No, the last good party you attended, the one where there was a theme with real food and yummy drinks and decorations to match and people actually talked to you.… See more details below
Remember the last good party you attended? No, not the office mixer where the chips were served from the bag, you had to mix your own drink, and the conversational topic was the latest child-rearing theory. No, the last good party you attended, the one where there was a theme with real food and yummy drinks and decorations to match and people actually talked to you. That's the kind of party we are talking about. And sadly, that's the kind of party that is harder and harder to find-until now.
Sorority sisters Kristina "Morgan" Rose and Deandra "Brooksie" Brooks are here with step-by-step party plans, including themes and concepts, decoration designs, menus and recipes, signature cocktails, and tips to make your event the party that everyone's talking about. With "A Word About" specific issues such as how much alcohol to buy per guest, and humorous quizzes, rants, and Top Ten lists, the only thing more fun than this book is the party you'll be inspired to throw because of it.

Finally! A party planning book that focuses on the party itself. Too many books in the home entertaining section are either cookbooks disguised as party books or professional event planning portfolios. This book strikes the perfect balance. With easy ideas and practical advice, it really is a guide people can use. Plus it's absolutely hysterical! Explained in the first person by Morgan and Brooksie - sorority girls meet modern Laverne and Shirley - you'll laugh out loud as they describe who is a pretend boyfriend (versus who is not) and explain the sorority's risk management policy (ex-boyfriends are less dangerous than fireworks, but deadlier than lawn darts). It may be nonfiction, but I was completely sucked in like I was reading the latest chic lit novel.
