Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hey, so you're not Martha Stewart. Entertaining can be scary--whether for 6 or 60, and it's just as intimidating for some whether it's an elegant dinner or a kids' birthday party. Entertaining for Wimps, the latest in the bestselling Wimps series, shows precisely how to conquer the hosting demon. Each appealing photo helps to break down and simplify the process. Ordinary people are shown carrying out delightfully creative, common-sense ideas for entertaining. Amusing anecdotes and great advice reveal the secrets to making any event a success. Planning basics range from choosing the guests to deciding on a menu: you'll find etiquette tips; directions for setting up the bar; ideas for preparing decorations and creating an enticing atmosphere, and ways to convey that you're throwing the hottest party in town. There's special advice for formal entertaining, including weddings, and suggestions for theme parties (an opera supper, a luau) that really have style. Plus: stay organized with a series of invaluable checklists.
