It's no secret that when I'm not designing clothes, you will most likely find me enjoying my other passion: entertaining! My new book, Prêt-a-Party, gives readers a fun and detailed account of this. From a spirited Couples’ Cook-off to a kid-friendly “Primp Your Ride” bike picnic, to an elegant Silver-and-White Christmas dinner, you can read about dozens of creative ideas to inspire a fresh take on entertaining.
My philosophy is simple: create your own occasions to create your own fun. The themes, colors, seasonality, and activities demonstrated for each party shows you to how dazzle guests with simple, yet unexpected touches. Modernize the traditional bridal shower with a refreshingly retro sewing circle. Turn a ladies’ tea on its head by having girlfriends over for an afternoon tequila tasting. Celebrate your favorite cause by hosting a festive outdoor supper, like the one featured on a Brooklyn rooftop garden.
Featuring unique ideas for decoration, recipes for cocktails and key dishes, and tips for throwing everything together in an easy and enjoyable way, I hope that Prêt-a-Party will be embraced by a new generation of hosts and hostesses seeking spirited and unconventional good times.
