Description

Carolyne Roehm, one of America's leading tastemakers, trendsetters, and lifestyle experts showcases her passion for entertaining in this glorious sequel to "At Home with Carolyne Roehm."
In "A Passion for Parties," Carolyne Roehm presents her dazzlingly creative ideas for every kind of event, from a black-and-white dinner dance to a spring tulip celebration. Original themes, detailed decorating tips, gorgeous table settings and floral arrangements, as well as more than forty outstanding and surprisingly easy recipes-are all here to lend your next occasion the sumptuous touches that are the hallmarks of Carolyne Roehm's style.
The book offers practical advice and inspiration and even a way to partake in these breathtakingly exquisite events, both behind the scenes and as they take place.
Whether it is an intimate Valentine's Day in Paris or an Autumn Barn Dance for seventy, all of the events depicted here are equally splendid. Organized seasonally, the book features ideas for small gatherings (Christmas Dinner in Aspen) or big blowout events (a Fourth of July dinner with fireworks) and family festivities (a seventy-fifth birthday party, a Dickens-inspired Halloween; a children's Christmas cookie-decorating party). Recipes include Mini Lemon Crepes Stuffed with Lobster, Chilled Zucchini Soup with Toasted Coconut, Baby Back Ribs with Rhubarb Barbecue Sauce, and Bread Pudding with Bourbon Sauce.
As stunning and stylish as its author, and stamped with her inimitable flair, Carolyne Roehm's "A Passion for Parties" is a must for the party planner or daydreamer in us all.
