From picking the theme, creating a menu, and deciding on favours, every detail should be carefully attended to and executed with love. Get the delightfully straightforward secrets for planning a shower, dozens of creative ideas for decorating and food, and endlessly helpful advice to throw memorable and personalized showers with two new books that guide even the first-time hostess through the intricate shower-throwing process.

Readers learn to incorporate the details that make the difference with expert advice such as always use real flowers, find a trinket or sprig of something to tie to the ribbon on packages, such as an ornament, a button, a fresh flower or a spring of rosemary, freeze raspberries in ice cubes for your punch, serve food in striking dishes, like orange sherbet in a hollowed out orange half, or tropical fruit salad in a fresh coconut half, incorporate holidays whenever possible, give shower favours away in small, stylized stockings at Christmastime; decorate with fresh potted Shamrocks for a shower near St. Patrick's day and give fresh potted herbs as favours.From a Sunday brunch, a fancy luncheon, or a relaxed evening get-together, these handy party guides offer creative ideas and simple, sound advice to make life's most important celebrations something to remember.

Excerpts

Introduction The happy clatter of silver, the soft pinkness of rose petals, the rich taste of chocolate, the laughter of close friends. The gift of a wedding shower is the most personal and likely the most cherished gift you can give to someone who is getting married. The shower is not only a way to honor a person you care about, but it is also a chance to create a sense of celebration and intimacy and a chance to create treasured memories with family and friends that will last a lifetime.
