Party season is just around the corner…will you be hosting any parties for Halloween or the upcoming holiday season? The book I’m featuring today is filled with gorgeous ideas for parties year around.
In the BNOTP Library: A Passion for Parties
Author: Carolyne Roehm
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- If I never followed a single idea is this gorgeous book and never gave another party, this is still a book I love pulling down from my bookshelf over and over again. It’s the kind of book you lose yourself in for an afternoon, a delicious extravagance from cover to cover. The photography is wonderful, as is always the case for any Carolyn Roehm book. There are lots of beautiful table settings for us to oooh and ahhh over.
- Carolyne covers parties for every season and holiday in this book. Even though I’ll never host a party as grand as those featured in A Passion for Parties, there are lots of great takeaway ideas on every page. I LOVE the tablecloth and table decorations for her Dickens-inspired Halloween party on pages 112-113. Carolyne can even make a spooky, cob-web-covered Halloween table look elegant! 🙂
- The book is laid out by the season, Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, featuring all the holidays that fall within each season, plus, a few additional celebrations like birthdays. Carolyne gives us “blue and white” fans a thrill with her “Birthday Bash for The Beaty Girls” party. Another one of my favorite books by her is A Passion for Blue and White. This book really has it all with gorgeous decorating ideas, beautiful table settings, stunning floral arrangements and ideas for hosting wonderful parties for any season or holiday.
