When I sat down to write this BNOTP library post, I couldn’t remember exactly when I had purchased the book I’m sharing this evening. I looked it up on Amazon and it was on February 19th of this year.
Seeing that made me smile because it made perfect sense. I was undoubtedly looking for some relief from the cold, drab days of winter, a reminder that summer would be here again in all its vibrant beauty. It’s the perfect book to share as a follow-up to this morning’s post.
In the BNOTP Library: Essentially Lilly: A Guide to Colorful Entertaining
Author: Lilly Pulitzer
Hardcover: 192 pages
Book size: 10.3 x 10 x 0.8
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- Lilly Pulitzer was known far and wide for her ability to throw a fabulous party and make it look effortless. This book is filled with lots of beautiful photos of pretty tables, party decorations and actual pictures of parties as they are occurring.
- Lots of recipes for party foods and party drinks. I’d love to try some for a future party.
- If you’re a fan of the clothing, you will want this book. There are some wonderful pics of Lilly from the early days when she was just getting started and the book goes into some of the history of how the Lilly brand came to be. I loved seeing all the Lilly clothes on real people, too. This is definitely one of the most cheerful, happy books you’ll ever own!
Pssst: This is also one of those books that looks beautiful without its dust jacket. The cover is the same as the dust jacket. Love that!
