The holidays are upon us. Are you the party goer or the party host? I have an indispensable book for the entertainer. Perfect Table Settings by Denise Vivaldo.
Perfect Table Settings is an amazing do it yourself guide to the art of table arrangements. Inside you will find over 100 ways to fold napkins. Haven't you always wanted to learn how to make those fancy napkin folds? The step by step photos will guide you through each fold. The first 50 folds are easy while elegant. There is a more intermediate fold section then on to the advanced instructions for very detailed folds.
From the easy section, I loved the Bow, Clutch and the Parasol. The intermediate brings designs such as a Double Envelope and a Fish. On to advanced are the gorgeous designs of Clamshell, Orchid and an oh so adorable Elf Boot perfect for your holiday table.
Besides the many useful napkin folds, Perfect Table Settings details ideas the will enhance any menu. Part 3 features fabulous centerpiece ideas. Also included is a guide to linens and flowers of the season to make any event elegant. There is a wonderful section for party ideas with recipes too! The information inside this gem of a book is an entertainer's dream. Whether you are an experienced party planner or the occasional family party host, you can have a dinner extraordinaire!
You can purchase Perfect Table Settings by Denise Vivaldo at Amazon or check with your local bookseller.
