#HolidayGiftGuide - Easy Entertaining for Beginners #Giveaway

Are you one to throw the party or to just go to the party?
I am normally the one just going....
My mom... Now, she does both!

I was lucky enough to have the chance to review a book, Easy Entertaining for Beginners, so now the thought of hosting a get together isn't so scary.
I just never really know what to do...
How to do it...

This book is really a great help!
There are 12 Chapters:
1 My First Cocktail Party
2 Romantic Dinner for Two
3 Dinner for the In-Laws
4 Girlfriends' Tea
5 Mother's Day Brunch
6 Family Fiesta
7 Fourth of July Bash
8 Two Themed Children's Birthday Parties
9 Dinner Party with Close Friends
10 Guys' Night Out
11 My First Thanksgiving
12 Christmas Season Social

So, what did I like?
The simplicity of it all!
This tells you:
The Menu you can do (including food, drinks and even the music)
The Menu includes recipes!
She also includes a Checklist so that you have a great advantage to time management!
(From 2 days before to as the guests arrive!)
It also has "optional shortcuts", "party etiquette", "mistakes to avoid" and "tips to ensure success."

As we all know, I am not a cook and I am not a hostess, but this book breaks it down to give me the confidence to have the faith in myself that I know I could host people for a party and it goes perfect! Thanks to this book, I think I can, I think I can!

I think this is a must have for newlyweds. For those that like entertaining and just about everyone else you can think of!
