    DescriptionRenowned event planner David Stark reveals whimsical, artistic, unexpected designs often created from sustainable, industrial, or low-cost materials to inspire readers--whether planning a wedding, dinner party, or holiday gathering--looking for ideas for their own events. Twenty-five of David Stark's events are featured--both private celebrations and charitable galas-- and showcase how he developed the inspiration for the overarching theme, color palette, and the thoughtful, coordinated details he's known for, and which truly make an event memorable. From the New York Metropolitan Opera opening gala to Target's large-scale charitable events and pop-up shops, David Stark's inimitable influence is sweeping the design world--and thanks to his books, becoming more accessible for his legions of fans. No matter the event, "The Art of the Party" is sure to inspire creativity and become an essential resource for years to come.

    Review quote
    "There are two ways to enjoy David Stark's new book, "The Art of the Party." You can admire it as a coffee table book full of images from his show-stopping events, or treat it like a handbook for imbuing your own parties with the "joie de vivre "and excitement Stark's events are known for." --"Elle Decor" "David Stark--joy, daring, humor, charm, freedom of expression, generosity of spirit, a relaxed elegance, a perfectly calibrated measure of extravagance, and a disciplined, exquisitely articulated commitment to beauty. Along with a deep, abiding social conscience. And a lot of laughter and a beautiful friendship. Maybe the best thing about David is the way he listens: he listens and listens, then he thinks and thinks, and then he makes magic." --Mariska Hargitay "When we held our "HuffPost" Game Changers party two years ago, we new we needed a designer as innovative, thoughtful, and risk-taking as the people we were honoring.

He is all that and more. He has great taste, a fabulous sense of humor, and is blessed with an uncanny sixth sense about how to present an event so that everyone knows when they walk in the door that they are in for an unforgettable exp
