the celebrations. But, best of all, the book has a wonderful, happy quality that I can't quite put my finger on. Ms. Middleton comes across as warm and genuine and the book makes you want to have a holiday like that. Give it a chance--it will look good on your coffee table or shelf and just may inspire you, too.
