Description
A beautifully illustrated guide to parties that are simply great-from a rising lifestyle and entertaining guru

With his popular book, articles, and design products, Matthew Mead is one of today's leading experts on creative decorating and relaxed entertaining. Now, in his new book, Mead gives hosts all the know-how they need to entertain with confidence-without spending a lot of time or money.

Mead starts with the basics: the simple white tableware, clear glassware, and essential serving pieces everyone should have on hand for easy, laid-back entertaining. He then shows how, with a little imagination and very little money, hosts can dress up these plain table settings and create a stunning custom décor for any theme or occasion. To demonstrate how to put this simple entertaining philosophy into practice, Mead offers eight foolproof party plans, from a Lazy Day Brunch and a Summer Barbecue to a Good Spirits Cocktail Party and a Holiday Open House. For each sample party, Mead provides decorating ideas, serving suggestions, and delicious recipes-everything people need for a memorable, stress-free get-together. Throughout, more than 350 gorgeous color photographs by Quentin Bacon inspire readers and illustrate each party idea.

Complete with a comprehensive source guide as well as lots of practical tips on last-minute entertaining, stocking a bar, storage, linens and candles, and more, Entertaining Simple is simply indispensable for everyone who loves to entertain.
