I wanted to share these two entertaining Fall 2019 books which focus on party planning from decorations to recipes. One is about big events and the other is more intimate and personal. Both are filled with amazing photography and stylish party picture.
Boston-based party and event planner extraordinaire Bryan Rafanelli ‘s new book A Great Party: Design the Perfect Celebration is filled with wonderful party photos and tips for putting on a great event. Rafanelli Events was behind Chelsea Clinton’s wedding, Obama Whitehouse Christmas Decorations as well as some state dinners, plus countless fundraising events and private weddings.
The book ends with a list of Rafanelli’s Rules for creating a memorable event. Among the several rules are: Think Big; Beauty in Numbers; and Tell a Story.
Whether you’re actually planning a big do or just a fan of gorgeous photos and luxurious party decorations, this book is a visual feast that would also make a great gift for the party planner in your life.
Blogger turned book author Ronda Carman has released her second book Entertaining at Home which features the homes and recipes from friends in the worlds of interior design, architecture, culinary arts and fashion.
Where the Rafanelli book is big E ENTERTAINING, Ronda’s book brings it right into the home with intimate celebrations across the country. Gorgeous photography, table settings and yummy food make this book not only inspirational but also attainable.
I think these two entertaining Fall 2019 books are the perfect pairing for large and small celebrations with lots of amazing photography, great ideas and inspiration just in time for the holiday.
