Do you have fear of parties? Afraid that your home isn’t nice enough, that your cooking isn’t good enough, that your themes aren’t creative enough? Let go of your fear...with help from home-style guru Jonathan Fong. In Parties That Wow, Fong explains that throwing a party is just like putting on a show--and so the parties presented here are theatrical, imaginative, and entertaining, packed with expert guidance and dramatic surprises from the world’s greatest party director. Eighteen fabulous theme parties include Pretty in Pink, Starfish and Stripes, Big and Easy, Come to the Cabaret, and many more. Full "stage directions" include ideas for invitations, décor, table accents, flowers and centerpieces, food, and activities. Just one example: Rock Like an Egyptian features invitations on papyrus, an impressive but inexpensive pyramid of light, chocolate mummies, and a sofa transformed into Cleopatra’s barge (don’t forget the asp!). With show-stopping ideas like these, every party is sure to be a hit.
