Known for her whimsical fashions, Lela Rose is also a popular and passionate hostess. From the spirited Couples' Cook-off to a kid-friendly Primp Your Ride bike picnic, to an elegant Silver-and-White Christmas dinner, in this book she presents dozens of creative ideas to inspire readers looking for a fresh take on entertaining. Rose's philosophy is simple: create your own occasions to create your own fun. The themes, colours, seasonality, and activities she concocts for each of her parties show you to how dazzle guests with simple yet unexpected touches. Modernize the traditional bridal shower with a refreshingly retro sewing circle. Turn ladies' tea on its head by having girlfriends over for an afternoon tequila tasting. Celebrate your favourite 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, Pret-a-Party will be embraced by a new generation of hosts and hostesses seeking spirited and unconventional good times.
