The first Martha Stewart entertaining book of the 21st century celebrates the best ideas, projects, and recipes from more than ten years of entertaining-related features in Martha Stewart Living magazine. Hundreds of tabletop ideas include easy, elegant napkin folds (turkey napkins for Thanksgiving, for instance) and napkin rings (heart-shaped breadsticks). There are place cards (held in miniature apples and pears) and place mats (bandana runners for a picnic), candles and other lighting ideas (jelly jar lanterns), presentation tips and techniques, flower arrangements (peony "nests"), bar ideas (snapdragon stirrers), and information on some of Martha's favorite collectible dinnerware and flatware.
Menus for memorable holidays, special occasions, and everyday evenings, along with recipes for featured dishes, complete the entertaining picture. And a source guide points readers to easy shopping. The good things concept -- beauty, simplicity, speed -- has never been better represented.
