   schema:description "Entertaining at home doesn't have to be intimidating anymore with this stylish, accessible new guide from party planning expert Matthew Mead. True to its name, Entertaining Simple includes a wealth of advice and inspiration that will make party planning easy for any host or hostess. The book begins with a run-down of the "Entertaining Simple Pantry"--The essential items everyone should have on hand for simple, laid-back entertaining at home. Mead explains how these basic items can be adapted for absolutely any event or theme, from a casual backyard brunch to a sophisticated dinner party. By using a few basic, versatile pieces in endless creative ways, he makes it possible for even the most budget- and space-conscious reader to create original, customized decor for each and every party. The book includes eight sample party ideas to get readers started, including simple get-togethers like a Lazy Day Brunch, Summer Barbecue, or Family Dinner, as well as parties for a crowd including a Cocktail Party and a Holiday Open House. Each party concept is outlined in detail with advice on choosing a setting, creative decor and serving ideas, and a complete menu of delicious, accessible_recipes. The book includes 56 recipes and more than 350 gorgeous full-color photos by Quentin Bacon that will inspire readers and illustrate each party idea. Mead also includes a helpful resource section, including advice on last-minute entertaining, stocking a home bar, linen and candle care and storage, caring for glassware and flatware, and even creative napkin folding. A comprehensive source guide helps readers locate everything from recipe ingredients and paper goods to linens, dinnerware, storage units, and more."@en ;
